20th Century Fox announced that they have hired Chad and Carey Hayes, the writers for The Conjuring and its sequel, to pen a new script for the upcoming Die Hard installment. The two brothers are set to rewrite the what had previously been delivered for the film.
Bruce Willis will once again return as John McClane, the terrorist fighting supercop from New York. Len Wiseman is set to produce and direct due to his work on Live Free or Die Hard being well received. Also producing is Lorenzo di Bonaventura.
The film is said to be an origin story of sorts, focusing on a younger McClane (played by a younger actor) as a cop in New York City during the 1970’s. Willis’ McClane is said to be featured at the end of the movie which will reportedly flip back and forth between the past and the present.
Sources say that the filmmakers are using Frank Miller’s Batman: Year One as a reference point for the as of yet untitled Die Hard film.
As of now, not much is known about the upcoming Die Hard installment and no release date has been set by the studio.

5 Actors Who Should Play Booster Gold In The DC Extended Universe
The DC Extended Universe may be full of heroes already, but it’s missing one key figure: Booster Gold.
Created in 1986, Michael Jon Carter is originally from the 25th century. An impoverished college football player from Gotham City, Carter eventually received a job at a 20th-century superhero museum. While working there, Carter became obsessed with the age of heroes and learned as much as he could. With the help of a security robot called Skeets, Carter stole key heroic artifacts and traveled back in-time to use his knowledge of the past to his advantage.
Not only does Carter want to be the best superhero in the world, he wants to make sure he’s never broke like he was in the past. So, unlike every other superhero out there, Booster Gold receives numerous corporate sponsorships he has to plug while fighting the bad guys. Typically seen as a laughing stock among the superhero community, Carter is actually a solid guy who does want to help people.
