    This stops when we as a cinema going audience decides it stops....by not paying money to go see it.

    There needs to be a string of reboots and remakes that lose a ton of money before they back off

    ITV were always great doing this (And still heavily cut movies. Return of the King was on last night and there was a load cut)

    I think it was Yipee Ki Yay Mother Funster on ITV? and on Lethal Weapon: That's a real badge, I'm a real cop and this is a real firing gun.

    yeah now you mention it I remember watching T2 on ITV before and half the film was cut

    I can see it now, while it will still star the character of John McClane he will team up with a 12 year old girl who was there doing “science” or “computers” where she will save John on several occasion because he doesn’t know computers and she will even get the drop on Hans with her junior judo skills.
    Are Disney hiring?

    It makes no difference if you don't go, there's millions in their new biggest market China who love these crappy reboots

    They should get Steve Segal to play both John Mcclane and Hans Gruber..... and maybe Holly too... would be a bold and correct choice !

    I'm hoping that they're looking at this being something for Disney+ streaming. I wouldn't mind that. If they set it in the past & the kid grows up to be Bruce Willis over a number of seasons, but a straight reboot? No thanks.

    Lol.... Nice source.

    They need to bring back John McTiernan hes the only director who knows how to make a good Die Hard film.

    what can you expect from a pig but a grunt..

    hollywood has grown fat from the mindless churned out marvel and dc universe crap... it's realised that the masses are moronic and have no interest in stories or plots..

    No worse than any of the movies since 3

    With star character, Jenny maclain, formally john maclain!

    Only Joseph Gordon Levitt has my blessing to play John McClane.

    Some young buck with no forehead has no business being considered.

    we'll probably get someone like Zachary Levi, and they'll lean too hard into the comedy aspect of it.
    I cant think of who I'd go with though, it shouldnt be someone who's physically ripped, needs to be an ordinary guy who's a believable but likeable a-hole, Will Arnett maybe?

    Somehow you've managed to come up with an even worse idea than just a straight remake.

    I believe he is blacklisted in Hollywood these days. Did some time in prison for paying to have a movie producer's phone tapped illegally. The case dragged on for nearly a decade before he was convicted and he made a lot of enemies in that time. He hasn't directed a movie since 2006.
    It's a shame as Die Hard and Predator are two of my favourite movies and Die Hard 3 is brilliant too.


  • Registered Users Posts: 26,488 ✭✭✭✭ CastorTroy


    Ignoring the film itself for now, but what younger action stars do we have these days?
    Seems what few action movies we have are headlined by the likes of Dwayne Johnson, Tom Cruise, Vin Diesel

    I saw Jaws on ITV once. It's about some guys who go fishing and don't catch anything.

    Reboots.... film is as good as dead as far as ideas go.

    I vehemently disagree.

    If they do it that way we get to see the early John McClane and everything that got him to Nakatomi Tower.

    If they do it the other way we get watered down “hip” versions of the movies.

    A police procedural set in the 70s & 80s NYC could be brilliant & we still get to keep the classics as is.

    I know what I’d prefer.

    For the record - the Die Hard series is Die Hard 1-3 & 16 Blocks.

    Absolutely pointless reboot.

    One against many movies exist aplenty, so why bother branding it with the Die Hard name, I don't think it's going to boost profitability - Die Hard is what it is because Bruce Willis made it so, and even that star faded in later instalments, so don't see how a new face can bring it back.
