Bruce Willis will return for a fifth Die Hard movie, it has been announced.

The latest installment in the long-running action franchise will be called A Good Day To Die Hard, and released on February 14, 2013. The Valentine’s Day release will be directed by John Moore, from a script by Skip Woods.

Willis will return to the role of John McClane, this time in a plot involving his son.

20th Century Fox said in a statement: “Since the first Die Hard in 1988, John McClane has found himself in the wrong place at the wrong time, with the skills and attitude to always be the last man standing, making him enemy number one for terrorists the world over.”

It continued: “Now, McClane faces his greatest challenge ever, this time on an international stage, when his estranged son Jack is caught up in the daring prison escape of a rogue Russian leader, and father and son McClane must work together to keep each other alive and keep the world safe for democracy.”
