One main issue that seemingly curbed “Die Hard 6” was Disney’s acquisition of Fox in 2019. Even earlier than the large, multi-billion-dollar deal was finalized, executives had been being extra selective about what they had been giving the inexperienced mild to. In the aftermath of the deal, Disney was busy combining two large corporations into one. Before that mud even had an opportunity to settle, the pandemic hit in early 2020, successfully shutting down all of Hollywood for a whole yr. The business remains to be recovering from that in some ways.
More just lately although, it turned clear that no matter plans for a sequel that existed must, on the very least, be retooled. In March of 2022, Willis’ family revealed that the actor has been affected by aphasia, which impacts one’s means to speak over time. At the time, his Rumor Willis launched a press release, saying the next:
“We wished to share that our beloved Bruce has been experiencing some well being points and has just lately been recognized with aphasia, which is impacting his cognitive talents. As a results of this and with a lot consideration Bruce is stepping away from the profession that has meant a lot to him.”
If the concept was, certainly, to do a sequel of any form, that’s now off the desk as Willis is successfully retired. That does not imply the franchise cannot proceed but when it does, it must be with out the star who made the franchise what it’s. That might make it tougher to get the venture off the bottom, admittedly.
