John Moore Signs Up To Direct <i>Die Hard 5</i>; Breck Eisner In The Running To Helm <i>RED 2</i>?

The Max Payne and Flight of the Phoenix director is in "final negotiations" to helm a fifth installment of the Die Hard franchise, while The Crazies' Breck Eisner is also in talks for the sequel to RED...

Deadline report that Behind Enemy Lines director John Moore is set to helm Die Hard 5, which will once again star Bruce Willis. According to the site, Fox were more than happy with their choice to hire the Irishman, but he still had to convince Willis that he was the right man for the job. His "love for the John McClane character, and his grasp of how to shoot practical, non-CGI-heavy action scenes" are said to have been what eventually swayed the actor. Meanwhile, Breck Eisner is said to be one of many names up for the task of directing RED 2. Below in an excerpt from the report, but be sure to click on the link below for more details.

After a long search process, 20th Century Fox and Bruce Willis have just chosen John Moore to direct Die Hard 5. The film will shoot in Russia, and the hope is to make it before Willis moves on to shoot a Red sequel for Summit Entertainment. In fact, Willis has just begun going through the same director search with Summit on a sequel to the 2010 hit Red. Robert Schwentke is busy helming Universal’s R.I.P.D. with Jeff Bridges and Ryan Reynolds. They’ve just begun casting the dragnet for directors on that film. Names like Breck Eisner are being floated, but other shooters are being considered.

I'm definitely not sure how to feel about this! Moore's filmography is far from inspiring with such flops as Max Payne, and as someone who hated RED, a sequel is pretty much the last thing I want to see, regardless of who may or may not be up for the directors job. As usual, be sure to share your thoughts on this news in the usual place!
