Lorenzo di Bonaventura is based at Paramount, but he came aboard Die Hard 6 because 20th Century Fox was interested in turning one of his other projects into a Die Hard movie. This actually mirrors the development of another Die Hard movie, 1995's Die Hard: With a Vengeance, which originated from a script by Jonathan Hensleigh entitled Simon Says, that was turned into a John McClane action-thriller. There was a rumor back in 2013 that this new sequel would be set in Tokyo, but it's clear that they're going in a different direction now.
Way back in 2010, Bruce Willis said he wants to "retire" his John McClane character after Die Hard 6, but it isn't known if this will actually be his final performance as McClane. It also isn't known if his A Good Day to Die Hard co-stars Mary Elizabeth Winstead and Jai Courtney, who played his children Lucy and Jack, will reprise their roles for Die Hard 6. Are you looking forward to John McClane's origin story being told in Die Hard 6?Read More
A Die Hard movie wouldn't be a Die Hard movie without Bruce Willis. That's why he'll still be involved in Die Hard 6, despite the fact that 20th Century Fox plans to make a prequel. How is this possible? Will Bruce Willis mo-cap a younger version of himself? Will he time travel? Nope, Fox has something much more simple planned.
Bruce Willis will only appear in Die Hard 6 as a cameo. He will bookend a story in present day, with most of the action taking place in 1979 New York City. A younger actor will be brought into establish a new version of the John McClane character, which will be set 10 years before the events of the original Die Hard. No specific details were given for the story at this time.Read More

The cast and crew of Lionsgate's sci-fi thriller Vice tell their favorite Bruce Willis stories from the set in our exclusive preview for the Blu-ray and DVD release on March 17.

Bruce Willis, Kristen Stewart and Jesse Eisenberg have signed on to star in an Untitled Woody Allen Comedy. As is the case with most Woody Allen movies, no plot details were given. As Deadline points out, Woody Allen is one of the few directors who doesn't show a script to the actors he's courting, since everybody wants to work with him if they are available.
The project will reunite Jesse Eisenberg and Kristen Stewart for the third time. They first starred in the 2009 comedy Adventureland together, and they will next be seen in American Ultra, which debuts later this year although a release date has not been given yet. Kristen Stewart and Jesse Eisenberg have never worked with Bruce Willis before, and this will also be Bruce Willis' first Woody Allen movie.Read More
Stephen King's 1987 novel Misery, which was adapted into the hit 1990 movie, will be turned into a new play, with Bruce Willis set to make his Broadway debut alongside theater favorite Elizabeth Marvel. Bruce Willis will play novelist Paul Sheldon, who is rescued from a car crash by a nurse named Annie Wilkes (Elizabeth Marvel), who just happens to be the author's biggest fan. Kathy Bates won an Oscar for her portrayal of Annie Wilkes in the feature adaptation, which also starred James Caan as Paul Sheldon.
William Goldman, who wrote the feature screenplay adaptation, is writing the script for this play, which will be directed by Will Frears. The director previously staged the world premiere of his Misery stage adaptation in 2012 at the Bucks County Playhouse. Johanna Day and Daniel Gerroll starred as Annie and Paul in that production.Read More
