Ryan Gosling cast as John McClane in Die Hard reboot!

04.01.2015

Ho ho ho, now I have...a reboot? Yes, FOX has announced plans for a DIE HARD reboot, and Ryan Gosling has been tapped to play John "Yippee-ki-yay, Mother Russia" McClane. So much for DIE HARD 6 (working title DIE HARDEST), I guess. Additionaly, sources tell Deadline that it will be a straight-up remake of the classic action movie, meaning McClane will once again find himself at the wrong place (Nakatomi Plaza) at the wrong time (Christmas Eve), and Hans Gruber will be the villain.

So what does Bruce Willis think of all of this? Well, the same sources also have FOX pursuing Willis for the Hans Gruber role, (played by Alan Rickman in the 1988 film) but instead of a German terrorist, the character will be a disgruntled U.S. Army general. No director has been set, but those being considered are Len Wiseman (who did LIVE FREE OR DIE HARD) and Alan Taylor (THOR: THE DARK WORLD, TERMINATOR: GENISYS).

Although A GOOD DAY TO DIE HARD received abysmal reviews and had an underwhelming run at the domestic box office, I'm still shocked a reboot of the franchise is in the works, and I'm even more surprised that Willis might be interested in the Gruber role. As for Gosling as McClane, personally I think the actor is a little too good looking to play the everyman NYPD officer, however I still think it could work. Are you down for a Ryan Gosling-led DIE HARD remake, or would you rather walk barefoot across a floor of broken glass?

DIE HARD is set to open on July 1, 2016.

Right away, luckily, I assumed this was an April Fool's joke right after reading the headline's title...It is, right?...Well answer that tomorrow. I won't believe any answers today.

I know you guys are trying to annoy as many people with your April fools joke, but if this wasn't a remake and just had gosling play McClane on amother adventure, I'd be OK with that

This reeks of April Fools Days

Bruce Willis as Hans Gruber?!?? Let me guess he'll probably be called 'Hank Groosler' as wink-wink to (pun unintended) die hard fans of the series and Nakatomi Tower will probably be changed to Nastromovic Tower because.. Olegarcs Rule! And since this will definetly be PG13 (new generation, more money, yada,yada) John McClane will utter "Yippy-ka-yay Mother Buster!!"

Sorry, I'm not buying it.

Thank God this is just an April Fool's joke. Gosling is much better than this type of material.

I mean, who knows. Before the whole destruction of the franchise with the fifth entry, he maybe would have been a good choice for Bruce Willis' son, instead of Jai Courtney.

Well thanks for getting me all worked up for nothing (thought the Citiczen Kane for awfully good was the only April fools joke). The sad thing is I could actually see modern day Hollywood attempting this.

Well they can't bring Bruce Willis back. At his age he'd be lucky if he could die semi hard.

GTFO!@!!@$!$@%!$

Why?!!!!! Just stop. This is beyond stupid. The original is awesome! There is no need for a remake. This is just lazy. Lazy Hollywood. Just looking to squeeze money out of people. No need for this. Just because the franchise has gone downhill over the years, doesn't mean it should be rebooted. Just let it die. SAME EXACT STORY! What is the point? Watch the original. Just stop. If people stop supporting stupid remakes, remakes will stop being made, and oh I don't know, maybe they will have to be

Easiest way to spot a fake April Fools' headline?

Look for the over-enthusiastic exclamation point at the end of the title.

Not bad at all, but I do prefer the April Fool's Day joke in which Ryan Gosling had been cast as Walt Disney in a film based in the fan poster that graphic designer made.
