I came across this article similar to this one yesterday about the release of the new Die Hard film, which is called A Good Day to Die Hard.
Now, I think that Live Free or Die Hard, directed by Len Weisman of the Underworld franchise, was a fantastic sequel (probably the best of the sequels, and yes, it was a sequel, not a reboot), considering the franchise had jumped the shark halfway through the second movie with that whole ejector seat thing, but sending John McClane to Russia? Come on!
And to add to the incident, the fifth film will be directed by John Moore, who directed the movie adaptation of Max Payne, which although captured the visual essence of the video game and had the superb casting choice of Mark Wahlberg as the title character, was a depressing letdown in virtually every other respect. I sincerely hoped it would be the greatest video game adaptation ever (which means it would probably only have to be better than Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time or Silent Hill), especially since the video game had such a cinematic premise.
The only redeeming quality I foresee is that maybe this installment will get an R rating, so that McClane can say his famous line without being muffled by a gunshot. (And thank God for director's cuts.) And it should also recycle more of Michael Kamen's score. Just because he's dead doesn't mean he can't still be useful.
I would've also preferred the title Old Habits Die Hard.
PS: They should one day make a Die Hard film with Hans Gruber's daughter or something.
