Die Hard 6 Gets Title, Writer

If you thought we’d seen the end of the McClane family, think again.

Total Film reports that following the success of this year’s A Good Day to Die Hard — director John Moore’s film has grossed $302 million worldwide — Fox is moving forward with a sixth installment of the action franchise, tentatively titled Die Hardest.

Screenwriter Ben Trebilcook is said to be at work on a treatment for the film, which takes place primarily in Tokyo. “It is extremely faithful to the franchise and characters and is a natural progression,” he told the website. “It’s also a very plausible storyline.”

A Good Day to Die Hard sent Bruce Willis’ John McClane to Russia help his estranged son Jack (played by Jai Courtney) out of prison, only for the two of them to become embroiled in a terrorist plot.

What role Willis might play in Die Hardest remains to be seen. While the actor had suggested the fifth installment might be his last, Trebilcook mentions him to Total Film, and even says “I feel it could be the Rocky Balboa of the Die Hard franchise.”

    What fucking clowns they are those guys at Fox. It didn’t make jackshit in US, but wait they get the fraction of that 230 mil and they are already moving ahead with the sixth sequel! Ridicilously starving for some money, hoping this one might not flop.

    Who cares where it made the money?

    John McClane is by far one of my favorite characters of all time but I honestly have not seen him since Die Hard 2.

    Then you’re missing out. Live Free or Die Hard was just as good if not better than the original, and that’s saying a lot. The original is my favorite action movie of all time.

    The Die Hard is Cast? Die Hard Die (German language version)? Die Another Hard? A Hard Die’s Night?

    Gary, I meant that Bruce Willis and directors have not stayed true to the character that is John McClane. I definitely agree with you about the original, it is my favorite movie as too!
