Good idea! Last December, someone on social media suggested that Charlize Theron would be the perfect fit to star in a lesbian remake of Die Hard.
Die Hard, starring Willis as NYPD officer John McClane, premiered to lukewarm reviews in 1988. However, in the years that followed, the holiday season action flick became a classic, amassing a legion of devoted fans and several sequels.
In the film, McClane visits his ex-wife (Bonnie Bedelia) in Los Angeles on her office vacation party when the terrorists, led by the late actor Alan Rickman, start to take their toll.
With nothing but his wits, an infamous air well, and an LAPD ally on the ground, McClane goes along with the terrorists in order to save his wife.
Most die-hard die-hard fans will argue that since the film’s plot centers around the activities of the Nakatomi Plaza Christmas party, it is indeed a holiday movie.
“I mean, it’s a great idea,” she said. “That’s why I responded on Twitter. Because I just thought it was awesome. The fact that it would be two women. I was like, “Yeah, sign me up.” ‘
Theron should have no problem stepping into the role if a remake is on the horizon, as she has already proven her action skills in films like Mad Max and Atomic Blonde.

In her interview, the Oscar winner discussed the release of The Old Guard directly on Netflix. “ Somehow he was supposed to come out Theron says of The Old Guard, which hit Netflix last summer.
“ And it was supposed to just be on people’s TVs. In the end, that’s why I think it was such a success. It talks thematically about the things people were going through. And so part of me is like, “What if this isn’t on the big screen?” I’m not mad that probably more people have seen The Old Guard than any other movie I’ve ever made, outside of Fast & Furious, in a theater.
