Die Hard 6 to be titled McClane

In an interview for Empire Magazine, producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura made it clear Die Hard 6 is going the origin story route. Not only did the film get a new title, McClane, but there are more plot details. According to the report, the sequel/prequel features Willis as a 60-year-old McClane with a younger version of McClane in his 20s. It will be a more in-depth piece about the character. “You can tell our intention by the fact that the title page we handed in says, McClane,” said Lorenzo di Bonaventura.

Di Bonaventura added that “we want you to get invested in John McClane more than ever before.” He went on to add that there will be just as much screen time with young John McClane as there will be with older McClane. “I don’t know how you do Die Hard without Bruce,” he said.

Die Hard 6 finally gets its official title – McClane

  • HeyUGuys
There have been a few titles banded around for the next instalment of the franchise that refuses to die (hard). The day has finally come for an official title and it’s dubbed simple ‘McClane’.

The announcement came via producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura speaking to Empire. di Bonaventura stated;

“We want you to get invested in John McClane more than ever before. I don’t know how you do Die Hard without Bruce – the idea that he’s not very significant in this movie is not accurate at all. We are gonna explore John McClane in his twenties. But just as prominent is the 60-year-old version.”

The 6th instalment in the long-running saga is a prequel-sequel, flicking back and forth between Bruce Willis’s 60-year-old McClane and his younger self in his 20’s. 20-year-old McClane will be a regular cop in 1970s New York. Bruce Willis is also set to

See Sam Hunt Wander a Mexican Town in ‘Downtown’s Dead’ Video

See Sam Hunt Wander a Mexican Town in ‘Downtown’s Dead’ Video
Sam Hunt wanders the sleepy streets of Bernal, Mexico, in the new video for “Downtown’s Dead,” the moody follow-up single to his juggernaut “Body Like a Back Road.”

Filled with dusty scenes of a mostly empty town – including Bernal’s stunning cathedral – and Hunt drifting around on an old motorcycle, the clip captures the same aimless and untethered emotional space of the single. It’s all about a bar scene that no longer holds its charm – now that the woman who was once the life of Hunt’s parties isn’t around.

The Emmys are out there: ‘The X-Files’ 2018 campaigns David Duchovny, Gillian Anderson and which 3 guest stars?

The 2018 season of Fox’s “The X-Files” — the second of the revival and 11th overall — is staging a spooky Emmy campaign for five of its cast members. Leads David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson are of course back on the Emmy ballot as FBI Special Agents Fox Mulder and Dana Scully. Duchovny previously earned two nominations (1997-98) for the original run of “The X-Files,” while Anderson received four bids (1996-99) and won the 1998 Emmy for Best Drama Actress. This time around they’re joined by three of this season’s standout guest stars: Karin Konoval (“Plus One”), Haley Joel Osment (“Kitten”) and Fiona Vroom (“Nothing Lasts Forever”).

"The X-Files," Season 11, Episodes 9 & 10 Recap: Reason and Faith In Harmony

  • MUBI
X-Files Recap is a weekly column by Keith Uhlich covering Chris Carter's 10-episode continuation of the X-Files television series.Trust your instincts. I had a notion during the teaser sequence of “Nothing Lasts Forever” (episode 9 of The X-Files’ 11th season, written by Karen Nielsen and directed by James Wong) that it would be best recapped alongside “My Struggle IV” (the season, and possibly series finale, written and directed by Xf creator Chris Carter). Amid the sanguine, pre-opening credits hubbub—a pair of cannibalistic physicians harvest (and taste-sample) human organs, only to be interrupted by an avenging angel vigilante named Juliet Bocanegra (Carlena Britch)—there’s a fleeting audio clip on a car radio of Tad O’Malley (Joel McHale), the paranoid host of an Alex Jones-esque media pageant who was last seen in Season 10's "My Struggle II," bellowing about mind-altering gases and chem trails.

The X-Files Season 11 Finale Review: A Messy End To The Season (And Perhaps The Series)

Had The X-Files come to an end last week with ‘Nothing Lasts Forever’ it’s a good bet audiences would have been excited at the prospect of more, despite what would almost certainly be a Gillian Anderson-less season 12. However, the series still had a fourth installment in the ‘My Struggle’ storyline, which may put a damper on any anticipation for what might come next should Fox decide it wants to continue with the series.

The X-Files Season 11 Episode 9 Review – ‘Nothing Lasts Forever’

Matt Rodgers reviews the ninth episode of The X-Files season 11…

It goes without saying that this week’s episode of The X-Files should not be watched with your dinner, especially if you’re partial to a mixed grill.

Mulder and Scully have investigated cults before – ‘Red Museum’ (season 2 episode 10, ‘The Field Where I Died’ (season 4 episode 5) – but none quite as icky as the fountain of youth flesh-eaters found in “Nothing Lasts Forever”, a title that refers to the subject of the duo’s investigation, but also as a reminder to an audience who’ve been with them for eleven seasons, that this could very well be the end.

The entire gruey plot is a precursor to a Lost In Translation style whispered conversation between Mulder and Scully, which is as intriguing as it is frustrating. With only an hour left to go in this series, there had better be time

Did ‘The X-Files’ just set up Gillian Anderson’s exit with Scully’s ‘leap of faith’ whisper to Mulder?

Did ‘The X-Files’ just set up Gillian Anderson’s exit with Scully’s ‘leap of faith’ whisper to Mulder?
Did “The X-Files” just set up Gillian Anderson‘s exit from the show she’s starred on for 11 seasons as FBI Agent Dana Scully? At the end of Wednesday’s episode, titled “Nothing Lasts Forever,” Scully whispered something to David Duchovny‘s Fox Mulder while praying in a church. “That’s my leap of faith forward,” she told him after whispering the ominous comment into his ear. “And I’d like to do it together.”

Mulder at first appeared caught off-guard by her words, then finally replied, “I’ve always wondered how this was gonna end.” As “Nothing Lasts Forever” was the last episode before next week’s Season 11 finale, it only makes sense that whatever Scully whispered to Mulder will be important to Scully’s endgame on the long-running series.

What Did Scully Whisper to Mulder on The X-Files?

What Did Scully Whisper to Mulder on The X-Files?
The X-Files just added another mystery to the pile. In "Nothing Lasts Forever," the penultimate episode of The X-Files season 11, Mulder (David Duchovny) and Scully (Gillian Anderson) had a deeply personal conversation about where they stand, mainly in each other's lives. At one point Scully leans in and whispers in Mulder's ear. "I don't know if any God is listening, but I am standing right here," Mulder told Scully. "And I am listening. Right beside you, all ears. That's my choice." Then she whispered in his ear, pulled away and said, "That's not my four-year-old self looking for a miracle," she said. "That's my leap of faith forward. And I'd like to do...

Get the barf bucket ready. The second-to-last episode of The X-Files' 11th season may have been the goriest of the year, maybe even of the past two decades.

‘The X-Files’ Review: The Grossest Episode of Season 11 Reminds Us That ‘Nothing Lasts Forever’
[Editor’s note: Spoilers for “The X-Files” Season 11 Episode 9, “Nothing Lasts Forever,” follow.]

Previously, on “The X-Files”…

Agents Mulder (David Duchovny) and Scully (Gillian Anderson) solve weird crimes for the FBI, and a big part of their partnership is that Scully believes in God (and is a practicing Catholic). Meanwhile, Mulder believes in aliens, Scully, and not much else.

This Week’s Dossier

Somebody’s harvesting organs for non-organ-donation purposes, and Mulder and Scully are on the case to figure out why — but there’s really not much mystery to it after we get introduced to the wacky cult created by former film and TV star Barbara Beaumont (Fiona Vroom, whose goofy performance is one of the episode’s biggest positives), who is working with Dr. Luvenis (Jere Burns) to use the organs of their cult underlings to give themselves eternal beauty and life. (And hey, it seems to be working, given that Barbara’s in her 70s and Dr.

Need to catch up? Check out the previous X-Files recap here.

This week’s X-Files — the last before the season (and probably series) finale — is simultaneously what I love and loathe about this show.

Let’s start with the loathe. The episode felt a lot like it could’ve run in the original seasons… like in Season 9, like “Sunshine Days.” (For those who haven’t watched since way back, that’s not a good thing.) It spends a whole lotta time hanging out with a kinda-creepy cult and not enough time with our favorite agents. And when we do get

10 Die Hard Facts You Never Knew

10 Die Hard Facts You Never Knew
Yippee Ki-Yay, Christmas movie fans! Die Hard might just be the greatest action film ever made. It's endlessly quotable, made a huge movie star out of Bruce Willis, features one of the penultimate performances from the late Alan Rickman, and launched not only a franchise, but a slew of imitators, as well. Welcome to the party, pal! Here we look at 10 things you never knew about Die Hard.

Frank Sinatra could have been John McClane.

Ol' Blue Eyes had first dibs on the role that made Bruce Willis an action star. Die Hard is based on the 1979 crime novel Nothing Lasts Forever, which was a sequel to the 1966 book The Detective. The famous crooner turned actor starred in the 1968 film adaptation of The Detective and was therefore offered the chance to reprise the role of John McClane in the follow-up. Of course, Sinatra was already 73 by then, and said no.

Fox Stock Slips 4 Percent on Morning Ahead of Anticipated Disney Takeover
Nothing lasts forever — not even the stock bump from one of Hollywood’s premier studios looking to buy you out.

Still, it’s been a good run for Fox shareholders, with its stock jumping from about $25 a share in early November — when the Disney rumors first started swirling — to about $33 a share on Wednesday morning.
