@BrianWCollins@_RyanTurek All I know is that writers are being asked to come up with a take that involves bringing back Zeus.

Back in October 2010, we reported that Bruce Willis plans to retire his iconic John McClane character after Die Hard 6. Then in February 2013, just before A Good Day to Die Hard was released, the actor confirmed that the project is still moving forward. The last we heard about the sequel was in April 2013, when little-known writer Ben Trebilcook »
The Die Hard franchise has run its course. Let's get that straight. However, if Fox feels it absolutely must continue then I guess I can throw my support behind a Die Hard 6 if this new rumor is indeed true. Reported by Latino-Review.com correspondent, El Mayimbe, the scooper says Fox is meeting writers for takes on Die Hard 6, the catch is it must involve not only Bruce Willis's John McClane, but it must also include Samuel L. Jackson's Zeus Carver character from 1995's Die Hard: With a Vengeance, which was directed by John McTiernan back in 1995. https://twitter.com/elmayimbe/statuses/455852596751007744 Shortly after the release of the awful fifth installment, A Good Day to Die Hard, Fox reportedly began moving on a sixth film, which was said to be an earlier draft of Ben Trebilcook's treatment for what would have been Die Hard 4 before it became 2007's Live Free or Die Hard. »

The project is based on Navy Seal Chris Kyle's memoir, which he co-wrote with Scott McEwen and Jim DeFelice. The soldier was known as the deadliest American sniper in military history and nicknamed The Devil by enemies and fellow service members. He had 150 confirmed kills between 1999 and 2009.
Bradley Cooper will be portraying Chris Kyle with Sienna Miller playing his wife. Jake McDorman will take on the role of Ryan 'Biggles' Job, who was the expert sniper's comrade during his time in the military. Several real Navy Seals are also expected to co-star in the film, including Kevin 'Dauber' Lacz. The Seal was a close friend of the sniper.
After toplining The CW’s tenacious action thriller Nikita for four low-rated seasons, it appears that Maggie Q has landed her next television gig, with news today that The Following creator Kevin Williamson has signed her for a leading role in his still-untitled stalker pilot at CBS.
Q, who also co-starred in Live Free or Die Hard and has a major role in this week’s Divergent, will star in the pilot alongside American Horror Story alum Dylan McDermott, whose involvement was concerned back in February. The actress will play Detective Beth Davis, the “opinionated and obsessive, workaholic division captain of Lapd’s Threat Assessment Unit,” according to Deadline. The show, which CBS is aiming to pick up for premiere during the 2014-15 fall season, will also use narration from Q’s character.
Meanwhile, McDermott is set to play Detective Jack Larsen, a recent addition to the Tau from New York. »

Q, who leads as the title role in Nikita, is also known for her role in J.J. Abrams’ Mission Impossible III, in which she starred alongside Tom Cruise and in Live Free or Die Hard with Bruce Willis.

A user over at weibo, HarryHuo, did some sleuthing and came back with a few pictures from the toy packaging for the Dinobots featured in Transformers: Age of Extinction. This is the time of year when toys are going to spoil/reveal many of the designs from upcoming blockbusters, and this is further proof of that.
The artwork on the Transformers: Age of Extinction toy package reveals several of the bots in their dinosaur forms, such as the Tyrannosaurus, Triceratops, Velociraptor, Pterodactyl, and more. Have a gander!
I know nothing about Transformers stuff. Never followed any incarnation of the cartoon, and I only checked out the first movie because my girl at the time wanted to sneak in to a showing of it across the hall, after we’d seen Live Free or Die Hard. So you guys tell me, how do these dinobots look? Are they faithful? Are they cool? »
