Die Hard 4: During a recent interview with About.com, Bruce Willis proclaimed that a writer is hard at work on a script...

Rumors of a Die Hard 4 ranged from “It’ll never happen” to “Britney Spears will play John McClane’s daughter.” But now a screenwriter is at work on a script, and Bruce Willis himself explained why he chose to return to McClane for a fourth time.

“People wanted to see it,” Willis said. “People kept asking me about it.”

Willis said the project is still only in talks, and he’s having a hard time accepting a concept that would top the original trilogy. “We’re talking about it. We’re having a contest to come up with the ending. The problem is… I have no idea, what can we do? Have two planets crash into each other? Juggle an asteroid maybe?”

How about just fighting terrorists? We’ll see.
