Die Hard 5 needs a new director, apparently also needs to be made

Possible "Die Hard 5" Director John Moore (right)

Die Hard 5 is the unnecessary sequel du jour, I guess. Apparently, the director that had been attached, Noam Murrow (Smart People), left the project because he would rather work on the sequel to The 300 (we’ve clearly run out of movie ideas at this point). Apparently Fox has a short list of directors including Joe Cornish (Attack the Block), Justin Lin (Fast 5), Nicholas Winding Refn (Drive, trust me I don’t know either), and John Moore (Max Payne). So basically there’s a 99.999999% chance that this is going to suck.

How much longer are they going to string along Die Hard at this point? The first movie was a classic, and the 2nd and 3rd weren’t terrible, and the 4th featured a car taking out a freaking helicopter. That’s a pretty far cry from walking barefoot on glass. In any case, the fifth installment is supposed to be set in Russia, where I’m assuming John McClane is going because it’s such a nice vacation spot. The really sad this is I’ll probably end up seeing this one like all the others and continuing my spiral into complete bitterness. But hey, at least Justin Long won’t be in it. We have to take solace in the little blessings these days.
