Die Hard 6 Will Be Die Hardest If One Brit Writer Gets His Way

live free or die hard

In a turn of events not too dissimilar to recent Roger Rabbit shenanigans, the British screenwriter Ben Trebilcook has told Total Film that he’s cooking up a treatment for a new Die Hard film.

I’ve got no idea if Trebilcook is getting any sort of recompense, but he’s apparently working under the auspices of Good Day To Die Hard “consulting producer” Larry D. Webster. Once the treatment is ready, it will have to pass muster with several other bodies, not least Bruce Willis, none of whom are at all involved as yet. Take that on board.

All that Trebilcook has revealed about his premise so far is that his story starts in New York but then moves on to Tokyo, where most of the action will take place.

Immediately my mind skipped to the Japanese characters in the first film… could there be a big, over-series tie-up in the works? Probably not. There’s probably not even a film in the works.

I wish Trebilcook the best of luck, but there’s a long way to go for Die Hardest yet. Indeed, I think it’s hugely unlikely this man will ever see a film in production, but nonetheless, we’ll keep you posted.
