Die Hard is becoming a bit more of a family affair with the fifth installment, A Good Day To Die Hard. While we’ve seen John McLane’s ex-wife and kids before, they’ve never been fully involved in fighting the bad guys, but now his estranged son Jack (Jai Courtney) is taking on his father’s mantle.
The film sees father and son having to team up in Moscow to stop a nefarious Russian leader. Along with the image, EW has come comments from Jai Courtney about the movie. Talking about the father/son dynamic, he says, “The relationship isn’t always functional. These are two guys who have been estranged for some time. John likes to wing it, see what happens. Jack’s more of a strategist.”
While talking about the Moscow setting, he says, “That’s the thing about the Die Hard franchise, John’s always a fish out of water. What could be further out of water for him than Russia?”
The film will be out February 13th 2013.
