>I’m told that Wiseman and di Bonaventura are now looking for a screenwriter to script a reinvention of the venerable action series, one that is sort of a prequel while still leaving room for Willis to play McClane as well. Basically, he’ll bookend a story line that will be set much of the action in 1979, when McClane was a cop in gritty New York City and showing how he became a die hard kind of guy.

The first Die Hard was good because the main character was a normal guy. A prequel that shows him doing cool action stuff in the past will retroactively ruin the first film.

I'd rate 3 higher (9.1) and 4 lower (7.5), but otherwise agree

it's hard not to see 1 with nostalgia goggles and gonna have to word what >>61768889 said about 2, it isn't that spectacular of a movie but it is classic die hard
>>
i don't understand how involving brucey in that concept makes any sense, but i also don't care because mctiernan isn't involved

they could do a "how i met your grandmother" story in a story
https://youtu.be/8AhpAzYogOs?t=42s

then it'd pretty much be a late 70s straight cop-drama but with Brucey bookends. it could be not terrible if they have fun with it. also, pleb-tier opinion probably, but I like hyper-reality stories in a story so it could be a bedtime story but told by john "yippee ki-yay motherfucker" mcclane where 4th wall breaks grounded by grandkid and action sequences can go over the top but with a solid reasoning (princess bride meets guy we knew at beginning of die hard 1 with shirley [i think that was her name] as the love interest)
