Die Hard 5 gets a director

And it's… Noam Murro

Noam Murro (Smart People) will direct Bruce Willis in Die Hard 5.

Brucie has reportedly been keen to do another Die Hard movie (or two), and Murro has been brought in by 20th Century Fox to direct the next installment in John McClane's adventures.

Smart People is Churro's only previous feature as a director. The indie dramedy starred Dennis Quaid, Thomas Haden Church, Sarah Jessica Parker and Ellen Page as a highly intelligent, but dysfunctional, family unit.

While that movie may not make him sound like the ideal candidate for a high-octane action gig, he has also impressed studio bosses with a recent campaign for a Halo videogame.

Willis is also due to appear in Stephen Frears' Lay The Favourite, alongside Rebecca Hall.

Die Hard 4.0 was something of a disappointment for fans of the series, as it didn't really have that Die Hard 'feel' to it. It'll be interesting to see if Murro can reinvigorate the franchise.

Bruce Willis is also set for a sequel to OAP actioner Red.

      Die Hard 5 will never have the feel to it if they insist on making it a PG-13 !!!!!! It needs to be a hard R.

      I hope they will go back to what made Die Hard great in the first place, the whole 'taking out enemies in a confined space' thing, leave the running-all-over -the-city-saving-stuff to Jack Bauer.

      Love the John McClane Character, and Willis can play him in his sleep... Agree with Ali1748 and Hadouken76, though there's only so many times they can use that dynamic, before it start's getting ridiculous... Agree with Dalidab that the next storyline has to involve something close to home for John McClane, like a family member or a involve a payback like in Vengence...

      You freckin' doughnuts. Diehard 3 was the only film that didn't involve family members.

      I cannot wait for this movie! To make it a real Die Hard movie though it would need to be 18 rated with lots of the old classic die hard violence.
