Jai Courtney will play the son of John McClane (Bruce Willis) in the next installment of the Die Hard francise.

Courtney, best known for his role in Spartacus: Blood and Sand, will play John (Jack) McClane, Jr. in A Good Day To Die Hard, according to 20th Century Fox co-chair and CEO Tom Rothman.

The fifth film in the Die Hard series will see father and son as two fish out of water in Moscow as they work together to keep each other alive against local forces.

The film begins production this April, for a February 14, 2013 release.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
