20th Century Fox does not intend to abandon its plans to further develop the Die Hard franchise. According to Deadline, the possibility of creating a prequel to the original movie is being considered as one of the options.
The project is curated by producer Lorenzo Di Bonaventura, and Len Wiseman is listed as the director. The movie is expected to take place in the late 70s of the last century, when the main character, John McClain, was still serving in the New York City Police Department. It is likely that the plot will be based on a graphic novel entitled Die Hard: Year One, which was published in 2009-2010. In these comics, as in the original movie, the brave police officer had to fight terrorists, including during the famous New York "blackout" in 1977.
Does this mean that 20th Century Fox has completely abandoned the idea of movieing a sequel called Die Hard 6, which was supposed to return the hero Samuel L. Jackson, is still unknown. Representatives of the company do not comment on this information.
Recall that the fifth movie in this series was very coldly received at home, where it earned just over $ 60 million. His worldwide gross has reached $ 300 million.
