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.
