It’s done. After a long search and tense negotiations, Bruce Willis and 20th Century Fox have decided to just go with John Moore for Die Hard 5 after all.

Originally, Noam Murro was hired to film a 75-year old John McClan fighting bad guys in Russia. However, he jumped ship to direct the much more shirtless 300: Battle Of Artemisia. Then, the studio made the offer to Moore (Max Payne, The Omen) but Bruce Willis wasn’t completely sold. A few directors were brought into consideration, including Attack the Block’s Joe Cornish, Drive’s Nicolas Winding Refn, and Fast Five’s Justin Lin. Ultimately, Moore won over Willis with his ability to stage and shoot practical, non CGI-heavy action scenes without crashing the budget by vaulting a flaming car into it. (Deadline)

‘Ice Road Truckers’ 3D Film Could Be a Thing http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/ice-road-truckers-3d-film-could-be-a-thing/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/ice-road-truckers-3d-film-could-be-a-thing/#comments Wed, 30 Nov -0001 00:00:00 +0000 John Moore (Max Payne) wants to direct a 3D adaptation of the History Channel reality series "Ice Road Truckers." Taylor Lautner bailed on his Northern Lights aviation project, and now Moore says, "F*ck planes. I want big rigs." Him and a writer that he wouldn't name (because of the Russians) pitched a take to Fox studios that made their genitals tingle. That's usually the precursor to a greenlight. "It is very much a tough guy movie," Moore said. "Here's a bunch of characters who tackle problems by getting in there and getting things done. We'll turn it into a mission movie that harkens back to Towering Inferno, Jaws, or The Guns of Navarone. You got a problem, go solve it."So characters will be going into places and doing stuff and overcoming obstacles and then coming out of the places they went into, but in the cold and with 18-Wheelers carrying supplies for diamond miners and in 3D. I honestly have nothing snarky to say about that. Sounds like a good idea that's rife with conflict. Add ice to anything and chances of a fail increase exponentially. It's science. Or a smoothie. (Deadline)
