Samuel L Jackson may be joining Bruce Willis for new ‘Die Hard’ film
Bruce Willis will be back as John McClane for atleast one more adventure as rumors are that Fox is considering a story which would re-team Willis with Samuel L. Jackson. The pair starred in 1995’s “Die Hard With a Vengeance” and may be reunited in “Die Hard 6.”
After two recent outings, it appears there is yet another Die Hard film in the works and it will be reuniting the on-screen duo the franchise has seen.

Early plot details have McClane heading to Japan to be honored on the anniversary of the heroics from the first film.
“I can say that McClane is invited to Tokyo by the Nakatomi Corporation to be commended for his bravery and efforts in saving 36 lives, celebrating this on the 30th anniversary of the Nakatomi Hostage Crisis,” screenwriter Ben Trebilcook told What Culture.
“It’s by no means Black Rain, perhaps has a slight Rising Sun type tone. It’s also not a double-act buddy-buddy story. McClane began on his own and should end on his own. Of course he’s had assistance in various guises, aiding him in his ventures; but it’s not Lethal Weapon or a Jackie Chan film.”
The writer added that he wants to go back to basisc, so Jackson’s inclusion could be an interesting puzzle piece to pull the whole franchise together.
