â€˜â€™Heâ€™s Just Not That Into Youâ€™â€™â€™s Justin Long tells Moviehole that although heâ€™s just about ready to say goodbye to the young underachiever roles that have paid his mortgage for the last ten years (â€˜â€™Itâ€™s hard to keep playing teenagers when youâ€™re hair line is receding as much as mine isâ€™â€™, the actor laughs), he wouldnâ€™t mind another crack at thwarting terrorists with John McClane again.
Long, in Australia to promote the new rom-com with co-star Ginnifer Goodwin, says heâ€™d love to be a part of the new film.
â€œIâ€™m in!â€, Long says.
Upon being informed that â€œLive Free or Die Hardâ€ co-star Mary Elizabeth Winstead is also keen to come back for another sequel â€“ and would love Long to join her â€“ the actor reaffirms his interest.
â€œMary, if youâ€™re reading this â€“ Iâ€™ll do it. Iâ€™m definitely inâ€.
Long played computer-hacker Matt Farrell, who assists officer McClane, in the 2007 hit. Winstead played McClane’s daughter, Lucy.
Though thereâ€™s no script, Twentieth Century Fox are no doubt toying with the idea of a â€œDie Hard 5â€ â€“ especially considering how much money the last flick made! â€“ and star Bruce Willis has let it be known that heâ€™s not ready to disarm McClaneâ€™s holster just yet.
