Bruce Willis has revealed he is planning to make a fifth Die Hard movie.

The 54-year-old, who has played heroic cop John McClane four times on the big screen since 1988, revealed to MTV while promoting new comedy Cop Out: "I think we're going to do a Die Hard 5 next year."

The 2007 release of Die Hard 4.0, or Live Free Or Die Hard as it was called in the US, directed by Len Wiseman, was a huge success.

Speaking about the next movie, Willis said: "I would hire Len Wiseman right now."

John McClane has gone from being trapped in a building, to trapped in an airport, to trapped by the internet, so Willis has big ambitions for the next film.

He revealed: "Well it's got to go worldwide. That would be my contribution to [the next movie]."

Speaking about the Die Hard series, the Hollywood star said: "There is no John McClane - the John McClane that exists is only in film and in people's minds, and it continues to grow, that mythology continues to grow. I take a certain amount of pride in being part of that [mythology], and the fact that I still get to do it."

He revealed he likes making movies that make people laugh.

"But I like so much more making fun of it, taking the p**s out of it and not making it a big deal. Not making the fact that I've acted in a lot of movies a big deal. It's all illusion and it's all bulls**t and it's a great job for me to have, but everything else you can set on fire. Making people laugh is the real deal," he said.
