Bruce Willis found his son; Jai Courtney joins A Good Day To Die Hard
Any time I write anything about the fifth Die Hard movie, A GOOD DAY TO DIE HARD, I find myself compelled to point out that I don’t decide the news, I merely report it. So don’t blame me because some movie executive at Fox thinks it sounds like a good idea to have our beloved John McClane travel to Russia to help out his equally tough son. There are so many things wrong with that basic plot-line that it’s hard to muster anything more than a dramatic sigh when thinking about the film. But ever since the storyline was announced, there have been rumors as to who will play McClane’s son and today, we have our answer; ‘Spartacus: Blood & Sand’ star Jai Courtney.
Specific details on the plot of the fifth film aren’t known just yet, but I think it’s telling that they went with someone with Jai’s physique. That tells me that he’ll be doing a lot of stunts and probably won’t wear his shirt for much of the film. But if they were going to pass the torch to keep the franchise going, I figured they would have gone with a more established actor. But I’ve never seen Jai in anything, so maybe he’s a perfect fit. The John Moore directed film hits theaters on February 14th, 2013. The image below is from Jai Courtney’s screen test with Bruce Willis.
