John Moore to Direct Die Hard 5

ON

One of the candidates rumored earlier this month, Max Payne director John Moore has taken the job as director of the as-of-yet-untitled fifth Die Hard film, Deadline reports.

The film, drafted by Skip Woods (The A-Team, X-Men Origins: Wolverine) is said to bring John McClane and his son to Russia. Bruce Willis is certain to return to his iconic role with no word yet on the casting of his son. Though Mary Elizabeth Winstead played McClane’s daughter in Live Free or Die Hard, her character’s brother was only mentioned offhand in that film and hasn’t been seen since then-child actor Noah Land played the role in the original Die Hard.

The film is expected to begin production soon, filming on-location in Russia.
