Bruce Willis has signed on to reprise his role as police detective John McClane in the sixth movie of the “Die Hard” franchise.
Len Wiseman, who has signed on to direct the last installment of the series, said the newest film would depict McClane’s past and present as a cop, Deadline reported.
A part of the movie would show McClane as a young cop working in New York City in the 1970’s. Wiseman said they have started casting for the role of young McClane.
“The right casting for this role is crucial. Those bare feet have some very big shoes to fill,” Wiseman told Deadline, referring to Willis’ being barefoot in the first film in the series.
The other part of the movie would be set in the present with Willis reprising his role as McClane.
