Underworld 1 and 2 helmer, Len Wiseman, is aboard to direct Bruce Willis in the upcoming sequel which finds hero John McClane (Willis) coming out of retirement to battle an Internet terrorist organization intending to systematically demolish or seize our technological infrastructure via a three-day plan.
