"You can tell our intention by the fact that the title page we handed in says, 'McCLANE.' We want you to get invested in John McClane more than ever before".

Nevertheless, the studio's pushing forward with Die Hard 6 and now, we have an official title for the film.

He added: "I don't know how you do Die Hard without Bruce".

Directed by Len Wisemen, the film will follow 60-year-old McClane as well as a younger incarnation of him in his 20s. Half of the film will follow a 20-something John McClane in 1976 as he's just getting started in the NYPD, with the second half focused on Bruce Willis as a still badass 60-year-old version of the character.

'Law & Order: Hate Crimes' Procedural Is Coming to NBC
The next chapter in Dick Wolf's criminal justice franchise is officially in the works with NBC ordering 13 episodes of Law & Order: Hate Crimes .

So now the film is called "McClane", in honor of the title character. Originally, when we first heard about this project, it was being billed as a prequel that would show us how young beat cop McClane became the wisecracking, yippie ki-yay motherf$#ker that we would all come to know and love one day.

At some point, someone's going to have to drop the 'Die Hard' prequel off a building after nailing it in the head with a gun strapped to your back with Christmas gift-wrapping tape. It has not yet been confirmed if McClane's children, Lucy (Mary Elizebeth Winstead) and Jack (Jai Courtney), who both appeared in previous sequels, will show up as well.

The "Die Hard" film series revolves around John McClane, a NY and Los Angeles police detective who constantly finds himself in sticky situations. Lorenzo di Bonaventura (Transformers franchise, The Meg) is producing.

According to Empire Magazine, the script for the new Die Hard movie has been turned in, and it's simply called McClane. I'm definitely not sold on the adventures of young John McClane either though.
