Empire Magazine bagged a chat with John Moore, the director of A Good Day to Die Hard, to discuss the fifth installment of the action franchise.

While he wasn’t giving much away, Moore did reveal that fans of John McClane could expect “a couple of great gags and a couple of great McClanisms” when the film is released on Valentine’s Day 2013.

“It’s not like [he’s] this idiot, bumbling around Moscow making ‘America won the Cold War’ jokes. It’s not ‘Carry On Die Hard’, I can assure you… I don’t know whether it’s post-financial crash or whatever, but I don’t think people are in the mood for that bollocks anymore,” he said.

“People are well savvy to the cynical reheating of any product, any franchise. Any s–t won’t do. The bar’s a bit higher.”

Meanwhile, Moore said the film, which will mostly be set in Moscow, would not skimp on action either.

“There’s a car chase through Moscow that’s taking us 78 days to shoot,” he added.

A Good Day to Die Hard stars Bruce Willis, Jai Courtney, Sebastian Koch, Yulia Snigir, Cole Hauser, Amaury Nolasco, Megalyn Echikunwoke and Anne Vyalitsyn.

Hi all. I'm Bash and love anything and everything to do with Star Wars. Although I've watched hundreds of movies, read dozens of books and played numerous computer games from other genres and franchises since, nothing has come close to seeing George Lucas' epic for the very first time. I hope you all like the site and come back often.
