Bruce Willis has some thoughts on Die Hard: Year One

10.21.2015

Someone is serious about making a sixth DIE HARD movie. Even though each new entry into the series has looked like a worse idea than the one before, that isn't stopping 20th Century Fox from going back to the well again with John McClane. This time, an origin story is on the table with Len Wiseman involved that would be called DIE HARD: YEAR ONE and... well, I know you're dying to hear what Bruce Willis thinks about these plans. (Hint: It's right in line with what you already thought.)

It's a very good idea, a really tricky idea, and I'm very happy about it. It's a really cool idea, because it's the origin story. It's gonna happen at the beginning of this. We're going to bounce back and forth.

Now for those of you who might not speak Bruce Willis, allow me to translate for you.

I can't believe they still want to make these movies, and they want to pay me a lot for them, too. I stopped trying like two sequels ago, but they don't care. DIE HARD is DIE HARD, so what the hell...? I can do this movie in my sleep... Just don't scratch my face.

DIE HARD hasn't been DIE HARD for a long time, and Bruce Willis hasn't been anything close to resembling John McClane in about that same timeframe. Going origin is infuriating for any fan of the original, considering that film was really the start of the character period... But try to explain that to anyone intent on cashing in on the brand name value of DIE HARD and you'll wind up walking away from the conversation pissed-off.

In the first movie he was a nyc cop of no notoriety who was separated from his family. Sooooo this origin story is going to be the story of a boring cop in new york with no family?

The only way that FOX could make another good DIE HARD film is that they re-release the original in theaters, Bruce Willis doesn't seem to give a shit about the direction of the franchise by the way.

The hell is he talking about? Like, putting a cgi screen on his face, making him young and bouncing from film to film?

Meh... let them keep making them. They're entertaining... but just not up to the Die Hard caliber. Certainly not re-watchable. IMO, 'with a vengeance' was the last kick ass Die Hard film.

I can do this movie in my sleep

Yes, Bruce. That is why most of your films over the past 10 to 15 years have been crap. Waken up every once and a while and we might get a half-decent movie out of you like Red or Tears of the Sun. For better films we need to go back further. You are not John McClane and the non-efforts you have made since 3 do John McClane a disservice. And if John McClane was a superhero rather than an every-man prior to NakatomI, why, the fuck, is he riding coach to LA to meet an ex-wife?

Bruce Willis didn't say that he could do these movies in his sleep. The first quote was what Willis actually said; the second quote was Billy Donnelly's "translation" of Willis' words.

Year One?

Don't make me puke. Wouldn't year one have started with the siege of the Nakatomi building?

Pissed off doesn't even begin with this idea. The last Die Hard movie was an abomination plain and simple. I have no hope for this one either.

Terrible Idea

Fan of the first 3 and thought 4 and 5 were good entertainment but not worthy of the name DIE HARD.
Prequel is probably the worst they can do. My advice: Get Willis, Samuel L Jackson and McTiernan back for one LAST balls to the wall installment.

I think I'll just go watch the original one again. The last entry absolutely killed this franchise to the point that I don't even care anymore about sequels; just like the Terminator franchise.
