Bruce Willis has returned to the set of the latest Die Hard film after production was halted because of a fire.
The 57-year-old reprises his role as John McClane, which he first played almost 25 years ago, for A Good Day To Die Hard, the fifth movie in the franchise.

Does he get to do any sexy scenes with Anne Vyalitsyna ?
Might bring a whole new meaning to die hard...
I just saw Live Free or Die Hard last week for the first time...the best in the series aside from the first one imho.
They should have stopped after the first one.
You get tired of Willis bleeding in a T-shirt after a while.
Someone forced you to watch them?
So, how many bodies has he piled up since his first DIE HARD movie?
So how many F-bombs has he piled up since his first DIE HARD movie?
Ummm...I’m guessing you’re not female. :-)
I shared a few scenes with Willis in DIE HARD 2, when I first got in to the industry. He stayed in character the entire time (”method”). We were basically interacting with “John McClain” between takes, for two days, which I found to be surreal.
What was your opinion of him personally? Was he a good guy?
I’m female. Every time I see Bruce Willis in anything (at least anything he’s done since about 1984), I think, “Why is Jerry Doyle using that flat voice and not moving his face? And golly, he’s suddenly looking old ... no wait, that’s the other guy, Bruce Willis!”
I watched two. The second one was so bad, I never wnt to another.
The idea that a plane couldn’t land at Dulles and they all were stuck in the air was so flimsy as to be ridiculous, with Reagan, Richmond, BWI, Andrews, and Pax River all only 5 minutes away.
...not to mention that ILS antennae are FIXED in place, so you CANNOT move the glideslope the way they depicted, in order to crash a landing airplane!
Oh and the whole “we’re gonna keep you from talking to the airplanes overhead”? Excuse me while I run to Radio Shack and pick up a handheld VHF!
You expect a little Hokum in every movie, but that one was just plain Horse dung.
The fire that they all landed by. Give me a break.
I’m with you!!!
Live Free or Die Hard is a keeper, I have it in Blu-Ray...
I like almost everything Bruce Willis makes.
Have you seen Red??
Depends on how you look at it. For example, I never tire of that scene in Snatch where Brad Pitt gets the snot beaten out of him...
Great; it’s another keeper!! :)
Does this film take place in a rest home somewhere?
You're thinking of "Indiana Jones and the Fountain of Geritol".
Willis is a method actor? I wouldn’t have guessed.
I still haven’t seen the 4th diehard.
Hi Perdogg, sorry that I did not see your reply. Because Willis was "in character" those three days, the interaction was mostly him testing stares on me (and others). I was only 26 at the time, star struck, and an "extra/intern", so they worked; I was intimidated. On set, day one, I watched the video assist playback of one scene. There was snow on the ground at the old Stapleton (Denver) Airport and very few shoveled paths. I left the video tent to see that Willis was walking my way. One of us was going to have to step off in to the snow. I said "good morning" and he gave the "John McClane I'm going to kill you stare". I stepped back, to let him pass. That's how the rest of those long days went; him using some of us as test monkeys to see if he was in character. I have a great story about something that happened with him and I in a scene together that you might get a kick out of. I'll email it privately.
