Twitch is reporting that the fifth Die Hard film is getting closer to production, and that there’s even a story. Well, maybe not a story, but certainly a setting: Russia! That’s right, Badass Hall of Fame member John McClane will, for the first time ever, be heading out of the country.
Don’t look for Mary Elizabeth Winstead to be doing a lot in this one, though, as Twitch’s sources say that it’s McClane and son this time around - possibly setting up a franchise hand-off?
Taking McClane out of the country has been kicked around for years; at one point Tears of the Sun was going to be basically Die Hard In A Jungle, but ended up being a different film altogether. There’s no director on Die Hard 5 right now, but Twitch says the shockingly bland John Moore (Max Payne, the Omen remake) is the leading contender for the job. Imagine looking back at Len Wiseman fondly!
