‘Die Hard 5’ gets ‘Behind Enemy Lines’ director John Moore

DIGITAL SPY: Behind Enemy Lines director John Moore has been confirmed as the director of Die Hard 5.

After being linked to the movie earlier this year, it has been revealed that Moore was chosen after a long deliberation process by both 20th Century Fox and Bruce Willis to replace former director Noam Murro, who had to depart due to the high demands of making 300 prequel Xerxes.

According to Deadline, Willis was reportedly won over by Moore’s love for his character John McClane and his experience of shooting practical, non-computer-generated action sequences.

Die Hard 5 will see hero McClane team up with his son to foil criminal forces in Russia. The new script has been created by X-Men Origins: Wolverine writer Skip Woods.

Other directors previously believed to be linked to Die Hard 5 included Attack the Block‘s Joe Cornish, Fast Five director Justin Lin and Drive‘s Nicolas Winding Refn.

Filming is scheduled to begin in Russia later this year, before Willis moves on to shoot a Red sequel. He is currently also searching for a director for this sequel, with Breck Eisner among those linked to the project.
