Noam Murro is going to direct Die Hard 5. Let that roll around in your head for a while. If you’re like me, you don’t even recognize the name. It’s okay. I had to look it up. Murro directed the fairly average, not quite as annoying as it could have been indie dramedy Smart People a few years back.
Now, he’s going to be directing Die Hard 5.
According to Deadline Gary, the newcomer/commercial veteran impressed Fox with his ad campaign for Halo: Reach. Check it out for yourself and see if you’re equally impressed:
So the guy can do action, and it’ll be refreshing to see a newer face in filmmaking take on an ancient franchise that’s only recently picked up steam. Back when the movie was announced, we offered 5 plot lines for the project, but it remains to be seen whether Fox will choose any of them (or if Bruce Willis will actually sign on to make it). He’s spoken positively about it in the past, meaning that we’ll probably be seeing John McClane fighting even more ridiculous levels of crime.
