The Next Die Hard Movie?

Reading this book I couldn't help but think if Die Hard 4 were to be made as a prequel, this could be the story. The main character is so "John MacCleanish" that this could be MacClean's story in the Marines.

The main character, Schofield heads a small batallion of marines to a scientific research station in Antarctica. The scientists have discovered "something" that must be secured until the proper authorities get there. What is not realized is several other supposed "ally" nations also know about the "something" and send their own military contingents to secure the same place. What follows are battles where people hang from hovercrafts, duck futuristic grenades, do battle with killer whales, and have to deal with a new species of killer seal that is bigger and deadlier than the whales.

Action fans will love this book. Those who like pure science fiction will be greatly disappointed. The action, though totally absurd at times, kept me riveted.
