Rumor: 'Die Hard 6' Being Developed As A Possible Reteam Between 'Vengeance' Stars Bruce Willis & Samuel L. Jackson

When “A Good Day to Die Hard” came out early last year, it was easily the least successful film of the franchise. The movie was critically reviled and only raked in $67 million in the U.S. box office. You would think 20th Century Fox would take this as a sign that they should finally put this franchise to rest, but “A Good Day to Die Hard” somehow managed to become an international hit with $237 million alone. So, of course, that means we’re getting a sixth “Die Hard” film.

When “A Good Day to Die Hard” came out early last year, it was easily the least successful film of the franchise. The movie was critically reviled and only raked in $67 million in the U.S. box office. You would think 20th Century Fox would take this as a sign that they should finally put this franchise to rest, but “A Good Day to Die Hard” somehow managed to become an international hit with $237 million alone. So, of course, that means we’re getting a sixth 'Die Hard' film.

If you’re a huge fan of the franchise, however, this rumor may actually perk your interest in a sixth 'Die Hard' film. According to a scoop from Latino Review’s El Mayimbe, Fox is currently meeting with writers for pitches on a new 'Die Hard' film with the intention of reuniting John McClane with his “Die Hard With a Vengeance” partner, Zeus Carver, played by Samuel L. Jackson. While we cannot take too much stock in such a scoop, as a number of things could go wrong to prevent a Jackson/Willis reunion from happening, it’s still nice to dream. And it's a dream that has apparently been conjured up in the past.

"They kept saying they were going to put us back together in another Die Hard movie, but it never happened," Jackson recently told Movies.com.

Now obviously, merely pairing Bruce Willis with Samuel L. Jackson doesn’t guarantee that the sixth film would be an improvement over the last two installments. But still, it’s better than having Willis reteam with Justin Long or Jai Courtney. Next year would be the 20th anniversary of “Die Hard With a Vengeance,” could we see a Jackson/Willis reunion by then? And with director John McTiernan having just been released from prison, would he be willing to return to the franchise as well? Until we get some actual news regarding the sixth film, it’s all just speculation and it seems the studio is trying any idea that comes up at this point—last fall, it was rumored the sequel would take John McClane to Japan. Hopefully, we’ll hear more about this development soon.
