Find out here which figure from John McClane's past comes back for A Good Day To Die Hard

This should go without saying, but: SPOILERS.

And you thought there'd be no surprises in store for John McClane's fifth adventure.

Filming in Hungary even as we speak, A GOOD DAY TO DIE HARD finds John McClane heading on over to Russia to bail his son Jack (played by Jai Courtney) out of jail only to discover that there's a good deal more to his son's situation than that which meets the eye.  Crazy action shit ensues, though hopefully not so crazy as to have McClane going head to head against a f***ing plane.

The thing is, it turns out that Jack isn't going to be the only family member floating around A GOOD DAY TO DIE HARD - an extra on the movie wrote up this little tidbit in his blog just yesterday:  "I got to work with Bruce Willis again, which is always nice. The best, though, was that I got to work with Mary Elizabeth Winstead, who plays Willis' daughter."  He intimated nothing about how or why her character is in the movie, though a conclusion or two may be drawn from how 1) the extra in question was playing a CIA agent in the scene and 2) the scene takes place near the end of the movie.

So what do you think about her return, and how do you think she might be involved?

Extra Tidbit: While nothing can ever compare to the original DIE HARD (also one of the best Christmas movies out there), I actually enjoyed LIVE FREE OR DIE HARD (plane bit excluded).

BRING BACK ARGYLE AND HOLLY GENERRO!

Seriously- Devo'reaux's IMDB credits end in 2000 with "Second Transvestite" for the film 'Shadow Hours' (with no films between 1992 and then) and his photos/biography were empty until today. Just checked now and he's got a brand new headshot and a film listed 'Sandbar'. I say we bring Argyle back as John and Holly's personal assistant/driver- you'd think McClain would be a gazillionaire now anyway after selling off publishing rights/interview payments/government payoffs, etc.

I want Tarantino's next to be the Cheerleader movie MEW's character was shooting in 'Death Proof.' Picturing some crazy mash-up of American Graffiti, The Longest Yard, and those 'Women in Prison' films of the 70s.

A Good Day to Spoiler-ish Hard

A previous DH4 draft of mine featured Holly, Jack, Lucy, Zeus, Al Powell and even Argyle the limo driver.If just one, then I would love love to see Powell in there.. and Holly.. Damnit, two. From the pics I posted on Twitter of Winstead earlier, she's dropping McClane off at the airport or.. maybe she's picking him up.

Yeah I liked Live Free or Die Hard...

Clearly it wasn't as good a the first or third (which is honestly my favorite), but it was better than any of the other action movies in 2007.
But let's get down to it, they need to make a 6th one. Make it the last one, and have Bonnie Bedelia and Samuel L. Jackson back again. Maybe bring the kids along too.
And please please please call it "Old Habits Die Hard"

I was hoping that the figure would be either the word "Fuck," some gratuitous violence, or a few bloody kill scenes. Can't wait to hear "Yippe Kay yay, Master Fapper!"

I'm down with this. After all these years I finally saw LFoDH and while not bad it's not Die Hard. The end however did get me wondering if *SPOILER*Lucy ever did hook up with Matt at the end, he saved her life and they did seem smitten even if John wasn't feeling it.

How hard would it be to bring back Holly Gennero for a full family reunion?
