It has been announced that Bruce Willis will return for his role as John McClane in the fifth Die Hard film.
The movie does not have a director yet, but sources say the plot will revolve arround McClane and his son going to Russia for an important mission.
Director Justin Lin was approached by studio execs on making the film, but he declined, saying:
“For many of the projects, I feel very privileged, but I just know it wasn’t the right situation. And the first Die Hard changed me as a kid when I watched it. But Die Hard 5 is just not something that I’m going to do, or I’m interested in.” Lin is also set to direct Arnold Schwarzenegger in the next Terminator film.
Die Hard 5 is tentatively scheduled for a 2012 release.
