Legendary action movie icon Bruce Willis can currently be seen on the big screen in his fifth go-round as John McClane, the perpetually "wrong guy in the wrong place at the wrong time," in A Good Day to Die Hard. In his 28-year career as an actor, Willis has starred in more than 60 movies — five last year alone — playing such diverse characters as a time travelling hitman, a deep-sea oil driller (in space), a taxicab driver (in space), a dead child psychologist, an honorable boxer with a killer hook, an assassin named "Mr. Goodkat," a professional gambler named "Dink," and a charming killer named "The Tulip." Some of his movies have become classics, while others...not so much, but they all boast one thing: Willis himself, a bonafide movie star the likes of which are rarely seen in Hollywood anymore.

"I'm a woman and can't be taken for granted. Life's a bitch, now so am I."
Robert Rodriguez made us wait an agonizingly long seven years before he felt that the script for the follow-up to Sin City was good enough to go into production, but the extra three months it took for him to choose the actress to play the femme fatale in the movie were almost unbearable. It was recently revealed that Eva Green has been selected to play Ava Lord in Sin City: A Dame to Kill For, inspired casting that already has fans of the original movie and of the comic books created by Frank Miller salivating for opening day.
You can't have a great hero without a great villain. After all, it's the dastardly actions of the villains that provide the necessary obstacles for the heroes to overcome to achieve their greatness. But, just because a villain is evil to the core, that doesn't mean that she can't also be incredibly sexy. Help us choose the movies that have the hottest, the sexiest, the deadliest female villains.

Back in 1992, the Die Hard franchise was only at two installments, with John McClane (Bruce Willis) having successfully defending the Nakatomi building and stopped a rogue counter-terrorist unit from an airport — both on Christmas Eve. Also in 1992, Ben Stiller had yet to break out as a movie star and was working on his own show, The Ben Stiller Show, which was canceled by Fox after 12 episodes yet went on to win an Emmy Award for Outstanding Writing the following year. To say the show was before its time would be an understatement, one that is underlined by the re-discovery of a Die Hard 12 sketch (via The Playlist), which sees Stiller stopping terrorists during a regular visit to the grocery store. It may have seemed ridiculous at the time, yet, years later, Willis would surf a military jet in 2007's Live Free or Die Hard and fight terrorists in Moscow in this month's A Good Day to Die Hard. watch the sketch >> Posted 02.23.13 by Ryan
Looks like Fox is finally ready to get serious about Die Hard 5 before Bruce Willis starts collecting social security (if you think that's harsh, we'd like to note that Willis himself said in 2009 that the studio better get to work on another Die Hard since he wasn't "getting any younger"). Max Payne director John Moore was officially hired to direct in September, but nothing more has been revealed about the upcoming sequel. More details have finally come to light. release dates revealed for Taken 2 and Percy Jackson 2 >> Posted 10.12.11 by Ryan
Twentieth Century Fox has been trying to put together Die Hard 5 (working title) since late 2009, when franchise star Bruce Willis revealed that "Fox is already talking about doing another one." Willis added that the studio "better get it done soon" because, he admitted, "I'm not getting any younger." Years later, the studio finally has their director.
The same was said in February, when Fox hired Smart People director Noam Murro to helm the sequel, but when Murro landed the directing job for Warner Brothers' 300 sequel, 300: Battle of Artemisia (formerly Xerxes), Murro had to drop out of Die Hard 5, leaving the director's chair open for Max Payne director John Moore to "take or leave."

Live Free or Die Hard (LFODH) was both a hit at the box office and with critics so it's no wonder that Twentieth Century Fox has a sequel in the works. However, it's been really slow going on Die Hard 5 (working title) so far. Fox hired Skip Woods (The A-Team) to write the screenplay, but the studio apparently had problems with early drafts and asked Woods to go "back to the drawing board." Then, despite series star Bruce Willis' desire to see LFODH director Len Wiseman return to helm the sequel, Fox hired Noam Murro (Smart People) instead. Now, Twitch has reported that Murro's work on the sequel to 300, 300: Battle of Artemisia (formerly Xerxes), has forced him to drop out as director of Die Hard 5. According to Twitch, the director's chair is now John Moore's (Max Payne) "to take or leave." more about Die Hard 5 >> Posted 08.01.11 by BrentJS

A host of new movie rumors have popped up recently and, while we let the majority of them slide, a few are just too juicy to ignore. The first set of rumors concerns the possible new movie titles for the sequel to Live Free or Die Hard and the planned reboot of the Fantastic Four franchise. The source is Harry Knowles of AICN, a notorious movie blogger with a good track record of getting the dirt on Hollywood's biggest movies, so these carry some weight. The other rumor comes from BleedingCool, the site that recently spread the rumor that Michael Fassbender had been offered a role in Sony's Spider-Man reboot as the main villain, and claims to reveal just which villain Fassbender might be playing.

When Bruce Willis returned to the Die Hard franchise after a 12-year hiatus, many considered it a desperate attempt by an aging actor to revitalize his flagging career. Then Live Free or Die Hard proved the detractors wrong, pleasing fans as well as critics and more than tripling the return on its $110 million budget.A fifth Die Hard seemed inevitable, especially after Willis said he was game to return as John McClane.
Now, it appears that sequel is underway, with THR writing that Fox isin negotiations with Skip Woods (X-Men Origins: Wolverine) to draft a Die Hard 5 script, with Alex Young (Predators) producing. In his last interview about the possibility of Die Hard 5, Willis said that he would like to see Live Free or Die Hard director Len Wiseman back at the helm. He went on to say that his contribution to the plot would be to take McClane's penchant for being "the wrong guy in the wrong place at the wrong time" to a "worldwide" stage.

While doing press for his upcoming Cop Out, MTV asked Bruce Willis to compare his character in Cop Out to John McClane, the hard luck cop he's played in four Die Hard movies. While Willis has admitted in the past that he would like to make another Die Hard, Willis surprisingly announcing that Die Hard 5 could begin production "next year."
There is no John McClane. The John McClane that exists is only in film and in people's minds. And it continues to grow, that mythology continues to grow, that mythology continues to grow and I take a certain amount of pride in being part of that [mythology], and the fact that I still get to do it. I think we're going to do a Die Hard 5 next year.
And what would Willis like to see happen in Die Hard 5?
Well it's got to go worldwide. That would be my contribution to [the next movie]. I would hire [Live Free or Die Hard director] Len Wiseman right now.
Another Die Hard may not be the only Willis sequel that could be in the works. Willis says that director M. Night Shymalan is considering an Unbreakable sequel.
I talked to [Shyamalan] over the holidays, and he is still thinking about doing the fight movie between me and Sam [Jackson] that we were going to do and we chose to do the origin.
In Unbreakable, Jackson discovers that he is Willis' nemesis at the end of the movie, though how Jackson's fragile villain and Willis' indestructible hero would do battle is a question only Shymalan could answer. Willis would be fine with the sequel.
As long as Sam can make it, I'm up for it. Posted 02.24.10 by Ryan
