A Good Day To Die Hard : Die Hard 5 - October 4, 2012, 02:10 PM

John McClane is back, once again dutifully murdering both terrorist and helicopter with all the zeal of a man half his age in A Good Day To Die Hard. Also murdering terrorists and helicopters: a man half his age, a son played by Australian actor Jai Courtney. Not that you get much sentimental father-son bonding, or any recognition of familial ties at all, in this first teaser for the film. There are too many things to explode first.

Seen above in a screen test in which Bruce Willis bounces a "What's the deal with the gun, anyway?" routine off him, Australian actor Jai Courtney has been cast as John McClane's estranged son, John McClane Jr., in A Good Day To Die Hard.

John Moore is directing the latest unlikely Die Hard sequel, and he and Willis reportedly met with untold up-and-coming young actors before selecting Courtney for the part. Willis's Expendables 2 co-star and soon-to-be Hunger Games sensation Liam Hemsworth even was up for the part at one time, but ultimately lost out to this cheaper cut of meat who is probably best known for playing Varro in Spartacus: Blood And Sand.

With Jr. (or Jack, as he's said to be called) cast, he and Bruce Willis will now head to Russia, where they will apparently turn a standard Die Hard plot into some kind of belated Cold War message that, like any more Die Hard sequels, probably should have been made a couple decades ago.

Hollywood is out of ideas...

“Any man who tries to be good all the time is bound to come to ruin among the great number who are not good. Hence a Prince who wants to keep his authority must learn how not to be good, and use that knowledge, or refrain from using it, as necessity requires”.

- Nicolo Machiavelli 1469-1527

You're right. It actually has a bit of complex dialogue.

Hmmm, I don't like all the power creep that happens with sequels. Always need to outdo the last one, so you go from a great movie about a foiled heist to saving the world from super doomsday weapons. Even if there's no Dr. Strangelove weapon here, it will be coming along in Die Hard 6...or 7...or 8...

Btw, Die Hard (1) was the greatest action movie of all time.
