LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) – A fourth “Die Hard” movie is slowly coming together, with Len Wiseman (the “Underworld” films) in talks to direct
Bruce Willis in the action franchise.
In “Die Hard 4,” Willis’ John McClane character comes out of retirement to battle an Internet terrorist organization.
The three “Die Hard” films, which came out in 1988, 1990 and 1995, have earned $740 worldwide and influenced a generation of action filmmaking. The franchise also made then-TV actor Willis into a bona fide film star.
In recent weeks, producer Arnold Rifkin had hinted that he was looking for a hot, young filmmaker to inject new life into the franchise. Wiseman, whose vampire thriller “Underworld: Evolution” opened at No. 1 in January, fits the bill. He made his feature directorial debut with 2003’s “Underworld,” both films starring his wife,
The last “Die Hard” film, “Die Hard: With a Vengeance,” was directed by John McTiernan, the biggest name indicted so far in the Hollywood wiretapping scandal involving disgraced celebrity sleuth Anthony Pellicano. He is scheduled to be sentenced in U.S. District Court later this month after pleading guilty in April to lying to federal agents.
I love the Die Hard series and the only thing that I request that they don’t do is kill off John McClaine, if they do that, the movie would suck. It had been rumored for a long time that they were going to do that, but they also said the same thing about Mel Gibson’s character in Lethal Weapon 4, and they didn’t do that. Maybe they can spare us the crap that would be a fourth Die Hard movie, if they kill off McClaine, and not make it.
Anyone thinking that this will be horrible, think again, they’ve waited long enough on this movie I don’t think it’ll be bad. But then again, George Lucas did make Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace….
Now, I’ve never seen either Underworld or Underworld: Evolution, but I’ve heard that they are great movies and I want to see them, and like X-men (the original) and Batman Begins along with Spiderman, and a bunch of other movies, when I heard which director was attached to direct them, I went out and rented their movies, I saw Bryan Singer’s Usual Suspects and knew X-men was in good hands, along with the rest of them. He isn’t my first choice to direct Die Hard 4 (or 4.0, whatever the title ends up being) but I’m sure he came cheap.
Now, I’m on my way to Warnock to work tonight, Peanut isn’t feeling too good so I came all the way back to the apartment to check on him.
