UPDATE: BRUCE WILLIS revealed on The Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon that the script for DIE HARD 6 has been completed!

UPDATE: Producer LEN WISEMAN updated the status of DIE HARD 6 and confirmed that DIE HARD 6 will be a hybrid prequel/sequel ala ‘The Godfather 2’. He stated regarding the exploration of ‘John McClane’ that “it’s a delicate balance of giving you a sense of what started McClane, because McClane when he comes into Die Hard 1 has a lot of emotional baggage, baggage in general moreso than a lot of our other action characters in the sense that he’s already divorced. He’s got an incredible chip on his shoulder. He’s bitter. His captain hates him, doesn’t want him back in New York. What caused all that? Why was he already that guy?”

Stay tuned for more details.

Best known for his work on the ‘Underworld’ franchise, director LEN WISEMAN is in early talks to produce and helm the sixth installment of ‘Die Hard’. The film is titled DIE HARD: YEAR ONE and will take the ‘Batman Begins’ route to focus on the origins of a young ‘John McClane’ in 1979 New York City.

Even though it is planned to be a prequel, BRUCE WILLIS is expected to return to serve as “the narrative as a present-day version of McClane”.

LORENZO DI BONAVENTURA (Transformers, G.I. Joe) is set to produce alongside Wiseman.

Wiseman is no stranger to the franchise as he also directed 2007’s ‘Live Free Or Die Hard’. Despite being rated PG-13, the film fared much better with audiences (grossing close to $390 million worldwide) compared to the awful fifth film, 2013’s ‘A Good Day To Die Hard’ directed by John Moore.

No words yet on who will be playing the young ‘John McClane’. Who do you think they should cast? Comment below!
