Die Hard 5 Gets Halo Reach: Deliver Hope Director, Noam Murro

I’ve not enjoyed any of the Die Hard films without reservation, and the even numbered ones drove me to distraction. Nonetheless, I’m here to tell you that another is coming, and the creatives are being hired as we speak.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Skip Woods’ screenplay will be translated to the screen by Noam Murro. Murro’s first feature was Smart People, a family drama with Thomas Haden Church, Ellen Page, Dennis Quaid and not much in the way of John McClane-ery. Perhaps a more obviously compatible sample of his back catalogue is this three-minute Halo Reach promo film, Deliver Hope.

Skip Woods previously wrote Thursday, Swordfish, Hitman – but not Thursday Swordfish Hitman. Which sounds far more interesting than any of those actually were.

According to rumours, the big bad this time is a female from the Gruber family. This would test the duelling hypotheses that it’s either a) the odd number of the film or b) the inclusion of a Gruber that prevents a Die Hard film from making me want to burn down cinemas.
