The long-gestating project of DIE HARD 5 has been suffered constant setbacks after Bruce Willis announced he would like to make another two more DIE HARD movies before he retired his iconic John McClane character for good. When words are finally out that director Noam Murro attached to helm the fifth installment, with a script being written by Skip Woods, there is a glimmer of hope. But it's not until the forced departure of Murro to exit DIE HARD 5 after he is attached to direct 300 prequel XERXES.
With the current director out of the picture, there is a speculation that a possible new director might take over the fifth installment. According to Twitch, John Moore (MAX PAYNE) is being offered for the "take it-or-leave it" job. Seriously? John Moore? Hope this is not true.
In the meantime, the real plot details has finally revealed for DIE HARD 5. Unlike the previous four DIE HARD movies which occurred within the U.S. soil, the fifth installment will go global this time around. Believe it or not, DIE HARD 5 will take place largely in Russia with John McClane accompanied there by his son and the two eventually get themselves involved into a conflict with local forces.
Now how do you say "Yipee-kai-yay, motherf***er!" in Russia?
