Back in July we learned that director John Moore (Max Payne) would step up to direct Die Hard 5, and the story might take John McClane and his son to Russia for the action. Now we not only have confirmation on that news, but a release date and an official title for the next installment in the long-running action franchise starring Bruce Willis. An official press release today revealed that A Good Day to Die Hard will hit theaters on February 14th, 2013, making a perfect date movie for all those sweethearts out there. The film will find McClane trying to save his son somewhere in Russia where "nothing is what it seems."
It has yet to be revealed who will play John McClane Jr., but the character hasn't been seen since his appearance in the original Die Hard, though he was mentioned briefly in Live Free or Die Hard. As of now it's not clear whether the film will be PG-13 like the last disappointing installment or whether the franchise will go back to its roots as a blood-ridden, foul-mouthed, R-rated badass action series. Frankly, I'm a little concerned with bringing McClane's son into the mix if only because that didn't work out so well for Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull. Here's hoping Skip Woods (The A-Team) has written a decent script and brings back the John McClane who drops F-bombs that we all know and love. Excited yet?
