As the movie begins an aged John McClane dies, only to recover consciousness in Heaven. Which has been invaded by and taken over by highly motivated demons and the other damned. The only being free is McClane, who manifested right after the take-over and got missed. Now only John McClane can save Heaven from the Legions of Hell!
Note that they could bring back Hans Gruber and his brother Simon for this.
