OK, without spoiling too much, I can say that McClane is invited to Tokyo by the Nakatomi Corporation to be commended for his bravery and efforts in saving 36 lives, celebrating this on the 30th anniversary of the Naktatomi Hostage Crisis. Itís by no means Black Rain. Perhaps has a slight Rising Sun type tone. Itís also not a double-act buddy-buddy story. McClane began on his own and should end on his own. Of course heís had assistance in various guises, aiding him in his ventures; but itís not Lethal Weapon or a Jackie Chan film.
so, in a ways full circle, but alone? no nods to past companions?
My story, being set in Japan, obviously has Nakatomi playing an extremely significant role; in a way that.. well, itís John McClane in Japan and if youíve seen any Japanese movies or at least know anything about their culture at all, you know it would have a lot of potential to be nuts. Itís not Ichi The Killer, but it is crazy and as real as you can get in these realms. Itís violent, but not over the top nor unnecessarily Loony Tune like Olympus. Itís well researched, faithful to the franchise, yet giving a possible audience such a refreshing punch to the face, theyíll be saying ĎWow. I really wasnít expecting that.í You want a nugget, donít you? Iím pretty sure itís out there. A few Japanese fans on Twitter put two and two together when I uploaded a picture of a Katana (Samurai Sword) with some kanji reading ĎZeusí. Yes, Iíve written Zeus Carver in for Samuel L Jackson.
it is supposedly the final Die Hard. you know, until it makes a ton of money and they make another one. Also, they talk about the TV series they were working on.
