‘Die Hard 5’ to be set in Russia?

Bruce Willis' fifth outing as John McClane eyes director John Moore

Story information and directing news on a potential fifth Die Hard film has been released online, with director John Moore the latest name attached to direct.

In a bid to shake things up, the action franchise looks set to leave American shores for the first time, with John McClane grabbing his passport and flying to Russia.

According to TwitchFilm, the New York cop, always in ‘the wrong place at the wrong time’, will be joined by his son for the overseas adventure.

It is also reported that the original choice for the director’s chair, Noam Murro, has opted for the 300 prequel, Battle of Artemisia, instead, leaving the door open for John Moore.


Moore has previously directed Behind Enemy Lines with Owen Wilson, the remake of The Omen and video game adaptation, Max Payne starring Mark Wahlberg.

Beginning in 1988, the Die Hard series first saw Bruce Willis in Los Angeles, as John McClane took out Alan Rickman‘s Hans Gruber in the Nakatomi Plaza. Next, a Washington airport was the location for the cops heroics, before Die Hard with a Vengeance finally put the New York cop in his hometown.

Die Hard 4.0 saw Willis team up with Justin Long and travel across the US, from Washington to West Virginia.

Bruce Willis has yet to officially confirm his involvement in a fifth outing for John McClane.
