‘A Good Day to Die Hard’ Dials Down the Humor Says Director John Moore

A Good Day to Die Hard will have less humor says director John Moore There is still much we don't know about A Good Day to Die Hard, currently shooting in Eastern Europe, aside from the fact that John McClane (Bruce Willis) and his son Jack (Jai Courtney) try to avert an international crisis in Moscow. Director John Moore (Max Payne, The Omen) shed some light on the production, revealing that he is downplaying the level of humor in this new action-adventure. Here's what he had to say, when asked if this follow-up will feautre any classic John McClane jokes.

"No, because that's preposterous! 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 shit won't do. The bar's a bit higher. 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."

The filmmaker also teased an epic car chase scene through Moscow, a sequence that is taking up a great deal of their production schedule.

"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. So, yeah. That should answer your question!"

A Good Day to Die Hard was released February 14th, 2013.
