Conjuring Writers Chad And Carey Hayes Working On Die Hard Prequel

Still from'The Conjuring 2 | Reuters

Chad and Carey Hayes, the writers behind The Conjuring and the House of Wax remake are rewriting the screenplay for Die Hard 6, the film now in production with Len Wiseman coming back to both produce and direct.

The sixth Die Hard film is coming together.

Len Wiseman is producing and directing Die Hard: Year One.

No story details have been confirmed, but word on the street says the film looks set to be an origin story where we see a younger actor portray McClane as a regular cop in 1970s NY. Now, a new report reveals that "Die Hard 6" has enlisted "The Conjuring" writers to rewrite the script for the film. In addition to The Conjuring films, the Hayes brothers also co-wrote The Reaping, House of Wax, and more.

Nidahas Trophy: Onslaught from Sharma, Raina take India to 176/3
Skipper Rohit Sharma has been out of form and the Mumbai batsman would like to hit the purple patch as soon as possible. Rubel Hossain was the lone wicket-taker in the innings as he finished his spell read 2-27 after the innings.

The Conjuring is a supernatural horror film, the first one in The Conjuring franchise. Rumour has it they will also be writing Journey to the Center of the Earth 4.

Since the last two installments in the "Die Hard" franchise were poorly received, it is interesting to see how the Hayes will revive the franchise. As we said before, that's just an bad idea because the whole point of the first Die Hard was that McClane was just an average cop in the wrong place at the wrong time who had to use his cunning to get out of it.

The problem here is that if McClane does something impressive in the 1970s, it minimizes his heroics in the original Die Hard because you wonder why people wouldn't already know him.
