It appears that 20th Century Fox has selected Noam Murro to direct Die Hard 5. According to both deadline.com and The Hollywood Reporter, Murro has been chosen to direct from a script by Skip Woods.
And who the heck is Noam Murro [I hear you ask]? Well, Murro has garnered five DGA nominations for commercials – impressing with the recent spectacular campaign for the Halo videogame – and took two Golden Lions at Cannes. He also directed Smart People [starring Dennis Quaid, Sarah Jessica Parker and Ellen Page] for Miramax.
Since Bruce Willis has expressed interest in playing John McClane one more time – and considering his terrific performance in last year’s RED – and woods has done a few interesting scripts [Thursday, Hitman], I’m thinking that a fifth Die Hard movie might just be a good idea.
