It’s been eight years since A Good Day To Die Exhausting, the fifth outing within the Bruce Willis John McClane motion collection, was launched. And since then, there have been plans at Fox for a Die Exhausting 6 which was initially referred to as Die Exhausting: Yr One, earlier than being renamed McClane. The plan was for the sixth movie to be a hybrid prequel-sequel partly set within the NYPD cop’s early years throughout the Seventies with one other actor, and in addition in present-day with Willis.
However since Disney acquired Fox and rebranded their movie firm as twentieth Century Studios, Die Exhausting 6 has been cancelled.
Producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura broke the information to Polygon throughout press interviews for GI Joe film Snake Eyes.
He mentioned: “Yeah, no, It’s not occurring. However what was actually attention-grabbing was we really got here up with an concept to do it.
“It was a undertaking that wasn’t Die Exhausting that then, ultimately, shifted over to Die Exhausting.”
Lorenzo continued: “What was attention-grabbing about our concept was it allowed you the power to fulfill the younger John McClane and use Bruce.
“So it was actually attention-grabbing in that manner. So that you kind of acquired to see each variations of him. A bit [like The Godfather Part 2].”
On Disney, who at one level have been rumoured to be contemplating a McClane TV collection, he added: “I don’t know what their plans are.”
Contemplating Die Exhausting is a nicely established and much-loved franchise, little question the Home of Mouse will probably be planning on rebooting it sooner or later and even bringing again Willis for additional outings.
On the conclusion of the industrial, Argyle even mentioned ‘Yippee Ki-Yay!’, to which McClane replied: “Hey, that’s my line!”
Again in 2017, Specific.co.uk spoke with Jai Courtney, who performed McClane’s son in A Good Day To Die Exhausting.
Requested if he’d prefer to return for a Die Exhausting 6, The Suicide Squad Captain Boomerang star mentioned: “If that’s true, then positive. I really like that stuff. If I get the shout? Then yeah. I’m positive I’d.”
Many of the Die Exhausting films can be found to stream on Disney+.
