File this one in the rumor pile for now, but Die Hard 5 may be going in front of cameras next year. According to Puerto Rico’s second-largest newspaper, Primera Hora [via Latino Review], the next chapter in John McClane’s endless saga of getting the shit kicked out of him will start shooting in Puerto Rico in 2011. The report also says that Die Hard 5 (which is just a working title) will also shoot in Los Angeles, New York, and Vancouver.
Die Hard 5 shooting next year wouldn’t be out of the blue. Back in May, we reported that Fox had brought on screenwriter Skip Woods (X-Men Origins: Wolverine) to write the script and in July, Bruce Willis said a greenlight on the film was imminent. Hit the jump for a recap on Willis’ other projects. [Update: We’ve spoken to 20th Century Fox and they have informed us that this rumor is false.]
Bruce Willis keeps busy and it will be interesting to see where he fits a blockbuster action flick like Die Hard 5 into his schedule. Along with Die Hard 5, he’s got the action flicks Kane & Lynch and Set Up. He’s also got the drama Ten, the indie thriller Violet & Daisy, Rian Johnson’s sci-fi flick Looper, and Wes Anderson’s next movie, Moon Rise Kingdom. And yet despite this busy schedule, I won’t be surprised if it’s confirmed that John McClane is set to ride again in 2011.
