Oh, for the love of…  Sigh.  Because Die Harder, Die Hard with a Vengeance, and Live Free or Die Hard weren’t stupid enough titles for unnecessary sequels to a great film (and, let’s face it, Die Hard itself is kind of a goofy title, too), it was announced today by Fox CEO Tom Rothman that Die Hard 5 will be entitled A Good Day to Die Hard.  Seriously.  A… Good… Day… to… Die… Hard.  A group of grown men and women, adults, came up with and approved of that title for a film.   Really.

And, like just about every single other film in the franchise (except for Die Hard with a Vengeance) the film is about how a member of Bruce Willis’ immediate family is kidnapped and held hostage by a group of terrorist bad guys, and only The Bald One can get said family member back.  Because, you know, INTERPOL’s probably busy or something, I guess.

That’s the title of the John Moore-directed sequel, which finds Willis’ John McClane traveling to Russia to rescue his son, John McClane Jr., then getting entangled in yet another high-octane adventure in a place where “nothing is as it seems.”

So this should be pretty interesting, despite the fact that it sounds exactly like the Liam Neeson film Taken, but, hey, whatever.  With a title like A Good Day to Die Hard, this thing has gotta be so bad it’s good.  Right?  Right?  I mean, it’s got to be, right?

What do you think of the Die Hard news?
