As welcome as a new Die Hard movie would be, especially one kicking off a new chapter for the series, there’s quite a bit of evidence pointing a highly unexpected, but long lobbied for, Brooklyn Nine-Nine crossover event. The Die Hard movies exist in the show’s universe, as evident by Andy Samberg’s Detective Jake Peralta’s obsession with them, touting the original as the greatest cop movie of all time. The topic comes up in the odd episode now and again, but it’s never anything substantial — something that Samberg hopes to change.
Given how unlikely it is that another Die Hard movie came together during a pandemic, a Brooklyn Nine-Nine appearance from Bruce Willis may be the safest bet. Rumer also included #ad in her tweet, perhaps pointing to some kind of promotional partnership using the recognizability of Die Hard as a marketing tool is coming up. Thankfully October 18, 2020, should provide everyone with the clarity they’re looking for.
