Old Guard Star Charlize Theron Wants to Do Gender-Bent Die Hard Reboot

There is little doubt that Die Hard is one of the greatest action films of all time and fans believe it shouldn't be remade. But what if it was Charlize Theron playing a gender-bent John McClane? The star of The Old Guard has just been presented with the idea and it looks like she's eager to take on the role.

A fan recently tweeted their idea for the perfect Christmas movie. "Lesbian Christmas rom coms are all well and good but what I REALLY want is a Die Hard where Charlize Theron goes on a rampage to save her wife," the fan wrote.

Amazingly, Theron noticed the post and immediately retweeted it with an awesome response. Check it out below.

"Where do I sign," Theron wrote.


We're loving the idea that Theron is interested in doing a remake of Die Hard. After all, she has already proven she is more than capable of taking on action films. On the other hand, this isn't something that has been planned just yet so it may take some time before we get to see this happening.

Although it seems unlikely that we'll be getting a gender-bent Die Hard remake, fans can rest assured that Theron will be back for more action soon. There have been speculations that a sequel to The Old Guard is currently being developed. Hopefully, we'll get an update on this soon.
