Let’s face it: the “Die Hard” movies are only as good as their bad guys. I don’t know if Cole Hauser has a Hans Gruber in him, but hey, maybe he’ll be able to do a better job than Thomas Gabriel, the villain in the last “Die Hard” movie played by Timothy Olyphant. (You won’t find a bigger Olyphant fan than me, but sheesh, a computer hacker as your “Die Hard” villain? Meh.)
Word has Hauser landing the role of Collins, a villain in “A Good Day to Die Hard”, the latest entry in the never-say-die action franchise starring Bruce Willis as New York supercop John McClane. This time around, McClane ends up in Moscow, where he must locate his estranged adult son played by “Spartacus’” Jai Courtney and, once again, save the world.
I haven’t a clue when McClane found the time between constantly saving the world and Justin Long to end up with an adult son. I know he had an adult daughter (Mary Elizabeth Winstead played her in “Live Free or Die Hard”), but the son thing is news to me.
Incidentally, this is the third time Hauser has worked with Willis (“Tears of the Sun” and “Hart’s War” being the other two), and it looks like all three films will involve lots of men with guns trying to kill each other. I’m sure it’s just coincidence.
John Moore (“Max Payne”) will direct.
