What is the retirement age of New York cops? Whatever it is, John McClane must be getting close. Unfortunately for him, there seems to be no shortage of terrorists who want to embroil our reluctant hero in more explosive encounters.

During a recent interview with the BBC's One Show (via Bleeding Cool) he was asked about the possibilities of a Die Hardest, to which simply replied, "Yes".

Well, there you have it! Confirmation that McClane's recent excursion to Moscow in A Good Day to Die Hard will probably not be the last time he says Yippee-ki-Yay before killing a heavily accented bad guy.

But there's more; in a recent interview with the New York Post, Willis threw in his two cents into America's biggest debate at the moment — gun control. Obviously as an actor who's made a career from dispatching people with various exotic boom-sticks, Willis was always going to face the journalistic firing squad. Also, perhaps unsurprisingly, it turns out he's against the limitation of military-grade death-spurting machines. He explained:

I think that you can't start to pick apart anything out of the Bill of Rights without thinking that it's all going to become undone. If you take one out or change one law, then why wouldn't they take all your rights away from you?" He also adds that "there's no way to legislate against insanity".

Although Willis and myself might clash on this issue, we can agree on one thing, and that's the affect movies have on violence. He continued:

No one commits a crime because they saw a film. There's nothing to support that. We're not making movies about people that have gone berserk, or gone nuts. Those kind of movies wouldn't last very long at all.

To be honest, I think McClane is sometimes pretty close to going 'nuts', but he's shooting bad guys, so that's fine.

The more important question we're asking is whether another Die Hard movie is a good thing? Are you glad to see McClane return for a sixth adventure? Let us know below.
