June 29, 2007 has been chosen as the release date for the fourth part in the Die Hard series. The movie named as Live Free or Die Hard would be released against Pixar and Walt Disney Co.'s animated Ratatouille.
Bruce Willis is going to play the character of John McClane again. He has played the character in all the first three films as well. In this movie McClane will be facing a gang of Internet terrorists.
The story centers on an attack on the U.S computer infrastructure that begins to shut the country down. The mysterious figure behind the scheme has figured out every digital angle but never counts on Willis' old-fashioned, "analog" character, John McClane.
The three Die Hard films, have earned $740 million. The first Die Hard was released in 1988. The second in the series was Die Hard 2 which was released in 1990. Die Hard 2 was followed by Die Hard: With a Vengeance.
