Len Wiseman has pitched Die Hard 6 as an origin story
It looks like Fox are about to green light a sixth Die Hard movie under the aegis of Len Wiseman (Underworld). Despite the lukewarm reception to the last two films, it seems Fox are still keen on the franchise and Wiseman has come up with a Die Hard: Year One prequel/sequel concept that will act as both an origin story AND furthering the unlucky future life of John McClane.
Unsurprisingly, online reaction isn't particularly good with Twitter in particular awash with amusement, anger and disappointment in equal proportion...
Apparently Die Hard 6 is gonna be a prequel, so expect Bruce Willis to have hair, go vest shopping and receive a party invitation.— Fudgey (@fudgecrumpet) October 15, 2015
They're making a Die Hard 6? They're making a Die Hard 6 and it's a prequel to Die Hard? What has anyone done to deserve that?— Wardy (@td_ward) October 15, 2015
