This Year Will See the Release of Die Hard 6, Which Is the Sixth Installment in the Die Hard Franchise.
Celebrating its 30th anniversary this year, the action flick Die Hard was released. Even three decades after its release, John McClane's crazy night at Nakatomi Plaza is still considered one of the finest action movies ever made—and the film that began Bruce Willis' professional career. So it's only fitting that Die Hard 6 will be released 30 years after the first film.
After the previous five films, the most recent of which being 2013's A Good Day to Die Hard, there was a lot of speculation about a potential sequel. However, no movie company has been able to get the project off the ground. That was back in the day.
A number of recent interviews with Willis have revealed that the film is in the works, and director Len Wiseman has claimed that production would begin as soon as the screenplay is done, telling Slashfilm that the next Die Hard movie will “happen fairly soon.”
Die Hard 6 will not be produced, according to official sources.
Following the release of a brief film that seemed to foretell Bruce Willis‘ projected return to the Die Hard series in mid-October 2020, fans sat up and paid attention. Unfortunately, it was the lead-in to a battery advertisement with a Die Hard theme, which was, of all things, a disappointment.
In the intervening time, there have been a number of different reports, but producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura recently revealed that a planned sixth sequel, simply named McClane, has been delayed as a result of the Fox-Disney acquisition. Polygon was informed by Di Bonaventura that the project was “not going further” and that it was “dead in the water.”
Die Hard 6's storyline is revealed in more detail.
There is, however, hope for fans of the franchise who are hoping for something different in the series. He went on to say that he is unaware of any plans for a prospective sequel or prequel to Snake Eyes and that he has no information about them.
Even if Disney chooses to bring the series back, the producer has already disclosed his ideas for what would be the sixth instalment. “It provided you with the chance to meet a young John McClane and to utilise Bruce […] you got to see both sides of him,” says the director. The film's subject matter was also discussed openly by the producer, who said, “It wasn't a Die Hard movie at the time, but it evolved into a Die Hard movie later on.”
Die Hard 6 has a stellar ensemble cast.
When Die Hard 6, or McClane, was discussed publicly before being shelved, the only confirmed cast member who was expected to return was Bruce Willis, who played the present-day John McClane. Although it's possible that Bonnie Bedelia's ex-wife Holly may appear in the film, there's no guarantee that she'll return to reprise her role. Mary Elizabeth Winstead has shown an interest in reprising her role as Lucy, John, and Holly's daughter in the next film. However, since that Die Hard 6 is no longer in the works, fans of Willis, Winstead, and the other prospective cast members may divert their attention to the various projects in which they are now involved.
When will ‘Die Hard 6' be released on the big screen?
A date for the release of this film has not yet been established. It is still in the early stages of development, and we all know how long action films take to shoot and much longer to complete in post-production.
The present Coronavirus epidemic is not expected to aid in the advancement of the situation any time soon.
Following the release of A Good Day To Die Hard in theatres in 2013, Fox Studios started working on the sixth instalment, possibly in reaction to the film's poor critical reception at the time.
Since 2017, however, a Die Hard 6 film has been in the works, concentrating on both the young and adult John McClane, as well as bringing back his ex-wife Holly from the last film.
Response from the media and the general people
Despite the fact that the original Die Hard is widely regarded as one of the best action films of all time, the critical reception to the sequels has been mixed.
The first Die Hard earned a great deal of positive feedback. According to Pete Croatto of FilmCritic.com, the film is “a superb action movie in every aspect, the type of movie that will make your summer unforgettable.” “The film reflects the class of current action films and the criterion by which they must be assessed,” stated James Berardinelli of the film.
DeSson Howe, a critic for the Los Angeles Times, stated, “Willis has discovered just the vehicle to careen crazily into the congested L.A. motorway of Lethal Weapons and Beverly Hills Cops.” Additionally, Willis has been praised for being “ideal as the sarcastic John McClane” and for being “an terrific casting choice as a cynical action hero.” Several critics have praised Alan Rickman's depiction of villain Hans Gruber as “marvellous” and “a career-making performance.”
Gruber was also placed 46th on the villains' side of the American Film Institute's 100 Years…100 Heroes and Villains campaign. Die Hard was voted the best action picture of all time by Entertainment Weekly in the year 2007.
However, the first sequel, Die Hard 2, garnered generally excellent reviews, although fewer than for the first film. Despite awarding the original film just two stars, reviewer Roger Ebert awarded this picture three and a half stars and praised it as “terrific entertainment” in his review.
The picture, according to James Berardinelli, was “slightly confused but yet amusing.” “Die Hard 2 starts to wear thin, no matter how wonderfully crafted it is,” commented Peter Travers of the film.
