Three years removed from what was arguably John McClane's most successful mission, "Live Free or Die Hard" star Bruce Willis is eager to fire up the magic factory of a fifth installment of the 22-year-old franchise.

"I think we're going to do a 'Die Hard 5' next year," Willis told MTV while doing press for his upcoming buddy comedy "Cop Out," co-starring Tracy Morgan.

"I would hire Len Wiseman (director of "Live Free or Die Hard") right now," said Willis.

And who can blame him. Wiseman managed to give "Live Free" a tongue-in-cheek comic book flair that freed the series from a bogus gravitas and allowed McClane to be the B-movie hero he truly is.
