Finally! Plot Details For A GOOD DAY TO DIE HARD
Yippee-Ki-Yay Mother Russia! Surprisingly, much of the plot to the new "Die Hard" film has been shrouded in mystery. I can tell you that some new information has become available that will help shed some light on the story. Hit the jump to check it out.
I think it's fair to say that the first trailer for A Good Day To Die Hard received a tepid response at best. Which is really odd for a Die Hard film. Usually fans get really fired up to see John McClane back in action, but this time around things comments seem to be much more negative. Perhaps the audience has tired of the franchise or they are weary of a director who has a poor track record of success. Well, whatever the reason is we now have a better clue about the plot.
The information provided below comes courtesy of MovieHole.
The plot, as we have all learned, featured McClane traveling to Russia to be with his son. So what’s going on with his son? What I’m being told is the son of John McClane, Jack, (played by Jai Courtney) is in fact an undercover CIA Operative. Cringe if you will, but this is slightly hinted at in the first teaser trailer released in September where Bruce Willis’ McClane says the line ” The 007 0f Plainfield, New Jersey.” This is referring to where the McClane / Gennaro family originally hail from, the city of Plainfield, NJ and McClane Jr being a secret agent, ala Bond 007.
CIA Agent Jack McClane meets his estranged father, the reluctant hero that is John McClane, in Moscow and who is apparently completely unaware how super-trained an agent his son actually is. Jack is so highly trained, that he’s deep undercover with Russian heavies who have their hands on some nukes, but once his cover is blown, both the younger and older McClanes are left with no alternative than to fend off Russian mobsters aplenty in unfamiliar territory.
20th Century Fox's A Good Day To Die Hard was written by Skip Woods and directed by John Moore ("Max Payne"). The film stars: Bruce Willis as John McClane, Jai Courtney as John "Jack" McClane, Jr., Cole Hauser as Collins, Sebastian Koch as Komorov, Yuliya Snigir as Irina and Mary Elizabeth Winstead as Lucy McClane. It will land in theaters February 14, 2013.
