“I refuse to say that.” Bruce Willis didn’t want ‘Die Die 2’ to be humorous and a scene he hated caused trouble during filming

caste of Bruce Willis is full of unforgettable movies, but most of us always remember John McClainThe legendary character he played in five films of the ‘Die Hard Jungle’ saga. The first of them launched his career on the big screen, so it’s curious that he was completely antithetical to the second installment, including the humor.

,He is not the John McClain the public loves.”

Used to be Renny HarlinThe director of ‘The Jungle 2: Red Alert’ has revealed this shocking fact in a conversation with Empire. In it he assured that Willis wanted to play McClane”.Blu-ray, this movie had to be serious“, that’s why no jokes, one-liners or anything like that, As expected, the rest of the people involved didn’t like it too much, and Harlin commented that he said the following to the actor:

He is not the John McClain the public loves. They think you are their friend now, and they don’t want to lose their friend.

However, Willis was bent on it, which forced the producer joel silver joined in and a peculiar agreement was reached which Harlin recalls as follows:

Joel, Bruce and I had a great meeting. The result was that Bruce agreed to do as many takes as I wanted to do it, and then we would do a take with humor the way I wanted to do it. He did it reluctantly, and not with great pleasure, but he did it. In the end, every funny moment that could be captured – even a smile that might have cracked before the camera realized it was on – was made into film. The first question the executives asked me when they saw it was, “Are there any funny moments in this?” I told him, “Unfortunately, I used up everything I had.”

‘Lethal Memory’ director also highlights a scene Willis particularly hated in which another character was flirting with McClane pointing to her wedding ring and asking her to just give him the fax. This caused a minor crisis during the filming of the film:

Bruce hated it. He said, “It is utter nonsense and stupidity. I refuse to say it.” It took an hour there at the counter as I begged her and Joel to join me to say one more time out of 15 texts. But it’s in the movie and people love it. It’s not just funny, it shows that he cares for his wife. This makes him trustworthy and a truly respectable person. Because it’s not just about saving the world, but about something more personal.

personally i think harlin was right And that we benefited from the fact that the film retained the sense of humor that was already so fundamental in the first installment.
