It could be as tired as heck, as primeval as 60 year old P.J’s and pong of purely greenbacks, and “Die Hard 4” will start make money. Much like “Terminator 3” and say, a “Rocky 6”, it’s almost guaranteed to make money – regardless of how good or bad the film itself is. But that’s a whole different tangent I’m going off onto now. Meantime, let’s check out the plans for “Die Hard 4”

Bruce Willis tells USA Today that although he’s not a fan of sequels, he is contracted to do “Die Hard 4” next year. "Sequels are not new movies," he says. "They’re another chapter of a movie you’ve already seen. … I have a little distaste for them based on how much TV I did."

Understandably, he expresses some reservations about the fourth instalment of Die Hard.

"I always said the genre had kind of run out of gas and had to reinvent itself," he says. "I think that’s the goal Fox has also. Maybe too much time has gone by since the last one. We’ll see."

The last Die Hard film opened in 1995, and Willis openly says that the first Die Hard in 1988 "was the only good one."

He draws a comparison between the action films of its time and current ones: "If the first Die Hard were an analog version of an action movie, the kind of action movies that are being made right now are all digital. So, Die Hard 4 would have to be brought up to the modern age."

So what would the ageing action hero like to do? We’ll according to the interview, he’d like to direct something, do something with Barry Levinson [Bandits] again and work with Edward Norton, Mark Wahlberg, Ben Affleck, Nick Nolte, Tobey Maguire, Eddie Murphy and Tom Cruise.

"I have a couple scripts that I like," he says. "You have to find a story that you want to spend a year and a half, two years with. Because that’s about how long it takes for the whole process. But it doesn’t scare me anymore."

“Die Hard 4: Die Sucker Die”, heads into production shortly.
