Irish Director John Moore Talks Die Hard 5
Irish director John Moore has spoken about the tone of action sequel, A Good Day to Die Hard. The Dundalk native was yapping to Empire Magazine about the currently filming flick.
When asked if the film would be light-hearted, he responded with, "No, because that's preposterous!" Moore told the movie monthly. "I don't know whether it's post-financial crash or whatever, but I don't think people are in the mood for that b*llocks anymore". He added. "People are well savvy to the cynical reheating of any product, any franchise. Any s**t won't do. The bar's a bit higher." Of the currently filming in Russia action-fest, he finished with, "There are a couple of great gags and a couple of great McClanisms," Moore said. "It's not like he's this idiot, bumbling around Moscow making 'America won the Cold War' jokes. It's not Carry On Die Hard, I can assure you." Well, he did take down a fighter jet and a helicopter in the last one, John, so people have their suspicions.
Really like Moore as a helmer of action. There are snippets of his (admittedly flawed) work that really packs a punch. He also shoots a gorgeous film - as the remake of The Omen proved. We can expect to see the fifth Die Hard film, which will also feature McClane's son, next summer.
