The only possible variations left for the formula are DIE HARD in an office buikling. Or tower. Or both together.

So you haven't seen Die Hard then?

Didn't sound like a joke to me either. Poor delivery if that was indeed what he was going for.

How could we best improve on such delivery?

(Mildly spoiler-ish but we probably knew most of this already)

“I love this one. It’s called A Good Day to Die Hard, and two things make it new: 1. John McClane, the ultimate American hero, goes to Russia. So talk about a fish out of water, he’s completely out of water. And 2. It’s really a father-son story, which is that John McClane’s been a great cop his whole life but he’s been a pretty lousy father. He has a grown son who he’s not really been in much touch with, and McClane thinks the son’s a fuck up—that’s a technical term.”

“So he goes to Russia, he thinks, to bail his son out of jail, and it turns out the son’s not a fuck up, he’s the antithesis of that. In fact, the apple has not fallen far from the tree, the apple has not fallen from the tree, which is that the son is a badder ass John McClane than John McClane.”

“It comes to the point in the story where they’re basically the most wanted men in the entire Soviet Union, and it’s the two of them against all of the bad guys. I’ve just gotta say, it’s a classic, classic Die Hard.”
I assume that despite the reference to the Soviet Union, a body which hasn't existed in 20 years, this movie will not, in fact, involve time travel! Good to see that McClane Jr will be a good guy, rather than a fuck-up.

So I wonder if they're setting this up for McClane Jr to take over the franchise from an ageing Bruce?

I like the write up as generic as it may sound. I also was thinking Soviet Union? Who wrote this, someone in need of a geopolitical brush up.

No mention on if they're aiming for an R rating or not.

Re: Die Hard V - Not Looking Good...

I tend to think that since the last one did really well at PG-13 that this one is likely to stay PG-13. Just my hunch.

I recall reading somewhere that Willis wanted an R rating after he saw how successful The Expendables was last year.

So, they're combining the worst elements from "Indiana Jones and the Crystal Anal Probes" and the recent Ghost Rider sequel which they could only afford to film in Lower Sheepfuckistan?

Oh good, a cunty son. Also, I'd not heard about Russia being called the Soviet Union again.
