And no, I’m not suggesting everyone go on some weirdo St. Valentine’s Day massacre. But given the title, I’m sure all you smart cookies figured out that this story is “Die Hard” related. With that said, 20th Century Fox has announced that the fifth installment in the “Die Hard” series will be released on February 14, 2013 and be titled “A Good Day to Die Hard”.
Filming will begin in January 2012 on-location in Russia.
With a script written by Skip Woods (“The A-Team”, “X-Men Origins: Wolverine”), the film will be directed by John Moore (“Max Payne”) and is officially described as follows:
Since the first Die Hard in 1988, John McClane has found himself in the wrong place at the wrong time, with the skills and attitude to always be the last man standing, making him enemy #1 for terrorists the world over. Now, McClane faces his greatest challenge ever, this time on an international stage, when his estranged son Jack is caught up in the daring prison escape of a rogue Russian leader, and father and son McClane must work together to keep each other alive and keep the world safe for democracy.
Everything is still in the early stages, so there’s no word yet on who’ll play Bruce Willis’ son in the film and the studio still doesn’t know if the film will be rated PG-13 like “Live Free or Die Hard” was or rated R like the first three films.
As previously reported, Mary Elizabeth Winstead recently revealed that she doubts she’ll be back for the fifth installment so kiss Lucy McClane out of the picture.
