New Die Hard film to be titled McClane

Last year YouGov polled United Kingdom movie fans on whether Die Hard was a Christmas movie or not.

What we do know is Die Hard 6 is a prequel sequel that will switch between John McClane when he was an NYPD rookie before the events of the first movie and the present day.

Previously rumored to be titled "Die Hard: Year One", the sixth installment in the cop-vs. -terrorists franchise will act as a prequel to the original 1988 film as well as a sequel by switching back and forth between Bruce Willis playing the character in his 60s and another actor playing the same character in his 20s. Instead, Empire has revealed that it will actually be called McClane, as producer Lorenzo diBonaventura told the outlet. Says producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura, addressing the early rumours that Willis wasn't really going to be involved at all.

"I don't know how you do "Die Hard" without Bruce," he explained. I'm definitely not sold on the adventures of young John McClane either though. Out of all the franchise's outings, though, it was 2013's A Good Day to Die Hard that seemed to sound the death knell for the bombastic action series - less of a yippee-ki-yay! The idea that he's not very significant in this movie is not accurate at all. "But just as prominent is the 60-year-old version", DiBonaventura told Empire, indicating that Willis, 63, will still have a heavy part to play.

PS: On a personal note, this writer revisited Die Hard With a Vengeance over the weekend and sincerely believes it to be the absolute best Die Hard sequel, by a wide margin.

When we last touched base with Die Hard, it was the fifth film - A Good Day to Die Hard, released in 2013 - that saw McClane heading to Russian Federation to meet up with his son (Jai Courtney), who turned out to be an undercover operative for the Central Intelligence Agency.
