Bruce Willis is a busy man at this year’s Comic-Con. In addition to stopping by The Expendables panel, he also talked to MTV about his upcoming projects, namely Die Hard 5 and the long-awaited sequel to M. Night Shyamalan’s last good movie, Unbreakable. The Unbreakable front, sadly, is bleak. Willis is eager to continue the story of David Dunn, the Philadelphia security guard who discovers his body is, well, unbreakable, but Shyamalan is a different story. According to Willis, “We’d have to hip-check Night [Shyamalan] into doing it.”

Willis was much more optimistic about Die Hard 5. Live Free or Die Hard grossed $383 million worldwide and became the most successful film in the franchise — it seemed only a matter of time before Willis’ John McClane, the everyman badass, would be back in theatres. Willis says the greenlight is “imminent… the coin is about to drop.” Yippee kay yay indeed.  Check out a clip of the Die Hard comments after the jump.

    Iwish Willis would be able to get Shymalan on board. I think Shymalan has a great story there and I'm anxious to see where it could go…

    DIE HARD WITH A VENGEANCE was the most successful movie, if you adjust for inflation. As well as being about 100 times better than LIVE FREE.

    Hans boobee, I'm your white knight. Nothing beats the original in my book. The second was a little lackluster. The third a bit too preachy. The fourth one was pretty fun for being pg-13 even though it kind of lost the feeling of being some what attached to reality.

    And WTF is shammy pants doing that's so important that he can't revisit one of his three best movies? Actually I am pretty ok with him not sullying a perfectly good movie by making an awful sequel given his recent string of dreck.

    John McClane is always welcomed, so I'm excited for Die Hard 5. I hope this time tough they'll bring some mean badass who's capable of matching Gruber from the first one. And no more PG-13 crap please!

    About Unbreakable 2, well, if The Last Airbender 2 doesn't happen I hope Shyamalan will give it some thinking and we'll end up seeing his whole super hero vision.

    You're joking, right?

    Dont let M.Night touch Ubreakable2, he will ruin the only other good thing he's ever done. Its over man..

  • Ringbearer1420

    Unbreakable is brilliant and does need a sequel. It's easily better than any x-men so I don't know why they'd be joking.

    Really have to disagree with you there. Vengeance was a huge disappointment mostly because the finale just fizzled, a huge sin when you factor in the strength of the conclusions in the first two. I found DH4 fun and very entertaining on multiple viewings even though, like many others, I found it felt separate from the other movies for various reasons.

    I'm certainly down for a sequel to the “new” Die Hard.

    M. Night made a moderately successful film in The Last Airbender despite the critical bomb and an appeal that is limited to fans who give it a chance. I'd like to see him tackle a couple more brilliant films — see Sixth Sense and Unbreakable, and for some, Signs — but I personally don't see Unbreakable 2 as a great choice. That movie is singular in its approach, but the intriguing parts about it don't seem very sustainable in sequel.

    No I'm not. Unbreakable is a story that could bear to have a sequel if an effective story can be written. Shymalan comes up with some pretty decent concepts, they just don't always turn out as well as they ” should”. Hell if Hancock can get a sequel Unbreakable can…

    Manoj N. Shyamalan has indeed had good times and bad times. I feel things can only get better for him now. About an Unbreakable II, if (like Nunegro says) a decent sequel can be written, I would definitely say that they should go for it. It was one of the few movies in which Bruce Willis truly tried to move far away from his action hero image and did something unexpected…he underplayed his role in Unbreakable (and The Sixth Sense, for that matter) almost to perfection, and Samuel Jackson was a perfect foil as the crazy yet (almost) endearing villain.
