Bruce Willis Wants To Do More Die Hard-ing
Posted 10.06.09 by Ryan
With Surrogates in theaters and enjoying a disappointing run, why wouldn't Bruce Willis want to return as John McClane in another Die Hard? Willis says it's all about the timing.
I would love to do another one but they better get it done soon, what with the march of time and all that. I'm not getting any younger.
Willis may be getting older, but he was spry enough to lift the fourth Die Hard installment, Live Free or Die Hard to $383 million worldwide. Around the time of Live Free's release, Willis told Cinematical that Fox was excited for another Die Hard.
Fox is already talking about doing another one. I told them I would only do it if [director] Len [Wiseman] is involved, and Maggie Q. And Justin [Long], of course. You can't do one without Justin.
Two years later, Willis must be getting anxious. Still, with older action stars like Sylvester Stallone and Harrison Ford still working in their respective action franchises, it's a good bet there's a future for Die Hard 5. Just don't make it anything like Die Hard 2, the one sequel Willis hates.
The second film, if you go back and look at the second film, there are so many f**kin' references, referring to the first film. It was such bulls**t, I just hated it. It was really just a stupid, stupid thing. I don't know, I mean I liked jumping out of the helicopter onto the wing of that plane. I liked that from the second one. But I'd have to look at it to tell you if there was anything else I liked.
