Does this mean that the Die Hard franchise is dead???

So far, Bruce Willis made 5 “Die Hard” films in the franchise. A 6th Die Hard, it’s been trying to get into development for a long while and doing some reading on it, it’s still struggling to get made so it was dead anyways? I’m not sure what’s going on with “Die Hard 6” but the original idea was that Bruce wanted it to be the final one to close out that franchise. It’s looking like a cancelled project due to all the setbacks and due to the poor reviews Die Hard 5 got.

I saw all the Die Hard movies. Although, I would say that the first two were the best ones… yeah, I thought “Die Hard 2: Die Harder” was freakin’ awesome but the first one will always be a masterpiece. The first one was incredible, greatest action flick of all time… I did like “Die Hard 3: with a Vengeance” (the one he did with Sam Jackson).

I also remember seeing 4 and 5 in theater when they first came out and hated both of those. Probably ’cause of bad writing, too much CGI… I thought it was the CGI that ruined it.

Given with the latest news of Bruce about that disease, it’s looking like the Die Hard franchise is dead for good ’cause they can’t go on without John McClane.

I would have liked the last Die Hard movie to be an all-out violent action movie like the first two were and I want McClane swearing his head off.

I think they should kill this franchise but they probably won’t. If they reboot then that would be silly. Only Bruce as McClane is “Die Hard”, that role belongs to him and him only.

From what I read Disney owns the Die Hard franchise now since they own 20th Century Fox. I’m okay with a “spinoff” or a “prequel”, though, just don’t reboot it.

We’ll see what goes on.


Bruce Willis quitting acting due to getting diagnosed with aphasia… sucks but prayers to him…

More shocking news… it’s looking like iconic action star, Bruce Willis is getting forced to retire from acting due to getting diagnosed with aphasia. Aphasia is a condition that robs you the ability to communicate. Meaning you won’t be able to speak well and won’t be able to understand others.

I’m sure Bruce is fine now and “aphasia” is kind of starting to kick in a little bit but he’s probably gonna get way worse sometime later on. Some of you may ask, is “aphasia” treatable? For some you can recover from it but it’s mostly permanent from what I read so it’s looking like Bruce’s acting career is gonna be done for good.


While it’s sad news, Bruce had a great career run. The movie “Die Hard” was his breakthrough role, the very first one, the film that made him a box office megastar. He was an actor before that film ’cause he had several other film roles before that one and he got his start in the TV show “Moonlighting”.

After that film, he went on to star in even more box office blockbusters like “Look Who’s Talking”, “Hudson Hawk”, “Death Becomes Her”, “Pulp Fiction”, “Armageddon”, “The Sixth Sense”, “Unbreakable”, “12 Monkeys”, “The Fifth Element”, “The Last Boy Scout”, “The Jackal”, “Mercury Rising”, “Sin City”, “The Expendables” etc.

Over the past several years, it seems Bruce stopped doing blockbuster movies and just doing mostly straight to VOD movies ’cause he’s got a bunch of those too through Netflix and Hulu or where ever else you stream movies.

I’m sure he’s got more Straight to VOD movies coming even though he’s quitting and after they get released, that’s it.

Being an actor requires being able to speak and understand others so he can’t act if he’s gonna get this disease, ya know?

This sucks. Most Hollywood actors are terrible but there’s a few good movie stars left and Bruce is one of them. I’ve always been a fan of his. Speaking of Bruce, I’ve been re-watching a lot of his old movies lately. He’s a phenomenal talent too. He wasn’t just an action star, he tried every genre and was good at it.

This sucks but I wish him well. He was another actor who loved acting and saw it as a passion which is why he kept working film after film nonstop. Now it’s looking like he won’t be able to do it anymore.

Be well, McClane and prayers!


Cool Video: “A Good Day To Die Hard” trailer #2 makes me sold to the film now…

Man, I really hope this film doesn’t suck. The last film, “Live Free or Die Hard”, was one of the worst films I’ve ever seen, so I really hope they redeem themselves with this one. The thing with movies is, that all the trailers want to make the films look good, but when you go see the actual film itself, it turns out to be a bad film. Lets hope that’s not the case with this movie. “Good Day to Die Hard” does look like an action packed ride, though. I’m just skeptical of the plot. The plot might suck. There’s tons of movies out there with great action but terrible story. Lets hope the new Die Hard is a good one overall.


Report: “Die Hard 5” director found, Noam Murro will helm the next John McClane installment…

Deadline reports, that an unknown director, I’ve never heard of, Noam Murro, have been confirmed to direct, “Die Hard 5”. Of course, Bruce Willis will reprise his longtime role of John McClane. Noam Murro directed only one movie in his career, which is a comedy called, “Smart People” that starred, Dennis Quaid and Sarah Jessica Parker. Do you think Noam will have what it takes to direct an action film? The reason they hired him is because FOX were impressed with his work for the “Halo” video game, so they thought he would be a good fit for the next Die Hard flick.

See the report here, at Deadline.

Well, all the Die Hard movies had a mix of action and comedy. Even the first one had a lot of comical scenes in it. Hopefully the next Die Hard flick will be a Hard R. “Live Free or Die Hard” the 4th one wasn’t a bad movie, I liked it, but it didn’t feel like a Die Hard movie. Probably because the last one was PG-13, no swearing, not as violent, and no blood. The last Die Hard flick was a family friendly movie. Hope they go back to the roots where the next one feels like the first one.


Report: Bruce Willis still on for “Die Hard 5” and “Unbreakable 2″…

Bruce Willis spoke out saying that he is still committed to playing in “Die Hard 5” and the sequel to the 2000 released M. Night Syamalan movie, “Unbreakable”. Bruce says he wants Len Wiseman to return to direct “Die Hard 5”. Len Wiseman directed, “Live Free or Die Hard”. As for “Unbreakable”, a sequel was in the works since the 1st one ’cause the ending to that movie left open for another movie. Bruce says he will be willing to star in “Unbreakable 2” only if Samuel L. Jackson is willing to return as well.

Lets hope “Die Hard 5” will be a better movie, ’cause I hated “Live Free or Die Hard”. I think “Unbreakable 2” will be interesting ’cause I liked the first one a lot. I usually hate M. Night Shyamalan flicks, but the “Unbreakable” flick is the only good movie he did.
