Here is what Bruce Willis had to say to Showbiz Spy about continuing on with the Die Hard franchise:
"In the next few years they could easily find a replacement for me or call the character someone else. But for me, I want to do Die Hard 5, then one final Die Hard movie - Die Hard 6 - before finally hanging that white vest up for good. At the moment, I can run and I can fight on screen. But there will come a time when I no longer want to do that. That's when I'll step away from the Die Hard films."
A Good Day to Die Hard was released February 14th, 2013 and stars Bruce Willis, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Jai Courtney, Yuliya Snigir, Patrick Stewart, Megalyn Echikunwoke, Cole Hauser, Anne Vyalitsyna. The film is directed by John Moore.
