Willis Wants ‘Unbreakable 2’ and ‘Die Hard 5’ and Wesley Snipes Wants ‘Blade 4’

Wills is Open to Die Hard 5 and Unbreakable 2: In a pair of interview quotes Bruce Willis talks about the possibility of Unbreakable 2 and seems quite confident there will be a Die Hard 5.

As for Unbreakable 2 he says, “I talked to [M. Night Shyamalan] over the holidays, and he is still thinking about doing the fight movie between me and Sam [Jackson] that we were gonna do [with the first movie, but] we chose to do the origin.” Willis says he’s up for it if Jackson is.

The Die Hard 5 info sounds more probable (video to the right) with Willis saying explicitly, “I think we’re going to do a Die Hard 5 next year.” As the Die Hard story has expanded over the years, going from a skyscraper, to an airport, to New York City and finally to the whole of the United States in Live Free or Die Hard, Willis says the fifth one would go even further saying “it’s got to go worldwide.” On top of that he also adds he would ask back Live Free or Die Hard director Len Wiseman for the job.

Shane Black Directing Doc Savage: Considering Shane Black brought his own pulp novel hero to life, Jonny Gossamer in Kiss Kiss, Bang Bang, I guess it’s only appropriate he take aim at a real one.
