Bruce Willis has returned to an iconic filming location from his classic film Die Hard.

The 67-year-old actor's wife Emma Heming Willis shared a clip on social media of the Pulp Fiction legend at the site of the Nakatomi Plaza in California where most of Die Hard is filmed.

In the short video, Willis is shown standing on top of the building (which in real life is the Fox Plaza) taking in the scenery while images from Die Hard have been spliced into the clip.

"As a result of this and with much consideration Bruce is stepping away from the career that has meant so much to him.”
