The Bruce Willis action vehicle Die Hard was released in 1988 to mixed responses. As film critic Roger Ebert wrote in his original review, "The name of the movie is 'Die Hard,' and it stars Bruce Willis in another one of those Hollywood action roles where the hero's shirt is ripped off in the first reel so you can see how much time he has been spending at the gym."

While Die Hard might not have been Ebert's favorite movie of the year (that honor went to Mississippi Burning and The Accidental Tourist), it gained a fan base that only grew as more and more films were added to the franchise, up through the release of the fifth Die Hard in 2013.

While fans have hoped for a sixth movie in the decade that's followed, Willis, who suffers from frontotemporal dementia, will not be returning to the role as he's retired from acting. In 2023, a rumor began circulating that John Krasinski would revive the franchise next year. Is that rumor based in any truth?

Here's what we know about whether a sixth Die Hard starring John Krasinski is really in the works.

Is there a new Die Hard sequel?

Rumors of a sixth Die Hard movie have roamed freely across the internet for years, but the most recent one claims that John Krasinski is set to take over the role made famous by Bruce Willis. Unfortunately (or fortunately, if you're a purist), a Die Hard movie starring Krasinski is not, in fact, in the works. 

It's hard to pinpoint the exact origin of the rumor, but we know it spread far and wide on Facebook (where else?) thanks in part to the circulation of a fake poster featuring Krasinski in a white tank top reminiscent of the one worn by Willis as McLane.

Despite the quasi-believability of the poster, the sequel is nothing but a hoax.
