John Moore is in negotiations with 20th Century Fox to direct Bruce Willis in Die Hard 5.
Moore was one of several directors short-listed, including Justin Lin, Nicolas Refn and Joe Cornish. Noam Murro was originally slated to direct, but left the project to direct Warner Brothers’ “300: Battle of Artemisia”.
Die Hard 5 is expected to hit theaters in 2012. “Live Free or Die Hard”, the fourth film in the franchise, was released four years ago and grossed a franchise-best $383.531M worldwide.
