Die Hard Comic Book Prequel Coming This August
05.29.09 by REELZ
The prequel-slash-origin-story silliness continues. MTV reports that this August, Boom! Studios will release a comic book prequel to the 1988 action classic Die Hard, starring Bruce Willis.
What's it called? Die Hard: Year One, of course. Not to be confused with Batman: Year One, or Year One starring Jack Black and Michael Cera. (They're not very creative with titles either, are they?)
The only plot detail available is that the story follows a younger John McClane who must deal with a crisis during the 1976 Bicentennial celebrations. We're wondering if they couldn't just drop footage of McClane into Robert Altman's Nashville and get the movie adaptation over with.
