Die Hard V - Not Looking Good

Weirdest subtitle ever.

Maybe originally it was Die Hard V: Of Mars!

Some pics and vids and a claim regarding what would be, if true, a welcome cameo:

Ok the film just went up a notch in my estimation if that's true...

The excellent Amaury Nascalo, from Prison Break and Southland, is one of two new additions to the cast:

Can't wait to see John use a fridge to survive a nuclear explosion. And don't forget the CG animals!

Director John Moore talks DHV and he's
keen to downplay idea that the fifth Die Hard could be a light-hearted romp - this is a Die Hard movie, pure and simple. In other words, no glib jokes then? No "How can the same shit happen to the same guy five times..." lines?
"No, because that’s preposterous! I don’t know whether it’s post-financial crash or whatever, but I don’t think people are in the mood for that bollocks anymore. People are well savvy to the cynical reheating of any product, any franchise. Any shit won’t do. The bar’s a bit higher."
But what about the fish-out-of-water element, with McClane in Moscow?
"There are a couple of great gags and a couple of great McClanisms. It’s not like he this idiot, bumbling around Moscow making ‘America won the Cold War’ jokes. It’s not Carry On Die Hard, I can assure you…"
And what about the scale of the movie? So far, each Die Hard has been bigger than the one before…
"The scope along goes from New York to Moscow. It’s very, very international. There’s a car chase through Moscow that’s taking us 78 days to shoot. So… yeah. That should answer your question!"

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

78 days to shoot one car chase? I understand that action sequences take a lot of time and coordination, but, jeez that had better be the best friggin' car chase anyone's ever put on film.

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

I wonder is it meant to read '7-8 days'?

I'm sure that they filmed other scenes during that 78 day period; it just took that long to complete that particular sequence.

(Unless it's a typo for 7-8).

John Moore sounds like someone who's never watched Die-Hard. Why do they keep hiring these hacks?

^ It's Fox. They like cheap hacks who'll do what they told (paging Brett Ratner...).

I found his comments about one-liners and wisecracks bizarre. One of the appealing things about McClane right from the first movie was his readiness to crack wise about the situation he found himself in. I liked how he was always complaining, talking to himself, spluttering and swearing.

Really, Bruce Willis' recent less-is-more acting style, while well suited to some of his more offbeat roles, doesn't lend itself to McClane. And 4.0 suffered from its unwillingness to place the odd profanity in/ out of his mouth. Ned Flanders as McClane?

Definitely a contributing factor. With the shit John usually finds himself in, political correctness is probably the last thing on his mind.
