Twentieth Century Fox has been trying to put together Die Hard 5 (working title) since late 2009, when franchise star Bruce Willis revealed that "Fox is already talking about doing another one." Willis added that the studio "better get it done soon" because, he admitted, "I'm not getting any younger." Years later, the studio finally has their director.
The same was said in February, when Fox hired Smart People director Noam Murro to helm the sequel, but when Murro landed the directing job for Warner Brothers' 300 sequel, 300: Battle of Artemisia (formerly Xerxes), Murro had to drop out of Die Hard 5, leaving the director's chair open for Max Payne director John Moore to "take or leave." In the end, Moore took. "Moore" about Die hard 5 >> Posted 09.01.11 by Ryan
Live Free or Die Hard (LFODH) was both a hit at the box office and with critics so it's no wonder that Twentieth Century Fox has a sequel in the works. However, it's been really slow going on Die Hard 5 (working title) so far. Fox hired Skip Woods (The A-Team) to write the screenplay, but the studio apparently had problems with early drafts and asked Woods to go "back to the drawing board." Then, despite series star Bruce Willis' desire to see LFODH director Len Wiseman return to helm the sequel, Fox hired Noam Murro (Smart People) instead. Now, Twitch has reported that Murro's work on the sequel to 300, 300: Battle of Artemisia (formerly Xerxes), has forced him to drop out as director of Die Hard 5. According to Twitch, the director's chair is now John Moore's (Max Payne) "to take or leave." more about Die Hard 5 >> Posted 08.01.11 by BrentJS
Universal has had directors lined up to take the helm of the adaptation Ouija, based on Hasbro's board game that supposedly allows players to talk to ghosts and spirits. According to THR, directors Pierre Morel (Taken), Sylvain White (The Losers), Scott Stewart (Legion), and John Moore (Max Payne) have all failed to land the gig, which leaves Universal to decide between two other directors who are vying for the job — McG and Breck Eisner (The Crazies). Eisner reportedly pitched his take to the studio last week before McG's Friday presentation and Universal is taking the holidays to think through their decision.
