Bruce Willis Is Back as John McClane From the Past and Future

Hollywood has done it again. Failing to come up with an original idea, they’ve gone back to the money-making well known as Die Hard. At some point in the near future, Bruce Willis will star in Die Hard: Year One. Half the movie will be a prequel, following John McClane as a rookie cop, and the other half will be a sequel, following John McClane as a 60-year-old who should be a grandfather.

Casting is underway for the film. Jai Courtney played McClane’s son in A Good Day to Die Hard and Mary Elizabeth Winstead played his daughter in previous films. I assume both will be back in their roles for the present day shots of the movie. Unless they refuse to do an obvious cash grab movie. Who knows who will be cast for the prequel scenes or how they’ll make Bruce Willis appear 40 years younger.

Actually, that part is easy. Just put a wig on him.

Bonnie Bedelia played McClane’s estranged wife in the original Die Hard. If the timeline adds up, the two could be together when McClane was a rookie cop. Bringing Bedelia back would be a nice surprise for fans of the franchise, but I’m not holding my breath.

I just hope that the prequel part isn’t more action packed than the original movie. Part of the charm of Die Hard was a single cop managing to take out a group of German terrorists. If we find out that years earlier, the same cop took down the entire New York mob and a group of terrorists, all of a sudden McClane’s 1988 Christmas adventure doesn’t look so impressive. He’s a rookie cop. Just have him sit behind a desk and do a bunch of paperwork. That’s all rookie cops do 90 percent of the time anyway.

There’s no release date for Die Hard: Year One.

24 Actors Who Turned Down Iconic Roles

Can you imagine anyone other than Tom Hanks as Forest Gump? What about anyone besides Matthew Broderick as Ferris Bueller?

You won't believe what actors actually turned town those roles. In fact, we've got a list of 24 actors who passed on iconic roles -- sometimes for better, and sometimes for worse. 

Check them out below!

1. Michelle Pfeiffer, Silence of the Lambs

It's true. Maybe you can't imagine anyone other than Jodie Foster as Clarice in Silence of the Lambs, but Michelle Pfieffer was actually offered the role first. She turned it down because it was too violent.

2. Al Pacino, Star Wars

Are you sitting down? Because it's nearly impossible to imagine anyone other than Harrison Ford, but Al Pacino was actually offered the role of Han Solo on Star Wars.

3. Sarah Michelle Gellar, Clueless

That's right. Sarah Michelle Gellar passed on the role of Cher in the movie Clueless, which eventually went to Alicia Silverstone. Gellar focused on slaying vampires instead.

4. Leonardo DiCaprio, Boogie Nights

Leonardo DiCaprio probably made the right choice with this one. He turned down the role of Dirk Diggler on Boogie Nights so he could instead star in a little film called TITANIC.

5. Johnny Depp, Ferris Bueller's Day Off

Um, seriously? Try really hard to imagine Johnny Depp as Ferris Bueller, you guys. Doesn't work, does it? It's a good thing he turned down that role, because nobody other than Matthew Brokerick could be Ferris Bueller.

6. Lindsay Lohan, The Hangover

Who knows what might have happened if Lindsay Lohan hadn't turned down the role of Jade on The Hangover? Instead, that part went to Heather Graham.

Ben Affleck has one very specific regret when it comes to his past films. "The only movie I actually regret is Daredevil. It just kills me. I love that story, that character, and the fact that it got f***ed up the way it did stays with me," he said.

2. Katherine Heigl

Katherine Heigl wasn't exactly a big fan of her 2007 film, Knocked Up. She called it "a little sexist. It paints the women as shrews, as humorless and uptight, and it paints the men as lovable, goofy, fun-loving guys. It exaggerated the characters, and I had a hard time with it, on some days."

3. Jim Carrey

Jim Carrey regretted the 2010 film Kick-Ass because of the violence. Before the release of the film, he tweeted "I did Kickass a month b4 Sandy Hook and now in all good conscience I cannot support that level of violence."

4. George Clooney

George Clooney wasn't happy with Batman & Robin at all. He was quoted saying, “With hindsight, it’s easy to look back at this and go, ‘Woah, that was really ****, and I was really bad in it!'"

5. Robert Pattinson

Despite its popularity, there are certainly plenty of people who opening hate on the Twilight Series. One of those people? Robert Pattinson. He's hinted in several interviews at a dislike of the story and of his character, including saying that Twilight "seems like a book that wasn't supposed to be published."

6. Jessica Alba

Emma Heming Willis on Raising Kids with Bruce Willis: ‘We’re Having a Ball’

With two little ones — Mabel, 4, and Evelyn, 23 months — Emma Heming Willis and husband Bruce Willis have their hands full.

“We’re very busy around here,” Heming Willis tells PEOPLE.

And when it comes to raising their two girls and managing the couple’s work schedules, she says, it’s “definitely a balancing act.”

“I have a blog so I work from home. There’s other stuff that I’m doing, but I try and base everything from our house,” Heming Willis, 37, explains. “My husband’s the same. When he’s not working, we’re home.”

“We’re basically a stay-at-home family with the exception that we have to go into the city sometimes and do meetings and this, that and the other,” adds the Room to Grow ambassador, whose husband recently wrapped a run on Broadway in Misery. “So it’s a juggling act for the most part, but you just do it. You just make it work.”

And Heming Willis says their daughter Mabel’s most recent milestone has helped the Willis household out.

“She’s 4, so I just feel like we’ve come out of the twos and threes, which were lots of tantrums and what not,” explains Heming Willis. “She’s, I wouldn’t say starting to mellow out, but she definitely can express herself more so it definitely eases things up I think around here.”

Meanwhile, Evelyn is “starting to use the potty.”

“That’s a big thing for us at the moment,” the model-designer says. “I’m excited at the idea of moving away from diapers at some point.”

As for the best part about mommyhood for Heming Willis?

“There’s so many great things about motherhood,” she says. “It’s just taught me so much. It’s taught me so much about myself and just seeing that I have so much more patience than I actually ever could imagine.”

She continues: “You get to be a kid again, which is fun. We took the kids to Disney World just at the start of spring break — and my husband and I had just as much fun as the kids.”

Heming Willis admits her and her movie star husband are just “having a ball” with their baby girls.

“It’s a pleasure, but it’s hard as well,” she says. “But for the most part, more pleasure than pain definitely.”

Babes on Broadway! Bruce Willis Hangs with His Daughters at Misery Theatre

Playtime in the wings!

Actor Bruce Willis took some time between acts to hang out with his youngest daughters — Mabel Ray, 3, and Evelyn Penn, 20 months — at the New York City theatre where he’s starring in the Broadway adaptation Misery.

In a photo shared by Willis’ wife, Emma Heming-Willis, the actor sits with his girls as they enjoy a snack.

“#TheaterLife,” the 37-year-old mom of two captioned the cute candid.

The actor is starring alongside Roseanne alum Laurie Metcalf in the show, which plays eight times a week until Feb. 14.

The new stage version of Stephen King‘s novel was famously first made into the 1990 movie with James Caan and Kathy Bates — the role that earned her an Oscar.

Willis previously told PEOPLE he’s taking stage advice from his oldest child, daughter Rumer (who has also appeared in the Great White Way), for his turn on Broadway.

“She said to ‘go home and go to bed.’ You have to look after your voice,” said Willis.

Demi Moore Talks About Divorce From Bruce Willis!

Demi Moore and Bruce Willis‘ marriage seemed like years ago, but the effects are still felt.

They’ve divorced back in ’98, but any separation was bound to have its long-term impact on the kids, especially Rumer Willis.

“”When their father and I decided to divorce, it probably had the biggest impact on her,” Demi shares.

She continues, “There really wasn’t anything I could do to stop it. Her self-esteem was nothing. I could only just keep loving her and loving her until she could love herself,” referring to Rumer’s breakdown during her teens, which everyone scrutinized.

Fast forward to the present: the kids are now fine, and the parents are still friends, so we can say this is one amicable separation.
