It's clear that Wiseman sees McClane not as an everyman, who, despite his impressive heroics in the first three Die Hard movies, is reasonably grounded and carries a level of humanity, but as a superhero complete with an origin story.
Back in 2015 it was announced that Len Wiseman (Underworld) would be "reinventing" Die Hard with a sixth instalment in the Bruce Willis-headlined action series.
Disney reorganizes businesses, creates direct-to-consumer unit

Last month, Willis revealed that the film is still going ahead and the script had been written. The siblings have a dozen projects set up all over town, and while it may not be a Die Hard movie, it's interesting to note that Chad Hayes once played a mercenary in the original Lethal Weapon, which is pretty cool.
Chad and Carey Hayes, the writers behind The Conjuring and the House of Wax remake are rewriting the screenplay for Die Hard 6, the film now in production with Len Wiseman coming back to both produce and direct. The two brother scribes became an in-demand dup in Hollywood following their work on the 2013 film "The Conjuring" and its 2016 sequel, "The Conjuring 2", which had a combined worldwide revenue of $600 million. The film is rumored to be an origin story of sorts, in which we see a younger actor portray McClane as a (relatively) regular cop in 1970s NY.

The franchise has gone on to produce a number of video games, and a comic book, and later in 2017 was selected for preservation in the United States National Film Registry.
Willis first portrayed McClane in the 1988 film "Die Hard", which was a phenomenal hit.
