Sixth Die Hard being written

LiveFreeDieHard.jpgWas it any surprise really? Well of course it was, after all A Good Day to Die Hard wasn't that great a Die Hard film was it, something you could see coming from pretty early on. So a while it's no surprise that a sixth would have been in the works if the fifth had been really good, the surprise is that A Good Day to Die Hard actually did so well internationally that a sixth film is now being written.

A writer has been announced and he's been talking about the ideas for the film. It seems that McClane is following Wolverine.

The sixth film in the franchise has a new title already, currently being called Die Hardest it does suggest the end of the line, although frankly that has to be the poorest title I've heard for a Die Hard film and they really need some work on it.

The script is being written by Ben Trebilcook who doesn't have any major direct credits to his name but the trivia in his IMDB profile does say that he worked on earlier drafts of Die Hard 4.0 (Filmstalker review) and Mission: Impossible III.

According to the story through Total Film and The Playlist he's taking this seriously and it sounds as though he's going to try and rip the story back to the core character, comparing it with another franchise comeback film that did just that.

"It is extremely faithful to the franchise and characters and is a natural progression. It's also a very plausible storyline…I feel it could be the 'Rocky Balboa' of the 'Die Hard' franchise."

Now while some will laugh at that what Rocky Balboa (Filmstalker review) did with that story compared to where the rest of the franchise had been going is something rather similar, or rather it suggests a strong direction for Die Hardest. Oh no, that title has to go.

Apparently the rough idea for this film is that it would start off in New York and then the action would head to Tokyo, other than that there's no word of what other characters might be involved and where the story might take our loveable hero, but it's a start.

Is there a desire to see Die Hard 6 then, and what of a title? Surely this will be Bruce Willis' last outing as McClane?
