Bruce Willis is making plans to return to the Die Hard franchise, confirming a fifth installment is in the works. The actor kick started his career as a big-screen action man playing New York cop John McClane in the 1988 blockbuster,
which spawned three follow-ups.
Now the 54 year old is under negotiations to reprise the role - and he's already campaigning for 2007's Live Free or Die Hard film-maker Len Wiseman to helm the next project.
He says, "I think we're going to do a Die Hard 5 next year. I would hire Len Wiseman right now (to direct)." Willis has even come up with ideas for a potential storyline: "It's got to go worldwide. That would be my contribution to it."
However, the veteran star admits he much prefers cop movies which mock the genre, adding, "I like so much more making fun of it, taking the p&*s out of it, not making it a big deal and not making the fact that I've acted in a lot of movies a big deal. It's all illusion, and it's all bulls#*t. It's a great job for me to have, but everything else you can set on fire. Making people laugh is the real deal."
