Bruce Willis Back On Die Hard Set After Fire

Hollywood actor Bruce Willis has returned to the set of the latest Die Hard film after production was halted because of a fire.

The 57-year-old reprises his role as John McClane, which he first played almost 25 years ago, for the fifth movie in the franchise, A Good Day To Die Hard.

On Thursday, shooting in the Hungarian capital, Budapest, was stopped after a building burst into flames when a pyrotechnics stunt went wrong.

Part of the set was destroyed but nobody was injured, according to film studio 20th Century Fox.

Willis was not present at the time of the fire.

Hungary is being used to represent Russia where McClane must get his son,  played by Australian Jai Courtney, out of trouble with the authorities.

Directed by John Moore, the film also stars Patrick Stewart and German actor Sebastian Koch.

Willis first played New York policeman McClane in 1988. Film number four, Live Free Or Die Hard, received mainly positive reviews when it was released in 2007 - grossing around £247m worldwide.

Die Hard 5 is due for release in February 2013.
