Bruce Willis backs a Die Hard prequel saying ‘It’s a very good idea’. The star of the popular franchise Willis, who was an off-duty New York City Police Department officer John McClane also said he feels excitement for the making of the sixth movie, which is set to be an origin story. He is backing the idea considering the last ones had been very financially successful. It has also reportedly been hinted that the title would be ‘Die Hard: Year One’,
an origin story and even hinted that the plot will see the story flick between the past and the present.
”I’m very happy about it because it’s the origin story. It happens at the beginning and we’re going to bounce back and forth.”
The 60-year-old actor starred as troubled detective John McLane in all five ‘Die Hard’ films and is expected to reprise his role once again, although the sixth film will be set in New York City in 1979.
However, Bruce will play a present-day version of McClane and he denied having any knowledge of who will play his earlier self.
He told ET Online: ”We’re not there yet. Hopefully, he’s got a hard head”.
Willis was also seen in, Armageddon, The Sixth Sense and more.
