ComingSoon.net has a piece of Bruce Willis quotage from an episode of Extra, and the always optimistic (yet aging) action star is still trying to breathe some life into Die Hard 4 — plus he has some nifty new ideas on how to do a 16 Blocks 2.
"Bruce Willis, interviewed on the set of his new movie Perfect Stranger with Halle Berry, said he can’t tell you what will come first: A sequel to 16 Blocks or a new Die Hard.
"They’re both being written. We’ve to throw a few more ‘old man’ jokes in the Die Hard script, while we do that…we might bring Jack Mosley back".
He was asked whether it’s true that Jessica Simpson auditioned for the role of his daughter in the Die Hard film. He laughed, saying, "Man, I don’t know even know if that character is even in this version of the script anymore. I can honestly tell you that Bonnie Bedelia and Reginald VelJohnson, from the first films, are the only guys we’ve talked about bringing back. There has to be enough room in the scene for my walking cane"."
I’m a big Bruce Willis fan, but I think if the guy still wants to bang out a half-decent Die Hard installment, he better get his butt in gear now. Heck, if Stallone can resurrect Rocky at 60 years of age, then Willis can bring back a 52-year-old John McClane. Right?
