More Die Hard?

More Die Hard?

It is rumoured on the web that there has been some movement on ‘Die Hard 5’ recently with Noam Murro being discussed as a potential director for the new film. His previous films include 2008’s ‘Smart People’, and a TV short called ‘HBO Imagine’. It’d be interesting to hear more details on how Murro might envisage a new instalment in the Die Hard franchise, given he doesn’t appear to have been involved in any large scale action titles previously.

It’s no surprise that we may be seeing another instalment in the franchise, the last film titled ‘Live Free or Die Hard’ was released in 2007. With an estimated production budget of $134 million the film went on to receive approximately $383 million in worldwide gross.

Obviously securing Bruce Willis for the film would be pretty essential to continuing the franchise, though after four installments so far it would be interesting to see if they can produce something that doesn’t quite retread the previous films.

More details to come as they are announced. In the meantime feel free to let us know your favourite Die Hard films in the comments section below. Personally I felt disappointed by ‘Live Free or Die Hard’, with my favourite remaining the original and ‘Die Hard: With a Vengeance’ being a close second. 

Leith spent most of his formative years growing up on the coastal fringes of Western Australia without a cinema in sight. There he grew up on the wonders of home rentals before relocating to Perth and gaining access to a proper cinematic experience just in time for the Star Wars Special Edition re-releases. From there Leith's love of movies expanded to volunteering on a Star Wars fan film, reviewing films, writing about film news, and attending film and pop-culture related conventions on the other side of the world. Leith's favourite films are too many to mention but all start with the Star Wars saga, Back to the Future, the Dark Knight trilogy, Indiana Jones, Lord of the Rings and all things Kevin Smith. With an insatiable appetite for all things pop-culture related Leith also has an unhealthy addiction to the world of comics and can often be found buried under a pile of unread back issues madly trying to catch up on a number of titles coming out from mostly DC and Darkhorse.
