Die Hard 5?

Jun. 4, 2007by: James Thoo
Hot on the heels of the Justin Long's comments that LIVE FREE OR DIE HARD is going to rock, in spite of the soft PG-13 rating, now we have some even better news! Apparently, Willis is willing to climb on board another! He told IESB.net,

I told them I'd only do it if Len [Wiseman] was involved and Maggie Q and Justin [Long] of course. It's been since '95 so [its been] 12 years and 21 years is the span of all four of em. So, you can see me when I'm 31 and you can see me when I'm 52. So you guys will decide."

Good news? Bad news? Stupid question? I vote the latter. Bruce Willis is bad ass and so is DIE HARD. I'll be up for as many movies as he's willing to be involved in. The only time I'm not gonna be interested in seeing John McClane get his ass-kicking on is when Willis retires and some studio tries to reboot the franchise with Gerard Butler or somebody (nothing against Butler). Hopefully, this revelation means that the movie actually is pretty good, especially if he wants Wiseman back, and even in spite of the ratings issue.
Extra Tidbit: I've had enough of looking at stills of Bruce Willis. DIE HARD is about Maggie Q too.

tv die hard?

No, it's not like a TV Die-hard, the MMPA isn't to strict on swearing these days, but are on violence. This is probably light on the blood, which is fine as long as a lot of terrorists get shot and buildings get blown to shit.

Actually it isnt...

Like watching Die Hard on TV. Just like Xander and Taldaran stated the rating system is so strange now that just because its PG 13 dont mean it will be a kids movie, i have seen some movies where i had ot grab the case and say this is PG isnt it. So no im not worried. 80s to now Rating system has changed drastically. So lets see how this one holds up. And what possibly could u want in this movie outside of seeing ppls heads get blown off i mean really?

Like on TV

A PG-13 DIE HARD movie is like watching a DIE HARD movie on TV, and hear Willis utter the infamous line like this (from the TV version of DIE HARDER):"Yippie Kay-Ya Mr. Falcon!"

Yeah. I can't wait.

I agree with Taldaran... I have the "X-rated" version of Robocop on Criterion and there is no way that in this day and age that it would get such an extreme rating... it would just be a normal R.

Times change so with movies like Hostel coming out being R it is no surprise that Die Hard could easily be PG-13 now... the only thing that would have made it R is language and he can still say his famous line at least once with the F word.

Well if you take into account the change in society since the first die hard film, the pg-13 rating does not mean a sacrifice in qualtiy. Studios are simply able to get away with a bit more than they use to. After all now you can hear shit, bitch and ass on TV without being cencored, when 20 years ago you couldn't. You take that stuff into account when rating a film than many R films of the past would be considered PG-13 today.

WHY NOT?

If Die Hard 4 will be good (and judging by the trailer it looks that way), and if crew from 4 will be in 5, why not? So far all three Die Hard movies have been great.

sigh

I will only be watching a die-hard flick that is rated R. Unless it's given that rating... the movie can piss in the wind for all I care.
