Yippee-ki-yay! Another 'Die Hard' movie on the way

Diehard
Bruce Willis
might have to break out the badge and banter again. Film execs are ready to make a new installment of Die Hard. "Come out to Hollywood, John McClane. We'll get together, have a few laughs..."

The Hollywood Reporter says screenwriter Skip Woods (Hitman) is in talks with Fox over a new script. And why not? The last sequel, 2007's Live Free or Die Hard grossed $378 million worldwide, "20 years after first pitching Hans Gruber out a broken window at Fox towers," the paper says.

There's no word yet on the new story line and no word on whether Willis is even interested. You better be, Bruce. I get the feeling that made-for-TV sequel for Moonlighting ain't coming anytime soon.

Still, the key to casting any Die Hard movie isn't getting Bruce's buy-in. It's finding the right villain. (Loved Alan Rickman as Hans Gruber! Wasn't impressed by Jeremy Irons as his vengeful brother.)

Hans gruber TOP 5 HANS GRUBER LINES FROM DIE-HARD:

5. "You know my name but who are you? Just another American who saw too many movies as a child? Another orphan of a bankrupt culture who thinks he's John Wayne? Rambo? Marshal Dillon?"

4. "Nice suit. John Phillips, London. I have two myself. Rumor has it Arafat buys his there."

3. "I wanted this to be professional, efficient, adult, cooperative. Not a lot to ask. Alas, your Mr. Takagi did not see it that way... so he won't be joining us for the rest of his life."

2. " 'And when Alexander saw the breadth of his domain, he wept, for there were no more worlds to conquer.' Benefits of a classical education."

1. "Now I have a machine gun. Ho ho ho."

(Yeah, sure, it's a line that McClane wrote. But it's Gruber's delivery that makes it, dare i say, classic.)
