Bruce Willis Talks Die Hard 4

USA Today spoke with Bruce Willis about Die Hard 4:
He'll next be seen this fall in The Whole Ten Yards, a sequel to 2000's The Whole Nine Yards. He also is set to shoot Die Hard 4, due next year.
All this despite the fact that he is no fan of sequels.
"Sequels are not new movies," he says. "They're another chapter of a movie you've already seen. ... I have a little distaste for them based on how much TV I did."
Understandably, he expresses some reservations about the fourth installment of Die Hard.
"I always said the genre had kind of run out of gas and had to reinvent itself," he says. "I think that's the goal Fox has also. Maybe too much time has gone by since the last one. We'll see."
The last Die Hard film opened in 1995, and Willis openly says that the first Die Hard in 1988 "was the only good one."
He draws a comparison between the action films of its time and current ones: "If the first Die Hard were an analog version of an action movie, the kind of action movies that are being made right now are all digital. So, Die Hard 4 would have to be brought up to the modern age."
if he's so against sequels, why's he doing 2 of them?
he should do armageddon 2: the return of the comet
or hudson hawk ... never mind, i can't even finish THAT thought.
