Fox has created a short list of directors for Die Hard 5 after Noam Murro exits
Posted by: Zack Bruce
Now that Noam Murro has left DIE HARD 5 for 300: BATLLE OF ARTEMISIA the hunt is on for a new director.
The shortlist of helmers includes: Joe Cornish (ATTACK OF THE BLOCK), Justin Lin (FAST FIVE), Nicolas Winding Refn (DRIVE) and John Moore (MAX PAYNE).
Bruce Willis will return to the franchise as John McClane. There’s not much for a plot currently except for the fact that it would take place in Russia and is written by Skip Woods (THE A-TEAM).
So which guy do you choose for the job? As much as I hate to admit it, I think Lin might be one of the better options along with Refn. DRIVE looks like it’s going to be a great ride. The guy directed BRONSON, he’s got some chops, whether they fit the DIE HARD vibe I’m not entirely sure.
They are hoping to get started on the fifth film this fall.
