A GOOD DAY TO DIE HARD Director John Moore to Helm Pierce Brosnan Actioner I.T.

     August 26, 2014


Pierce Brosnan returns to the thriller genre this weekend with The November Man, and now another action-oriented picture of his has landed a director.  Deadline reports that A Good Day to Die Hard helmer John Moore has been tapped to direct I.T., which will star Brosnan as a publisher who is tormented via technology when his relationship with a young I.T. consultant goes south.  Moreover, William Wisher Jr. (Terminator 2, The 13th Warrior) has been tapped to rewrite the screenplay for the Voltage Films picture, which was originally penned by Dan Kay.  In addition to the atrocious A Good Day to Die Hard, Moore’s directing credits also include Max Payne and Behind Enemy Lines.

Producers are currently looking to cast the antagonist role—that of the dreaded I.T. consultant—in anticipation of beginning production on the thriller this fall.  Brosnan is also attached to star in a November Man sequel if the first film does well in theaters, so it’s certainly clear that the actor is game for heading up more action oriented roles in the near future.

    After demolishing the Die Hard series, how on Earth does the guy (John Moore) responsible for it get another good job, let alone any job in Hollywood?

    • Vladimir Putin

      Because no matter how bad most of his movies are, they were successful, hence he still gets to work in Hollywood.

      You took the words right out of my mouth, he is an utterly horrible director. I can’t see this being any exception.

    • mattinacan

      he is an awful studio yes man director, like brett ratner, mcg etc. you bring him in to complete studio projects on time within budget, and they don’t care if it is crap – which it will be.

        Brett Ratner is fine director.

      • mattinacan

        completely mediocre and forgettable, yes

        I kind of agree. People like to stick him with the “poor man’s Michael Bay” tag, but I definitely think he’s more competent than that.

        Blasphemy, he is putrid and the only reason of success for X3 was the fact that it rode the success of X2 and nobody knew how horrible it was going into it.

      • Steven

        Ratner made ‘Rush Hour’ though. Those movies rocked.

    This guy’s filmography is horrid.

    As an IT consultant, I take offense to this premise. But I do have the ability to destroy my clients if they annoy me enough! (Maniacal Laugh! Maniacal Laugh!)

  • Chippah

    John Moore is goddamn fucking terrible.

  • nelson

    John Moore is a shit director.

  • Lee Harvey Cobblepot

    John Moore has made nothing even remotely watchable. His films are Paul WS Anderson and Simon West level bad. I don’t understand how he keeps getting high profile jobs.

    I had temp dyslexia and thought Pierce Brosnan was co-starring in an action movie with the rapper T.I. for a second.

  • Drake

    Has John Moore ever made a good movie?

  • One of Nine

    After his part in the downfall of Die Hard, no thanks.
