Die Hard 5 named A Good Day To Die Hard

Featuring John McClane, Jr.

 
We're still waiting for confirmation that Bond 23 will be called Skyfall, but we can now reveal the official title for Die Hard 5: A Good Day To Die Hard
 
Tom Rothman, Chief Executive Officer at Fox Filmed Entertainment, made the announcement on American TV. 
 
Rothman didn't stop there, though. He also revealed that the story will feature John McClane, Jr. and it's officer McClane's trip to Moscow to spring his son from jail that kicks off another fight against terrorists. 
 
Seems Mary Elizabeth Winstead's sibling Lucy McClane won't be returning, with the actress recently saying she doesn’t expect to appear in Die Hard 5 as John’s daughter. 
 
Shooting begins in January 2012 with the role of John McClane Jr. to be cast before then. 
 
Start making your excuses now boys - A Good Day To Die Hard will be released on Valentine’s Day, 14 February 2013.

Happy with the title? And who should play McLane Jr? Post below or die hard!

      Dear Mr Rothman and Mr Moore, please don't cater to the kiddies and make a 12 rated film. Please can we have lots of blood and sweary bits and shooty bits and more sweary bits. Can you also pick a decent actor to play McClane jr. We don't need another Justin Long "he's the comic relief, geddit!". Oh, also no plane surfing please, thats just a little bit 'special'.

      "Shooting begins in January 2012 with the role of John McClane Jr. to be cast before then." - I'd blo0dy hope so! It would make shooting slightly tougher if they hadn't cast anyone by that stage...

      Often thought that German viewers would have a problem with the title of every Die Hard movie. If the word Die is German for 'the' then all the titles sound a bit porny...

      Although I agree with your sentiments (though maybe not your tact) @oldirtywag I think our resident nutjob @dalidab was suggesting that talentless little tw@t Bieber should be in the new film, not that he was in the last one. Either way the fact that he even mentioned Bieber's name should result in castration. I agree that they need McTiernan to return and get it back up to an 18-rating.

      Oh please no. I liked the first one, but 4.0 was utter w@nk. Should just do the franchise a favour and put it to sleep now, rather than forcing more life out of it.

      Why is he springing his son from a Moscow prison anyway? My dad would tell me to p*ss off probably, but on the other hand my dad is not renowned for fighting international terrorists either. Also, is McClane's extended family now going to the springboard for future installments? I want to see him rescue the family goldfish from a family of pikeys at a traveling fairground. Yeesh.

      is this a joke? no seriously is this a film some kind of spoof of the original series? because no one in there right mind can think of a good day to die hard! try harder or die trying (those are the suggestions by the way not proposed titles, but now that i think even they sound better! )

      The lack of moderation on this site is as ubiquitous as the 3 star reviews. I've had my own beef with dalidab in the past, but calling an autistic person a 'nutter' is in no way acceptable. But to the subject at hand: I predict the franchise will conclude with Die Hard: Hard Death, where McClane's sick of it all and tries - but continuously fails - to off himself in increasingly imaginative and gruesome fashion. Or will it..? Doubtful.

      "daz8778 Oct 13th 2011, 10:46 shocking title!!!! they should of stopped after the 3rd movie i predict a massive flop" Why should they have stopped when the 4th movie actually made more money than the 3rd movie? Would you stop doing what you're doing when what you do would make you nearly $400 million? You don't make any sense. And I seriously doubt it'll be a massive flop, it won't be a flop at all. It'll probably make at least $300 million.

      you should probably read up on autism, quietlife. if he was just an opinionated arsehole with no mental affliction affecting his judgement or emotinal control in social conduct, you'd be perfectly justified in calling him a nutjob. but he's mentioned it often enough/it's on his twitter which has been shared/laughed about. if you're going to use a trait that he has no control over (and one he'd be offended by) you might as well refer to a regular black poster as 'resident darky', or a regular gay poster (other than dalidab) as 'resident ho'.
