Die Hard, once again, returns with a vengeance it seems. 62-year-old lead star Bruce Willis revealed that a 6th install of the hit action movie is in the pipeline, as he appeared on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, with a broken arm.
Willis discussed a range of topics, including his broken arm, which featured in a sling, and going “full beserker” in his new feature action “Death Wish”. Bruce paid tribute to arguably his most infamous role, in what is the 30 year anniversary of Die Hard.
That’s right. The original Die Hard is 30 years old. THIRTY. If that doesn’t depress you and force you into some form of mid-life crisis, then I don’t know what will.
Bruce was asked if he expected the global success of Die Had over the years:
“No. There was a slow start on that one, but then it arc’d.”
He was then asked about the Die Hard 6 rumours:
“I’m about to wing out to California to start to see what the script looks like. So I think it will happen. Yeah.”
Bruce, who was a fair bit quieter than usual, discussed the franchise and its success. Some have debated whether he was on painkillers during the interview, for his broken arm.
Last Christmas saw the age old debate surrounding if Die Hard is actually a Christmas film or not, surface once again. I feel there is no doubting this. He kills, and dresses a terrorist in a Santa costume. Nothing promotes the season of good will more than that.
A screenwriter of the film, Steven E. de Souza, has taken charge of the debate to clarify that Die Hard is in fact a Christmas film.
Another fan has commented that they’d never seen if his, or other screenwriter Jeb Stuart put to bed whether or not it is in fact a Christmas flick. De Souza responded.

“Yes, because the studio rejected the Purim draft”
He also confirmed.
He even followed it up with #DieHardIsAChristmasMovie hashtag.
Looks like the case is closed, and the hit is finally able to be categorised as a festive flick.
The last instalment of the Die Hard collection was released back in 2013, “A Good Day To Die Hard”, with the film receiving both positive and negative feedback.
“Die Hard Year One” – which is reported to be the title ofr the new blockbuster – features on Bruce Willis’ IMDB page as simply “rumoured”.
Bruce commented on his new release, “Death Story”:
“My family gets taken away from me. I’m a doctor and I save people’s lives, but what happens to my family causes me to take a different path. I go nuts.”
Bruce’s character is nicknamed “The Grim Reaper”, and his actually based on a novel by Brian Garfield, and is directed by Eli Roth, and is set to bring the miserably powerful tough guy Willis we all know and love, back to our screens.
It seems that Willis may be mellowing in old age however. News broke recently that the 61 year old is downsizing on his current home. His two floored appartment home, in an extremely sought after location facing Central Park, is on the market for a staggering $17.75million.
He and formed model wife Emma Heming have instead signed contracts on a sleeker, top floor condo, which was last listed at $7.9million.
The new space has just the four bedrooms, with four bathrooms, with 3,055 square feet of space. Not too shabby.
Willis has sold most of his west coast properties in the last few years. He unloaded a Beverley Hills mansion for $16.5million, and sold another property in the area for a cool $6million.
