Boom! Studios will release Die Hard: Year One in August, according to Empire.
The story centres on a younger version of the John McClane character, who Bruce Willis played on screen in the
1988 original film and its three sequels.
Set in 1976, the rookie cop will be honing his skills during a plot involving the bicentennial celebrations in New York City.
Willis, 54, was last seen as McClane in 2007's Die Hard 4.0.
