After the atrocity that was Live Free or Die Hard, I still find it hard to believe the Die Hard franchise is continuing. But it is. The film is called A Good Day To Die Hard and Bruce Willis is back again as John McClane, this time travelling to Russia to see his son (Jai Courtney), where the pair then become two of the most wanted men in the country.
Leading the charge against the McClane and son will be a villain played by Cole Hauser, best known for his early roles in Dazed and Confused, Higher Learning and Good Will Hunting. John Moore is directing a script by Skip Woods. There’s more after the jump, including the first set photos and a logo. Read More »

It’s not like we were ever looking forward to Adam Sandler‘s Grown-Ups 2 to begin with, but now I’m wondering if Happy Madison is actively trying to annoy a certain segment of the population. Specifically, the portion of the filmgoing audience that despises both Grown-Ups and The Twilight Saga, which I’m guessing is the vast majority of our readership.
Taylor Lautner is now in talks for a “fun” part in the comedy sequel, joining returning actors Sandler, Kevin James, Chris Rock, David Spade, Maya Rudolph, and Salma Hayek as well as Project X star Oliver Cooper. The exact nature of Lautner’s character has not been revealed, but THR reports that he’ll be going “toe-to-toe” with Sandler’s character.
Like his Twilight co-star Robert Pattinson, Lautner’s struggled somewhat to build a career outside of the supernatural romance franchise. His big action thriller Abduction was a commercial disappointment, though it did better overseas, and while his name has popped up in association with a variety of different projects over the years, none of them have really panned out at this point. Still, Latuner seems to be trying to mix things up a bit. His involvement in Gus Van Sant’s next indie could be a nice step forward, but Grown-Ups 2 seems like two big steps back.
After the jump, 007 gets another new lady and we meet the folks who’ll try to beat down John and Jack McClane.

The fifth Die Hard film, A Good Day to Die Hard, won’t be shooting for a while yet. But yesterday we got word that one of the last big casting choices had been made, as Jai Courtney was cast as the son of John McClane (Bruce Willis). We don’t have any new details on the film, but there is an image of Courtney and Willis at least vaguely in character, from the screen test that won the role for the younger actor. Read More »

This news will make an old question new again: is there anything Fox can do to make you truly excited for another Die Hard sequel? The studio has been building the next installment of the series for several months, and has just set one of the last major pieces of the puzzle in place.
John Moore (Max Payne) will direct A Good Day to Die Hard from a script by Skip Woods, with Bruce Willis once again playing NYC cop (or perhaps former NYC cop) John McClane. This time, he travels to Moscow to talk the local authorities into freeing his jailed son, and both men end up embroiled in a world-threatening terrorist plot.
Fox is taking a cue from Paramount’s approach to casting Jeremy Renner in Mission: Impossible, and is potentially using this movie to groom a new actor to take over the Die Hard series. Now he’s been chosen, and Jai Courtney (Spartacus: Vengeance) will play the younger McClane. Read More »
