Bruce Willis Is Down for 'Die Hard 5'

Yippeekayay…for a fifth time! Though diehard fans of, well, the Die Hard movie franchise, weren't all too crazy about the last installment (Live Free or Die Hard) and its lame story coupled with over-the-top special effects, that doesn't seem to be stopping Bruce Willis from looking forward to a fifth installment. In a conversation with MTV while out promoting his new comedy Cop Out, Willis claimed that they may shoot Die Hard 5 next year. When pressed for a possible storyline, he admitted that the only logical route would be that "it's got to go worldwide".

That's all there is right now; a bit of babble from Bruce Willis – no word on script or director, though Willis says that he'd "hire Len Wiseman right now" after being so pleased with the job Wiseman did on Live Free or Die Hard. (Eh, I thought Wiseman was too showy, but that's me.)
 
Personally (and here's how I feel about any Die Hard film), I think the franchise was at its best when Willis was trapped in a small place, fighting guys off with his fists, a few guns and whatever silly thing the maintenance man left around. Once you zoom out and feature Bruce Willis ducking as trucks flip over his head, all superhero-like, it loses its charm. We loved it when the character of John McClane was an everyman, but now he's become almost a caricature; an SNL parody.
 
Bring the franchise back down to earth and I'll watch it. What about you? Would you watch another Die Hard movie?
