John McClane set for a return?

Bruce Willis says he wants to start work on a fifth Die Hard movie next year.

The actor wants to play maverick cop John McClane once more, and hopes production on another instalment of the action series can begin in 2011.

He told MTV News: “It’s probably going to happen next year. We have a script. They’re making a couple changes right now.”

It’s believed that Skip Woods, the writer of X-Men Origins: Wolverine, is working on the script.

Willis first played the character in 1988, and took on the role as recently as 2007 in Die Hard 4.0.

Meanwhile, the actor is next set to appear in Red, which opens worldwide on October 15.
