Sebastian Koch (The Lives of Others) and Russian actress Yulia Snigir have joined Bruce Willis and Jai Courtney (Spartacus: Blood and Sand) in A Good Day to Die Hard. The latest installment in the Die Hard franchise will reportedly take place in Moscow with John McClane and his estranged son Jack (Courtney) trying “to keep each other alive and the world safe for democracy.” Remember when McClane was a police officer trying to stop criminals? Yes, they were super-criminals, but his mission didn’t involve saving the world. According to Variety, “Koch will play Komorov, while Snigir will play Irina. Both roles are believed to be villainous in nature.” Seriously, does anyone consider Russia a threat anymore? Are McClane n’ Son trying to stop the Red Menace?
John Moore (Max Payne) will direct from a script by Skip Woods (Hitman). A Good Day to Die Hard is slated to open on February 14, 2013.
