What’s with all the origin stories these days? Are audiences asking for them? Do studios think movie fans want their favorite characters demystified and explained to death? Isn’t a character’s behavior enough to illustrate where they’ve been and what they’ve seen? Apparently not, which is why we hear so much news about origin stories and prequels. One of the most notable “untold stories” we’ll see soon is Die Hard Year One, a prequel/sequel fans have been weary of ever since it was announced.

Below, director Len Wiseman explains his approach to the Die Hard prequel.

Mark Millar Pitches in on That ‘Die Hard 6’ Pitch

Mark Millar Die Hard Pitch

The Die Hard franchise is in a bit of rut. The last installment in the series, A Good Day to Die Hard, not only completely missed the appeal of John McClane (Bruce Willis), but it was also just a bad movie. For the next sequel, Die Hard Year One, Fox has decided to take a different approach by bringing back director Len Wiseman (Live Free or Die Hard) and setting part of the story in 1979, showing how McClane became the cop we all know.

A few days ago Eric D. Wilkinson, a producer and writer of indies, took out a full-page ad in The Hollywood Reporter with his pitch for the next Die Hard, which comic book writer Mark Millar (Kick-Ass) has now expanded upon.
