4. McClane (TBA)
Originally said to be entitled, ‘Die Hard: Year One’, the origin story of the titular hero of ‘Die Hard’ franchise, has reportedly been given a new title: ‘McClane’. “You can tell our intention by the fact that the title page we handed in says, McClane,” producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura revealed to Empire. “We want you to get invested in John McClane more than ever before. I don’t know how you do Die Hard without Bruce,” Bonaventura added when asked about rumors the younger incarnation will get more screen time. “The idea that he’s not very significant in this movie is not accurate at all. We are gonna explore John McClane in his twenties. But just as prominent is the 60-year-old version.”
Written by Carey W. Hayes and Chad Hayes, the script is being described as a sequel-prequel. 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.
