‘Die Hard’ Delayed by Bruce Willis’ Paunch?

Filming on the fourth Die Hard movie may be put on hold until star Bruce Willis slims down and gets toned.

The Hollywood hardman admits he’s piled on the pounds since he first played maverick cop John McClane 18 years ago and is determined not to embarrass himself with a flabby physique on screen.

He says, “I need to get in shape, I need to work out.

“There is a high chance it will be out next summer–we’re in the final stages of getting it all together.”

The movie’s plot had to be rewritten after last year’s Hurricane Katrina tragedy–the original screenplay involved an oil tanker explosion that sends huge waves flooding into New Orleans, Louisiana. 

Die Hard was released in 1988 and made Willis a star. Two sequels followed–Die Hard 2: Die Harder in 1990 and Die Hard with a Vengeance in 1995.
