Die Hard 5 gets a script writer

Posted by LiveFor on May 5, 2010

Looks like we could be in the wrong place at the wrong time again.

Skip Woods (Hitman, Wolverine, The A-Team) is in negotiations with Fox to write a new Die Hard movie according to Risky Biz. This would be a fifth outing for John McClane if that character makes it into the final story. The reason I say that is because it is very early days and no word on the plot yet. Add that to the fact that the PG-13 fourth film wasn’t too hot..mind you it made $378 million so there is always money in it.

If they do make a fifth one then I hope they make it the R / 18 rating.

What would you like to see in a new Die Hard film? Where will it be set? Should Bruce Willis return? If not him then who could they use in a reboot?

What could they call it? Die harderer?

Die Hard 5 – Bruce Willis says it could be out in 2011

Posted by LiveFor on February 22, 2010

While chatting to MTV’s Josh Horowitz about Kevin Smith’s Cop Out, Bruce Willis happened to mention that Officer John McClane will be be in the wrong place at the wrong time once more for Die Hard 5. He also said Len Wiseman who did Live Free or Die Hard (Die Hard 4.0) would be cool to direct it.

Vodpod videos no longer available.

What did you think of the fourth Die Hard film? If they do make a fifth what would you want to see in it?

Odysseus will find you and will kill you.

Posted by LiveFor on April 27, 2009

Warner Bros. Pictures has picked up the sword-and-sandal actioneer Odysseus according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Utilising the character from Homer’s ‘The Iliad’ and ‘The Odyssey’, the story seems to skip almost all of the events of ‘The Odyssey’ which followed the journey home from Troy of the famed king of Ithaca – That means no Circe, no Cyclops, no Sirens etc.

In this incarnation the story begins upon his arrival home, only to discover it is under the brutal occupation of an invading force. He single-handedly defeats every last man and takes back his wife, his son and his kingdom.

That makes it sound like a cross between Taken, Die Hard, 300, Rambo and Point Blank. Actually Liam Neeson would make an excellent Odysseus.

Ann Peacock penned the script and Jonathan Liebesman is attached to direct once he wraps work on “Battle: Los Angeles”. Gianni Nunnari is producing.

George Miller and Brad Pitt are also developing a futuristic outer space version of ‘The Odyssey’ for the studio that I mentioned back in October last year.

Who do you think would be good to play the hero Odysseus? Do you like the idea of using this part of the tale for a film?

8 Kilomètres, Dial Hard and Vingt-Quatre Heures are the originals. Someone call Eminem, Bruce Willis and Keifer Sutherland

Posted by LiveFor on March 19, 2009

Did you enjoy watching 8 Mile, Die Hard and 24? Did you love the originality of them all.

What if I was to say they were all based on forgotten classic films from the 1960’s and below is the proof.

You would no doubt say, “No Live for Films, they are not, you are being silly. They are in fact clever little adverts based on the 2 films and TV show you mentioned done in the style of 1960’s films. Don’t try and fool us again with your clever ruse.”

I would then say, “Oh! Look at the monkey.” I would then run off and jump into a waiting taxi.

You would be right though. However, they are nicely done spoofs, riffs, homages on the 3 classics. They are from and are ads for Stella Artois 4%. In fact they are not the full advert, they are simply teasers for the 4 minute ads which are due out next week. Cheers to Jonathan for sending them my way. Let me know what you think of them.

The clock is ticking for Jacques in ‘Vingt-Quatre Heures’

Cool poster redesigns for classic films – The Dark Knight, Die Hard, Deer Hunter, Rain Man, The Great Dictator, Indiana Jones and American History X

Posted by LiveFor on January 14, 2009

I spotted these over on /film and had to share as I think they are brilliant.

21-year old (so young and yet so talented) UK artist Olly Moss has decided to create a series of movie posters reinterperated in a kinda minimalistic post modern German-ism style.

Check out more of his work over on

Aviva Norwich Union Name Change Advert starring Bruce Willis, Elle Macpherson, Ringo Starr, Alice Cooper and more

Posted by LiveFor on December 23, 2008

Here is an advert for Aviva (they used to be Norwich Union but are changing their name to Aviva) starring a whole host of celebrities who changed their name. I like the one with todays Bruce Willis acting with his younger self in Die Hard with a Vengeance. Incidentally, the advert cost about £9,000,000 to make and Norwich Union are making me redundant in June 2009. Merry Christmas indeed. Bruce, Elle, Ringo any chance you can lend me some cash next June? Ho hum!

Discuss: Films set at Christmas that are not Christmas films?

Posted by LiveFor on December 22, 2008

Over the weekend I attended a Christmas meal laid on by the might Colin Bermingham for the few true heroes who put up the Christmas lights in Bebington Village. I was one of those heroes. Jinja was not, he was in Australia for a few weeks, but was invited anyway as he has helped out in previous years and is going to take them down in the new year.

Before the meal (which was lovely by the way), Jinja put forward a movie themed question for us to ponder and I now put it to you.

He asked, “What films can you think of that are set at Christmas but are not Christmas movie?”

At first you could be thinking, what is he talking about? Is that man insane and why are we wearing the same jumper (it wasn’t quite the same jumper, the label was slightly different. I put it down to great minds and all that).

Nonplussed I responded with a “Huh?!” and then Jinja continued, “Go on you know like Trading Places.” I had it and understood, I reached for my beer and supped deeply (Live for Films does not condone drinking alcohol kids and if you do have a drink this Christmas drink responsibly and don’t drink and drive).

Trading Places – the great comedy starring Eddie Murphy (back when he was funny) and Dan Aykroyd (back when he was thin and not selling crystal skull bottles of vodka) who play a tramp and a rich Wall Street dude respectively. Then through a bet by Dan’s mean bosses have to swap places to see if they will cope. Dan meets up with Jamie Lee Curtis’ breasts so he’s fine and Eddie Murphy laughs and shows a flare for stocks and shares. An excellent movie that is often shown on cable channels throughout the land. It also brought us the phrase “Beef Jerky Time!” which can be used for a multitude of meanings. The main point of it though is that the film is set at Christmas – there are trees and lights dotted around and Dan Aykroyd dresses as Father Christmas (Santa Claus to the American visitors to this site!) and eats a salmon through the beard (does that actually cut into his lip?), but you don’t think of it as a Christmas movie.

You’re getting the idea.

Die Hard – There’s another (as is Die Hard 2). Set at Christmas, Bruce Willis (with hair and a vest) attends his wife’s Christmas party at Nakatomi Towers. While he’s there Professor Snape / Hans Gruber and his crew of european bad guys break in, hold the partygoers hostage, and break into the safe. Snape / Gruber gives us the FBI, they send in the car, the quaterback is toast and Bruce Willis runs around the conveniently large ventilation system with no shoes on and says “Yippee Ki-Aye Muddy Funster!” while pulling glass out of his feet. Set at Christmas but not a Christmas movie.

Last one that was mentioned on the night (by my Dad no less) was It’s a Wonderful Life. Think about it. The film shows the life of George Bailey as he gets more and more ground down by Bedford Falls and his good intentions. Then when it all comes to a head he decides to kill himself to help his family. Clarence intervenes and shows George what his life has done while all around the townsfolk do a big collection for Georgie boy and all is well. Think about it. It’s not really a Christmas film, only the fact it has the huge downer and then uplifting moment with goodwill all around that has made it the seasons favourite.

There you go then. I’ve set it up now lets see what the rest of you can come up with in the comments below. Feel free to disagree with any of the above (make sure you explain why though) and put forward any other films you can think of that fall into the criteria. Something to discuss with your family as well on Christmas Day while you digest the turkey.
