Die Hard actor Bruce Willis is set to appear on the big screen as John McClane for the fifth time when A Good Day to Die Hard is released next year and Bruce has been discussing the risks that were involved in making the movie. The movie sees McClane team up with his son and Bruce admits that his age was a major stumbling block in the movie.
Willis told The Huffington Post, “The risk is more [with A Good Day to Die Hard]… I guess it's a personal challenge. There are gaps of time between each movie. It's a kind of ageist tryptic: 'Oh, OK, now I'm this age', and trying to tell that action movie, Die Hard theme -- but I'm a little older.”
He went on, “[I think to myself] 'How fast can I run? How well can I fight?' So that's a challenge and, you know, it's a fun thing to do. There's a story, if you look at all of them from the first film to the one we just did. And you see me age over these films - that has its own interest to me.”
As well as Bruce Willis, A Good Day to Die Hard also stars Jai Courtney, Cole Hauser, Sebastian Koch and Yuliya Snigir. A Good Day to Die Hard is set to be released in both the US and the UK on February 14, 2013.
