Variety reports that Sebastian Koch (The Lives of Others) and relative unknown Yuliya Snigir are the next two actors to climb aboard A Good Day to Die Hard. The former will play Komorov, the latter Irina; it’s expected they’ll both play someone villainous. Kind of a given.
Directed by John Moore (Max Payne) and written by Skip Woods (Hitman, The A-Team), Five Hard takes John McClane to Russia, wherein he and his estranged son, Jack (Jai Courtney), fight to save the world “from imminent disaster.” Yippee ki-yay, motherf — *gunshot*
While I still wouldn’t be entirely opposed to a solid action film starring Bruce Willis, none of this excites me, and all of it makes me very sad; the casting of Koch, an excellent performer, would have to be the only thing of promise or even note thus far. Otherwise? I’d really just like for this movie not to happen.
A Good Day to Die Hard arrives February 14th, 2013.
Do you see any promise in this casting, or in A Good Day to Die Hard in general?
