New 'Die Hard' to Break 'Free' in 2007

20th Century Fox has set a title and a release date for the fourth installment of the "Die Hard" series.

The studio will go "yippee-kai-yay" with "Live Free or Die Hard" on June 29, pitting the action movie against the Pixar and Walt Disney Co. animated "Ratatouille," being directed by Brad Bird.

With Bruce Willis is reprising his role as John McClane, 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 an old-fashioned, "analog" McClane.

Len Wiseman ("Underworld") is directing.

The movie is scheduled to begin production next month.

Mark Bomback and Doug Richardson penned the screenplay, which at one point was titled "Die Hard 4.0."

Arnold Rifkin is producing the latest entry. The three "Die Hard" films have earned $740 million worldwide and influenced a generation of action filmmaking. The franchise also made then-TV actor Willis into a bona fide film star.

Borys Kit and Tatiana Siegel writes for The Hollywood Reporter.
