LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) John McClane's string of bad luck may not yet be over.
"Hitman" screenwriter Skip Woods is in negotiations with 20th Century Fox to take a crack at a new "Die Hard" script. The New York cop known for consistently being in the wrong place at the right time has already survived four run-ins with terrorists, traitors and psychotic loose cannons of one stripe or another.
In his last outing, "Live Free or Die Hard," written by Mark Bomback and directed by Len Wiseman in 2007, McClane battled Web terrorists to $378 million in worldwide grosses -- 20 years after pitching Hans Gruber out a broken window at Fox towers. The studio sees another installment as a strong bet.
There's no word yet on the new project's story line, but former Fox executive Alex Young ("Unstoppable") is producing.

....terrorists take over Bruce Willis’ retirement home?
.....and spray painted pecs and abs. ;-)
His daughter Lucy (Mary Elizabeth Winstead) is now on the NYPD and her boyfriend (Perdogg), with a heavy sex scene, must save John Mclane (Bruce Willis) who has been kidnapped by the Russian Mob.
This one needs to have Muslim jihadis! How long has it been since we’ve had Muzzies doing jihad at the box office?
How about the terrorists being Muslim for a change, you know, like the real world?
Bruce “Charlie Crist” Willis?
Why? Are you the one writing it?
If you are, I would privately send you some thoughts on the series, if that would help.
I’ve seen the original at least 10 times but I wanted my money back after that last one.
Would he be orange? LOL!
Me, writing scripts..?
Nope. I have a hard time focusing as is.
altho considering some of the stuff on the screen lately.. ;-)
Let "Indiana Jones and the Really Bad Script" serve as a warning.
Bruce might look good in orange.
Doesn’t David Cameron in the UK look a little orange?
“die with dignity” sounds like the title for the last Die Hard movie.
Ok, then if you aren’t the writer I can give away my movie theme.
McClain shoots a gunman holding a hostage on a bridge in the opening scene.
Then, he has to turn in his badge and gun to internal affairs and sit for the next 40 minutes of the movie filling out paperwork, appearing in court (the next of kin sue.) and sitting at a desk filing cold case files until cleared to go back on the street.
Then, he answers property crime calls till the end of the movie.
Probably more of an art house take on the whole series.
Why, yes. I think he does.
Tie to have his kid trying to fill the old man’s shoes, like Indiana Jones.
