"A Good Day To Die Hard" was fucking awful, but here's the thing: it made a shitpile of money. While American audiences mostly shrugged, international audiences lined up, and taking in $302 million worldwide, 'A Good Day' has become the third best performing entry in the franchise. So, of course, Fox is thinking about getting John McClane back in action before Bruce Willis really and truly is too old for this shit.

A Good Day to Die Hard Bruce Willis

"A Good Day To Die Hard" was fucking awful, but here's the thing: it made a shitpile of money. While American audiences mostly shrugged, international audiences lined up, and taking in $302 million worldwide, 'A Good Day' has become the third best performing entry in the franchise. So, of course, Fox is thinking about getting John McClane back in action before Bruce Willis really and truly is too old for this shit.

Total Film reveals that Brit writer Ben Trebilcook is currently working on "Die Hardest" (groan), which is only at the treatment stage at the moment. Still, it seems Fox is eager to capitalize on audiences overseas, even if at home interest seems to have waned. While exact story details are still being worked out, the story will again start in New York City but then take the action to Tokyo. "Die Hard: Tokyo Drift"? No word yet on if Jai Courtney will return or even if Willis or the studio will sign off on the idea (though dude will pretty much sign off on anything if the paycheck is right).

“It is extremely faithful to the franchise and characters and is a natural progression. It's also a very plausible storyline,” Trebilcook said, rather hilariously, considering plausibility with this series went out the window a couple movies ago. He also adds: "I feel it could be the 'Rocky Balboa' of the 'Die Hard' franchise." That's not the most compelling endorsement.

So, should McClane come back and try and end this series on somewhat of a high note? Should they let this thing die hard already (ha)? Let us know below.
