Hollywood hardman Bruce Willis is desperate to do justice to iconic action hero JOHN McCLANE in Die Hard 4.0, because he was disappointed with the second and third installments of the movie series.

The UNBREAKABLE actor is already a regular at the gym as he prepares to reprise his best known role - and he assures fans the movie will be a departure from its predecessors rather than a cynical cash-in on a successful franchise.

The 49-year-old says, "It's completely different from the other three films. I'm really geared up for getting back in shape.

"Of the other three films I thought only the first one had any merit to it. Actually, in the third one I think Samuel L Jackson's work was really strong."
