It was just two days ago that we got word that “Die Hard 5″ may be heading to Russia with a new director and now new details have emerged as to who may be directing John McClane in the next installment.

According to Deadline, a short-list of potential directors have been revealed including Joe Cornish (“Attack the Block”), Justin Lin (“Fast Five”), John Moore (“Max Payne”) and Nicolas Winding Refn (the upcoming film “Drive”).

And expect the occasional “Yippee ki-yay, mutherfucker!” line to be said a couple of times because Skip Woods (“X-Men: Origins”, “A-Team”) is attached to write the of now.

Rumors are going around that in DH5, McClane and his son will be traveling to Russia. No love for his daughter Lucy who was played by Mary Elizabeth Winstead in “Live Free or Die Hard” I take it? Some people enjoyed her in part four, so I don’t see why she can’t come back, but if the rumors of McClane and son heading to Russia are true, then I guess there’s really no need for the daughter role. What type of “Die Hard” movie are we going to be watching if there’s some family reunion at the end?

    Cornish, Refn, or even Lin would be awesome, but I would rather not see Moore take the helm, mostly because MAX PAYNE was so incredibly atrocious.

      That’s probably why Moore will get the job. He’s the safe choice.
