John Moore is very proud of the car chase in 'A Good Day To Die Hard'.

The director was determined to film as many stunts as he could live without relying on CGI to create the explosions and thrills in the movie - which sees Bruce Willis reprise his role as John McClane for a fifth time.

John was most pleased with how the epic car chase - which took 78 days to shoot and sees McClane drive a Mercedes-Benz G-Wagen as he chases a military tank through the streets of Russia - turned out on the big screen

Bruce Willis is a ''very good dad'' and acted like a father figure on the set of 'A Good Day To Die Hard'.

The 57-year-old actor has four children - nine-month-old daughter Mabel with his wife Emma Heming Willis, and grown-up kids, Rumer, 24, Scout, 21, and Tallulah, 19, with his ex-wife Demi Moore - and he used his parental skills to help his co-star Jai Courtney while shooting the action sequel.

Speaking at the movie's premiere at the Empire cinema in London's Leicester Square on Thursday night (07.02.13), the film's director John Moore told BANG Showbiz: ''Bruce and Jai got on like a hose on fire on set. Bruce is a very good dad in real life, he's very protective of his kids and very decent and very realistic. He keeps things very real with his own family. He was very fatherly to Jai on set. He's a decent guy, and Jai being Australian has a great sense of humour so they worked well together.''

Die Hard Director Defends Son Twist


John Moore Jai Courtney Bruce Willis

John Moore has branded claims Jai Courtney appears in 'A Good Day to Die Hard' to extend the franchise as ''bulls**t''.

The director insists the actor's casting as John McClane's son Jack was a ''naturally occurring story'' and he knows lead star Bruce Willis wouldn't put up with such a ''cynical'' plot device if it had been deliberately created for such purposes.

John said: ''Let me tell you this, God's honest truth, Bruce wouldn't stand for any of that cynical bulls**t. This was a story that Bruce pitched to us, he said, 'I think in this 'Die Hard' it will be good to go find my son.'

DIE HARD 5: A Good Day to Die Hard will be the next movie in the action franchise, with Bruce Willis once again reprising his role as crime fighter John MCClane. The forthcoming movie, planned for release on Valentine's Day 2013, will see MCClane face his toughest challenge yet, reports the Press Association.

Directed by Max Payne's John Moore, Die Hard 5 is expected to begin filming in Russia in January next year. The movie will follow MCClane and his son as they become involved in a prison escape. A statement by 20th Century Fox said, "Since the first Die Hard in 1988, John MCClane has found himself in the wrong place at the wrong time, with the skills and attitude to always be the last man standing, making him enemy number one for terrorists the world over". Despite initial reservations ahead of its release, the fourth movie 'Live Free or Die Hard' was met with positive reviews and featured MCClane going up against a group of cyber-terrorists. The fifth film looks to feature John's sternest challenge yet, with the statement noting, ".when his estranged son Jack is caught up in the daring prison escape of a rogue Russian leader, and father and son MCClane must work together to keep each other alive and keep the world safe for democracy".
