You'll Never Believe How DIE HARD 24/7 Got Its Name...

Merrick here...
Last night, Harry posted a piece indicating that the long gestating DIE HARD 5 might be called DIE HARD 24/7 (HERE). This prompted a correspondence from an...established creative talent within the entertainment industry. Someone known to AICN, who could feasibly be known to you as well if you heard his/her name... someone who drops AICN a line from time to time to offer welcomed clarity on frustratingly vague newsbits. This time, she/he wanted to let us know how DIE HARD 24/7 got the name none of us seem to like. Ironically, what a few Talkbackers were joking about beneath Harry's article (linked above) turns out to be true. At one point, The Powers That Be at Fox mulled an idea - DIE HARD 5 and the TV show 24 were to cross over. The intent was for Kiefer Sutherland to appear as Jack Bauer in an adventure with Bruce Willis' John McClane. Hence...DIE HARD 24/7. Our dude/lady didn't know how much development was actually put into this notion, but she/he believes the project didn't pan out because Kiefer was more interested in launching his own 24 movie franchise (still said to be in the works) than doing buddy shtick in Bruce's already established series. Which leaves some questions. Are we just now getting wind of an older title that has since been abandoned? Did they keep the title because they thought it was good, but are using it for some entirely different DH sequel conceit? Or, if DIE HARD 24/7 is actually still in play as a title, is there still a specific reason for using it? I'll be the first to admit that, at face value, this notion sounds like the pitiful ranting of a wizzened fanboy. Again, though, this comes from a source we view as reasonably credible. Is there a margin for error? Absolutely, but not too likely in this case. Food for thought and fun to speculate about. So, let you imaginations run wild... We'll let you know if we hear anything else about this...

    I think Die Hard 4 killed the franchise. I don't think someone will actually step up and make a kickass Die Hard movie. just leave it alone. Unless they go The Expendibles route, it's just not going to be good. We don't want the A-Team from Die Hard. We want Die Hard.

And, to see him crowbarred into the Die Hard universe just because they're both under the Fox banner would have been fucking stupid.

    Nearly Impossible

    by Katet19

    It's nearly impossible to maintain the tone of the original (and best) Die Hard at a PG-13 level. Dark Knight, Batman Doesn't kill and doesn't need to be graphic with the on screen violence. Joker was unsettling and it created an air of viciousness but no more than any monthly comic book. The First Die Hard was tinged with a certain realism. remember cringing when he gets the glass embedded in his feet? or tensing up when he leaps from the building. Very real pain was inflicted on John McClane and he was a city detective in over his head dealing with highly trained ruthless people. There was no guarantee he wouldn't be grievously injured. Nakatomi's head being blown over the glass cemented the reality that these people would do ANYTHING to get what they wanted (R). You were stuck in Nakatomi plaza with him and felt like you could BE HIM. Flipping cars, driving them into helicopters, fighting Karate master super models etc is so far removed from an sort of reality it's laughable. He swears, he kills. I dont think it will ever recover. Let sleeping dogs lie.

  • June 9, 2010, 3:11 p.m. CST

    John McClane deserves better than this.

    by Doctor_Strangepork

    Sometimes the best way to honor the original film and restore the franchise to its former glory is to stop making shitty sequels. <br> <br> A fresh 2 disc blue ray edition with an in-depth doc reuniting the original cast would be a step in the right direction. Much better than Die Hard: 5 X 5 or whatever the marketing department shits out. <br> <br> Because these things always start out with the best of intentions (McClane/Jack Bauer crossover - even though it negates both men's One Man Against The World with Tech Support premise)and ends with Brett Ratner's Die Hard at Hardee's: Home of the Angus Beef. With Chris Tucker as Argyle Junior, McClane's new, wise-cracking sidekick.

    About Die Hard's realism...

    by rbatty024

    as with any action films, the realism is relative. The great thing about Die Hard wasn't that it exactly mimicked real life, but that compared to the overstuffed, cheesy action films of the eighties, Die Hard brought a sense of realism. McClane only kills a handful of guys, as opposed to the hundreds of men Schwarzenegger might go through in a single film. He also managed to look and act like he could get hurt at any moment. <p> Now, don't get me wrong, I love me some absurd eighties action films, but because of its relative realism, Die Hard makes an audience feel as if there is something at stake. Even if we know better, there is a part of us that thinks McClane could buy it at any time. They completely forgot this lesson for the last Die Hard and treated the character like a rubber doll.

    by dailysportspages

    Go back to being R rated, with Jacks kills becoming more hardcore on the big screen. <br> Have thee be a new president in office who wants to bring Jack to justice. <br> The president has made a backroom deal with Russia to allow Jack to be extradited to Moscow to stand trial for killing Russian diplomats. <br> The President of Russia is in the US to sign a new treaty to ally against Iran and to formally clear the Russian delegation of any wrongdoing in the death of President Slumdog. <br> In Jacks investigations overseas he learns that Russia is still bankrolling Iran through back channels and is even helping their nuclear program. The goal is to drop a nuke on Israel via flotilla. :) <br> Jack kidnaps the Russian president and holds him hostage. Demanding that he expose the Russian going ons with Iran. <br><br> And thats a job for John McClane. <br> Of course at the end John would realize that Jack is right and the Russians have to be stopped for the sake of the Jews. They control his movie career after all.

Asimov has his own agenda, targetting several high profile movie directors.<p>The scenes between Dioxholster and Asimov would consist of the two talking over one another about the only topics they're interested in (Stargate and bad JJ Abrams movies respectively), and never listening to anything that anyone else says.

With A Vengeance was a coup. Live Free or Die Hard is an awful, forced title. DIe Hard 24/7 is even worse. Do they honestly think they'll sell more tickets with a kitschy title? Unless they go all out, and personally, I would enjoy Die Hard All Over Your Face, or something like that, but honestly. How about DIe Hard V? Or, even wilder, just fucking call it Die Hard again.

    Hey, prosecutors, drop the case. Give me one reason why proving John McTiernan is not above the law is more important than a chance to have another good Die Hard movie. See, you can't, because there is no good reason. You're not prosecuting people who lied us into war and tortured and spied on people, guilty and innocent alike, but you are prosecuting whistleblowers who tried to show how the U.S. government was breaking the law during this so-called war on terror. So don't tell me you need to prosecute John McTiernan. John McTiernan needs to be making Die Hard, and you need to be going after the people who are actually destroying civilization.

    Die Hard Gotta Eat

    by Doctor_Strangepork

    I remember a billion years ago Bruce Willis talking about how he wanted the Die Hard movies to homage to 70's disaster movies. <br> <br> Die Hard would be/was The Towering Inferno <br> <br> Die Hard 2 would be/was The Airport movies <br> <br> Die Hard 3 would be The Poseidon Adventure. <br> <br> But then Under Siege beat them to the punch on the Poseidon Adventure thing and things just fell apart.

    Jack would own McClane!

    by MariusXe

    I mean, here we have a guy who tortures people for a living, is a great hand to hand combatant, a spy, skilled with every weapon that is out there, who cut some guys head off to show some other guy he means buisness and pulverizes kneecaps for fun! On the other hand we have McClane, who is a badass, who can shoot well, who can brawl a bit, who spends nearly half of his time in those movies bleeding to death. I can understand kiefer for turning that down. His character is so much better than the die hard series but his own name value would force him to play second fiddle to willis. Should not happen, as much as I would like to see a crossover, but Jack Bauer is too good a character to be wasted as a sidekick for the bruce.

    by Mr.Elias

    - because Bauer, and the 24 series (although pretty crazy sometimes) are rooted in some sort of harsh reality world, whereas the Die Hard series has more of a humorous action apporoach. Just cant see those two characters meeting up. It would be a shame for both franchises.

    The original Die Hard...

    by SK229

    is seriously an action movie masterpiece with pathos and one ridiculously fucking tight screenplay. It is a marvel of plot construction, direction, acting, casting, lighting, use of a location... it hits so hard on all cylinders that even 20+ years later it makes most of today's action movies look like they need a baby pacifier or should be shown on a double bill with an episode of Teletubbies. The sequels (even 4), to me, are above average action movies, but nowhere near the lightning in a bottle that was the original. Just leave it the fuck alone unless you're really going to try to come up with an airtight screenplay that somehow reinvigorates the genre (and I mean action movies, not just Die Hard) which I think could be done by going back to what made the original work. I think pure action movies that don't star comic book heros are not in a good spot right now and a lot of it has to do with the casting of namby pamby pretty boy actors, bad scripts, too much CG, crazy stunts rather than down-to-earth gritty action that HURTS. The casting is a result of an obsession with youth or, at the very least, actors that, while they're very talented, can never be more than a cipher for the audience (I'm thinking Jake Gyllenhal, even though I actually like him as an actor) rather than a whole person... an actor that give an iconic performance like Stallone, Willis, or Arnold.
