The Live Free or Die Hard director will helm the new CBS pilot It seems that CBS has found a director for their upcoming remake pilot and he comes from the feature film world. IESB.net is reporting that filmmaker Len Wiseman has come aboard to direct the pilot for CBS' reboot Hawaii Five-O.

Wiseman will direct a growing cast that includes Alex O'Loughlin, who will play the lead of Steve McGarrett, Taryn Manning, who will play Mary Ann McGarrett, Steve's sister, and Daniel Dae Kim, who will play Detective Chin Ho Kelly. The show is a remake of the highly successful Hawaii Five-O series that ran on CBS from 1968 to 1980.

The pilot comes from Fringe creators Roberto Orci and Alex Kurtzman, along with CSI: NY executive producer Peter Lenkov, who wrote the pilot script based on a story that Lenkov, Orci and Kurtzman all conceived together. All three will serve as executive producers on the pilot.

Wiseman last directed the 2007 action sequel Live Free or Die Hard.
