“It is extremely faithful to the franchise and characters and is a natural progression. It’s also a very plausible storyline,” Trebilcook said.

“Getting Larry’s support was great, but there are many hurdles to leap yet and two of those are called Bruce Willis and [producer] Alex Young.

“[There’s] the possibility producers might go back and find some other source material to base the next one on, like they did with the first and second. Mine though, I feel it could be the Rocky Balboa of the Die Hard franchise.”

A Good Day to Die Hard has made $302,361,531 at the worldwide box office.
