Samuel L. Jackson May Return For Die Hard 6 Posted by Jeremy Thomas on 04.14.2014
Could Zeus be making his return to the franchise?
It must be said right off the bat that this is a rumor from Latino Review's El Mayimbe, and while he does get some right he also has a track record for being incredibly wrong from time to time. So that being said, take this with a big grain of salt. But Mayimbe claims that Twentieth Century Fox is meeting with writers for the next Die Hard and is taking pitches that would see Samuel L. Jackson's Zeus Carver return:
TWITTER SCOOP: FOX is meeting writers for takes on next DIE HARD. It has to involve John McClane AND Samuel Jackson's Zeus Carver character!
Jackson previously played the role in Die Hard With a Vengeance, where his character was tied up in John McClane's quest to stop Simon Gruber from blowing up New York City. This is all speculative and there is nothing to suggest that Jackson is on board for such a project, so a lot could change even if there is truth to this story.
The last film, A Good Day to Die Hard, managed to bring in $304.7 million worldwide on a $92 million budget, meaning that despite poor reviews it was still a hit for the studio.
