[Movies] John Moore Discusses A Good Day to Die Hard Posted by George H. Sirois on 07.26.2012
He wants to keep the humor to a minimum…
Empire Online spoke with director John Moore on the upcoming fifth installment of the Die Hard franchise: A Good Day to Die Hard. The film will star Bruce Willis, Jai Courtney, Sebastian Koch, Yulia Snigir, Cole Hauser, Amaury Nolasco, Megalyn Echikunwoke and Anne Vyalitsyn.
Here are some highlights of the interview:
On keeping the humor to a minimum: "There are a couple of great gags and a couple of great McClanisms. It's not like [he's] this idiot, bumbling around Moscow making ‘America won the Cold War' jokes. It's not 'Carry On Die Hard', I can assure you... I don't know whether it's post-financial crash or whatever, but I don't think people are in the mood for that bollocks anymore. People are well savvy to the cynical reheating of any product, any franchise. Any s--t won't do. The bar's a bit higher."
On the scope of the film: "The scope along goes from New York to Moscow. It's very, very international. There's a car chase through Moscow that's taking us 78 days to shoot."
