DIE HARD 5 Director John Moore Does Away With Goofball Lines For Willis
Serious car chase in the works as international production continues.
Okay, so I suppose there might be a way to get my curiousity going about a fifth installment to the Die Hard series, after all. I was beginning to have my doubts. I’ve already bemoaned the lack of supporting cornerstones from any of the early films. Hell, I was reaching a point where a return visit from Samuel L. Jackson’s character from With A Vengeance would’ve been a step in the right direction in comparison to the detached, PG-13 puddle of warm milk that was Live Free Or Die Hard.
So when I hear via Empire that John Moore is backing off most of the tedious McClane-isms that were such a touchstone for those earlier films, I become a little bit more intrigued. Or at least curious. The first thought is, “Okay, no Bonnie Bedelia, no Paul Gleason, no Dad from Family Matters, and now no smart-alecky one-liners? Is Bruce Willis in this thing?” Indeed he is, and if I decide to suspend my disbelief for two hours watching the old fart shimmying down ventilation shafts and jumping over subway cars, then maybe a nice dose of “Shut the hell up, McClane” will aid my concentration.
“I don’t think people are in the mood for that bollocks anymore,” Moore told Empire. “People are well savvy to the cynical reheating of any product, any franchise. Any shit won’t do. The bar’s a bit higher.”
Good show, chap. You’ve read my bloody mind, you have. And if that’s not enough, Moore tipped his hand on a massive car chase shot on location in Russia. How serious? Moore said the sequence required 78 days to complete shooting.
We’re all still waiting to catch a glimpse of a clip from the new flick. With A Good Day To Die Hard set for release in February, you can bet that the hype machine will start warming up just about any time now. When it does, you can bet the Complex will be there taking in all the pertinent exhaust fumes.
