Whether you want one or not, you should know that another film (the 5th) in the Die Hard franchise is in development; actually, it's beyond "in development;" Principal photography is already underway in Europe, with a February 12, 2013 release scheduled.

I already said previously that I think the marketing for this flick has been a tad too much. You'd think the film was opening this weekend; nope - we still have almost a month to go, which means, another 3+ weeks of more photos, behind-the-scenes featurettes, clips, 7th, 8th, and 9th trailers, poster art, etc.

I think I speak for the rest of the S&A crew when I say that we're fans of Lance Reddick's work; most will likely remember him from his role in HBO's hit series The Wire, or maybe most recently, from Fringe.
