Total Film has some exclusive details on the sixth Die Hard installment, including the current title and screenwriter.
Die Hard 6 is currently being called Die Hardest.
The script (which is in the writing process) will be written by Ben Trebilcook, who is presently working on a video game-like action film Knockout, set to star real life martial artists.
Trebilcook told Total Film that his treatment is, “It is extremely faithful to the franchise and characters and is a natural progression. It’s also a very plausible storyline.”
Regarding plot details, Trebilcook said:
“[There's] the possibility producers might go back and find some other source material to base the next one on, like they did with the first and second. Mine though, I feel it could be the Rocky Balboa of the Die Hard franchise.”
His Twitter feed was buzzing today as fans tweeted (some menacingly) about their concerns that the next Die Hard would suck. One user hashtagged their tweet: #JohnMcClaneShouldFinallyDieHard
