    Updates - Noam Murro exists 'Die Hard 5'

    Murro will be busy directing 300 prequel 'Xerxes' (aka 300: Battle Of Artemisia). Rumour John Moore (Behind Enemy Lines, Max Payne) could be lined up to helm Die Hard 5.

    Possible plot - Die Hard 5 will be set largely in Russia with John McClane accompanied there by his son and the two drawn into a conflict with local forces.

    It's the John Moore rumour that I find worrying.

    The man should be confined to directing traffic.

    It doesn't sound very good with his son in Russia. Die hard is a formula that has to be adhered to.

    I have to disagree about Surrogates, actually very subtle in places so not many people caught onto it.
    But as for Tears of the Sun... :suicide:

    Yes, in fact I wrote it. I wrote it in blood, after I cut myself in a nasty shaving accident and had an epiphany about John McClane fighting Nazis in space, but decided to tone it down a little...

    Problem?

    Part 1: Man alone in a building
    Part 2: Man alone in an airport
    Part 3: Man with sidekick in a city
    Part 4: Man with sidekick in an entire country

    I think any formula they might have stuck to with the first two is loooooong gone. It's now just The Adventures of John McClane, SuperCop.

    But I agree that setting it in Russia does sound a little desperate. What's going to be the excuse for getting him there? McClane doesn't strike me as the type of guy who goes on holiday.

    :)

    McLane was living and working in NY while his wife Holly and the kids were residing in LA. This separation was due to marital problems. Personally, I got the impression that John was visiting her and the kids over the Christmas period rather than, what most would depict, a proper 'Holiday'. (sight seeing, tours, sun, sea, sand etc etc...) :)

    I think the one man army confined in a small place isn't what makes die hard. It's the fact that he's just an everyday cop who happens to find himself in a situation, and he has to rely on his initiative and think on his feet. This is what makes him a great heroic character. DH3 is still in keeping with this formula but DH4 doesn't which is why its the weakest of the lot. In DH4 he can walk away pretty much whenever he wants, he gets far too much help along the way and needs a computer nerd to explain everything to him.

    I have to agree on this, even though the 4 die hard movies were awesome, Bruce Willis should just be grateful for the makers of this movie and do it for free.. kidding! :D

    John Moore set to direct, currently in final negotiations.

    Apparently Moore had to convince Willis that he was the right man for the job, "Moore and Willis had long meetings and Willis was swayed by Moore’s love for the John McClane character, and his grasp of how to shoot practical, non-CGI-heavy action scenes that have been a hallmark of the Die Hard series."

    It should be an R to get Die Hard back to its roots, but will 100% be a PG-13. Too much money for them to pass up. PG-13 probably means it will be a 12A here. Too much of a money incentive to not make the film they should.

    Not sure about the storyline, would prefer it set in the US somewhere but hopefully this will be good.

    Sounds like Die Hard - Regeneration

    Where's that strapping Lad Pitbull Arnovski when you need him?

    List of actors who may be reading for the part of Bruce Willis' son in DH5, include Ben Foster (Pandorum), Paul Dano (There will be Blood), Aaron Paul (Breaking Bad), Milo Ventimiglia (Heroes) and Paul Walker (Fast Five).

    I don't think any of them are a good fit, Ben Foster and Aaron Paul are the better actors but they are the the best of a bad bunch IMHO.

    I just dont think this movie should be made at all.

    You must be mistaken, there was no Indy 4.....

    Die Hard though, it's just not John McLane without multiple f-bombs, 4 was a decent action film, but it wasn't Die Hard.

    Indeed. It also doesn't fit well with an action film. You are being shot at, killing people, seeing people killed but yet your language is eloquent and devoid of any harsh words.

    It will probably be toned down and a bit rubbish like the last one. That's the trouble nowadays, too many action films are toned down to get a PG-13 (or 12a here) rating just so they can make more money. People might criticise The Expendables, but at least it had proper action unlike most mainstream action films.

    if Paul Walker gets the job, it may be the worst bit of casting since he got picked to play Billy Connolly's son in Timeline. :nono:
