‘Die Hard 6′ to Reunite Bruce Willis and Samuel L. Jackson?
Let’s be honest: the last two ‘Die Hard’ movies were almost unwatchable. There’s little Fox could do to get us excited for a ‘Die Hard 6‘ at this point, but what little there is to do, they’re at least trying to do. Early reports suggest that Fox is working on a ‘Die Hard 6′ story that would reunite John McClane (Bruce Willis) and Zeus Carver (Samuel L. Jackson), the co-stars of the last good ‘Die Hard’ movie.
The news comes to us by way of Twitter, with a report that Fox is actively looking for ‘Die Hard 6′ pitches from writers and are only interested in ones that include reteaming McClane and Zeus.
TWITTER SCOOP: FOX is meeting writers for takes on next DIE HARD. It has to involve John McClane AND Samuel Jackson's Zeus Carver character!

Now, that’s far from a done deal. The script isn’t even written yet, nevermind any word on the interest of both Willis and Jackson to return for another ‘Die Hard’ installment (although, honestly, as much as we love both of these guys, they’ve both proven they’re not above taking a job just for the paycheck).
Considering ‘Die Hard With a Vengeance’ stands alongside the original ‘Die Hard’ as the only good entries in the series (don’t try to argue for Renny Harlin’s ‘Die Hard 2′), if Fox really wants to light a fire under what you’d have to consider a moribund franchise, this would be the way to do it. And, as we’ve noticed some mention on Twitter, why not bring back director John McTiernan who, not-so-coincidentally directed both of the good ‘Die Hard’ movies.
