“Conjuring” Scribes Re-Writing “Die Hard 6”

“The Conjuring” and “House of Wax” scribes Chad and Carey Hayes have been hired to pen a rewrite of the script for the next “Die Hard” film at 20th Century Fox reports The Tracking Board.

Len Wiseman, who helmed the fourth film, is set to return as both director and producer on the film with Bruce Willis once again playing John McClane. The movie is rumored to be an origin story cutting between current day McClane and a younger version working as a regular cop in 1970s New York.

Lorenzo di Bonaventura is producing the film dubbed “Die Hard: Year One” by insiders, a reference to Frank Miller’s beloved comic book “Batman: Year One”.
