Live Free Or Die Hard‘s Len Wiseman is directing the next film – a prequel to the action series set in 1979, showing how cop John McClane learnt the ropes to become the hero you know and love.
According to Deadline, Bruce Willis is also back as McClane, while a different actor will play his younger version.
The film is still to find a screenwriter. Lorenzo di Bonaventura is producing.
The Die Hard franchise has made over $1.4 billion at the worldwide box office, since arriving on our screens with the original in 1988.
A Good Day To Die Hard, the last film in the series which came out in 2013, was hit with poor reviews. However, it still made $304.7 million globally.
