Title & Details Revealed for ‘Die Hard 5: A Good Day to Die Hard’

There you have it. The title for the fifth (and hopefully final) chapter in the Die Hard franchise will be A Good Day to Die Hard. Before you get up in geeky arms, remember how much everyone hated the title Live Free or Die Hard when it was first announced, and there were plenty of folks that enjoyed that flick.

We’re hoping that this next flick won’t be social commentary pitting John McClane against the internet, but from what we’re getting from SlashFilm, it looks like things are getting a bit international.

The story is set in Russia and begins with John McClane heading to Moscow to sweet talk some cops into letting his apparently-wayward son out of jail for something he did, but when he gets there, things surrounding his son’s arrest are not as they appear and world-threatening terrorist hijinks ensue.

Wait, McClane has a son now? Where was he when everything was going down in Live Free? Or maybe the studio just decided to give Mary Elizabeth Winstead a sex change since the last we checked in with the McClanes.

You can expect to hear more, especially who Fox is looking to cast as McClane Jr., when the film starts shooting next January. The studio is currently looking at a Valentine’s Day 2013 release, which will be just in time for guys to drag their girlfriends to see an action flick.

    McClane had a son in the first film.  They were orginally going to have his sone in DH4, but chose to go with the daughter.
