John McClane will be returning to movie screens, complete with two people playing him.

What’s that?

Well, Bruce Willis will return to the role that made him a bona fide action hero, playing McClane in the present day. Meanwhile [insert actor here – as he hasn’t been cast yet] will play young McClane in his 1970s New York cop days.

Yep, it’s a sequel and a prequel!

Len Wiseman, who directed the fourth Die Hard flick, Die Hard 4.0 (or as most of the world knows it, Live Free or Die Hard), is in place to helm this one. In regards to finding a young McClane, Wiseman told Deadline, “The right casting for this role is crucial. Those bare feet have some very big shoes to fill.”

While we wait for more news, have some classic, best-Chrissie-flick-ever Die Hard, via a hilarious – and appropriately reverant – Honest Trailer…

Ah McClane, you’ve done it again, and again, and again, and again, and again… Grab a hold of all the Die Hard action there is at JB Hi-Fi.
