It looks like the next installment of the iconic torn vests may be courtesy of an Irish man – director John Moore (Max Payne). The film was to be the baby of Noam Murro but apparently the strain of creating the 300 prequel has forced him to leave the project.
The script is by writer Skip Woods (X-Men Origins: Wolverine) and centres on John McClane (Bruce Willis) as he teams up with his son when the Ruskies get up to their old tricks again.
So how many times can a man die hard? Willis plans to retire gracefully, vowing that 6 will be the magic number: “At the moment, I can run and I can fight on screen. But there will come a time when I no longer want to do that. That’s when I’ll step away from the Die Hard films.”
