Bruce Willis says Die Hard 5 is shooting next year, hints at Unbreakable 2

There have been some good tidbits from the COP OUT junkets. We’ve already learned about Sean William Scott’s involvement with another American Pie movie. Yesterday, Bruce Willis “announced” that DIE HARD 5 will start shooting next year. When he said that, I thought for sure he was either joking or that someone from Fox would quickly release a statement saying Bruce was cuckoo. But then I thought; if you’re an executive at Fox and Bruce Willis said DH5 is starting next year, wouldn’t you go ahead and get things going, even if you didn’t know about it? So whether or not anyone else in the world knew that DH5 was starting next year, the fact that the one person in the world that needs to be on board is, in fact, on board basically means this thing is going to happen. But anyway, the man boldly declared “I think we’re going to do a Die Hard 5 next year”. So there you have it.
But he also mentioned that he’s had continued talks with Mr. Shyamalan about an UNBREAKABLE 2 and mentioned that if Samuel L. Jackson is on board, he is too. I thought UNBREAKABLE got a bad rap and was a better movie than what its domestic box office totals said. Personally, I’d like to see a sequel to either of these and if Bruce is up for it, they can make a Die Hard movie every year.
