If you don’t love Die Hard and Indiana Jones, I’m not sure you’re alive. Die Hard is the best pure action movie ever, most quotable, and definitely the best Christmas movie. Raiders of the Lost Ark is one of the best movies ever period, and each series has a great third entry and a good second entry. We don’t need to discuss the rest.
Lucky for us, that’s exactly what we’re gonna get. According to Deadline, Chad Stahelski is lined up to direct a movie that is being described as a mashup of those two franchises, to which I can only say TAKE MY MONEY.
Written by Andrew Deutschman and Jason Pagan, the movie concerns a bunker containing dangerous and powerful artifacts that were recovered during World War II. Remember that big building at the end of Raiders, where they unceremoniously dump the Ark? Apparently, that’s where this movie will take place.
In more awesome 80s action movie news, Stahelski, who is just about to start filming John Wick 4, is also planning to resurrect the Highlander series with a reboot. Apparently, there can be more than one. Hopefully, the new one will contain fewer Queen power ballads and zero Christopher Lambert’s terrible accent.
Stahelski has already made a name for himself with the Wick franchise, but it sounds like he’s got a lot more up his sleeve. Thank god for that!
