Washington: Bruce Willis is once again reprising his role as the indefatigable New York cop John McClane in a fifth instalment of ‘Die Hard’ movie.
The forthcoming movie, planned for release on Valentine’s Day 2013, will see McClane face his toughest challenge yet.
Directed by Max Payne’s John Moore, Die Hard 5 is expected to begin filming in Russia in January next year.
“Since the first Die Hard in 1988, John MCClane has found himself in the wrong place at the wrong time, with the skills and attitude to always be the last man standing, making him enemy number one for terrorists the world over,” Contactmusic quoted 20th Century Fox as saying in a statement.
The movie will follow McClane and his son as they become involved in a prison escape.
The fifth film looks to feature John’s sternest challenge yet, with the statement noting, “when his estranged son Jack is caught up in the daring prison escape of a rogue Russian leader, and father and son MCClane must work together to keep each other alive and keep the world safe for democracy”.
The action franchise has grossed over 1 billion dollars in total, with ‘Live Free or Die Hard’ taking over 300 million dollars at the Box Office.
