Pop versus old school in Die Hard 4
Willis spoke to Extra on the set of his new movie with Halle Berry (X-Men, Gothika, Catwoman), Perfect Stranger, avoiding the question as to whether Jessica Simpson had been considered for the part of John McClane's daughter, by saying: "Man, I don't know even know if that character is even in this version of the script anymore. I can honestly tell you that Bonnie Bedelia and Reginald VelJohnson, from the first films, are the only guys we've talked about bringing back."
Die Hard fans will remember VelJohnson as Sergeant Al Powell in the first film and Bonnie Bedelia as his long-suffering wife Holly.
Those who have been keeping a close eye on the progress of Die Hard 4 will see the return to the old school design as a departure from recent rumours that have linked a succession of teen popsters with roles in the film.
Besides the already mentioned Jessica Simpson, there had been rumours that former couple Justin Timberlake and Britney Spears were being considered for parts.
