Die Hard 6 to be both origin story and sequel

Die Hard 6 is also set to serve as Die Hard: Year One. Len Wiseman is returning to direct...

It's little secret that Fox wants another Die Hard movie, and Bruce Willis - having sleepwalked his way through a bad A Good Day To Die Hard - is seemingly keen to give John McClane one last hurrah too. But we never quite saw it happening like this.

Deadline is reporting that Die Hard 6 is to be something of an origins movie.

Take a minute.

It'll be a story part set in 1979, with McClane coming up as a cop in New York City, showing how he became the character we met at the start of the first movie (not that he was much of a superhero or anything at the start of the first Die Hard, but we'll park that there for the minute). Furthermore, the film will also reportedly leave room for Willis to play the role in the present day, too. It sounds a bit Die Hard meets Looper on the surface, but it looks like it'll be a Die Hard sequel and prequel, that's just split.

Furthermore, it's looking like it's going to involve Len Wiseman, who directed Die Hard 4.0. Wiseman pitched the angle to producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura, who is likely to join the film too. Wiseman is set to direct again, and the search is now on for a screenwriter to turn all of this into a workable script.

Who will play the younger McClane in the project that's apparently being referred to as Die Hard: Year One obviously remains to be seen.
