"I played a bad guy in 'The Jackal,'" Willis, 55, told the Chicago Tribune.
Willis was in Chicago promoting Sobieski Vodka. "I don't feel like I'm missing out. I guess I have fun doing what I'm doing. I get to pretty much do what I want. And I keep getting asked back."

The story said it appears Willis will be replaying the role of John McClane in a fifth "Die Hard" movie. The most recent film in the franchise was 2007's "Live Free or Die Hard."

"There's a script that I think is going to be turned in this Friday. I hear good things about it," Willis said.
