Apparently, the Die Hard series shows no sign of…dying off. We are looking at a sixth movie within the franchise, with a different name. McClane. While it was formally known as Die Hard: Year One, the now sixth installment will simply be named McClane.
Lorenzo di Bonaventura, the producer of the film; exclusively told Empire that the reasoning for the short and simple name was due to wanting the audience to know that the film would be primarily centering around John McClane.
“You can tell our intention by the fact that the title page we handed in says, ‘MCCLANE’. We want you to get invested in John McClane more than ever before.”
The unique aspect of this movie is that there will be a younger actor portraying McClane in his twenties, though the producer ensures viewers that this film is just as much about Bruce Willis’s rendition of the character as it is about exploring his earlier years.
“I don’t know how you do Die Hard without Bruce,” he said. “The idea that he’s not very significant in this movie is not accurate at all. We are gonna explore John McClane in his twenties. But just as prominent is the 60-year-old version.”
Lee Wiseman will direct the film and filming will begin very soon.
