Even though Live Free or Die Hard wasn’t much of anything that could compare with the rest of the Die Hard franchise; it made enough money to merit a fifth film for Bruce Willis as John McClane. While lots of rumors are being thrown around, one thing that is certain is that a new director is needed as Noam Murro has bowed out.
Twitch Film is reporting that Murro has left the film due to being attached to 300: Battle of Artemisia (Xerxes) which is a prequel to 300. The demands of that film have caused him to leave Die Hard 5 for which a script is being written by Skip Woods.

Only one name has come up as a replacement director so far and that is John Moore (Max Payne) who Twitch says that the film is his “to take or leave.”
While the story of Die Hard 5 isn’t fully known, some plot details have leaked out a bit. Rumor has it that McClane will head to Russia and actually be accompanied by his son. The two will be drawn into a conflict of some sort there with local forces and must of course not…die hard.
Those in the New Orleans area will be able to order their tickets here for the Chalmette Movies, the Palace at Elmwood, and the Palace at the Clearview Mall once a release date is announced and we get closer.
