"Die Hard" fans, mark your calendar on June 29, 2007. 20th Century Fox has set up the date to open the fourth installment of the franchise, now titled "Live Free or Die Hard", so Variety has reported. Being so, the movie therefore will face Disney/Pixar's "Ratatouille" which is also slated to be opened on the same day.
Directed by Len Wiseman of "Underworld" fame, the picture still sees Bruce Willis playing the New York cop John McClane who this time has to stop techno-terrorist from shutting down the nation's computer systems on the Fourth of July.
Former "Die Hard" director, John McTiernan, is producing with Willis and Arnold Rifkin while Mark Bomback is tapped to pen the scripts.
