A Good Day to Die Hard

A Good Day to Die Hard: Russian actress Yuliya Snigir wants to remind us that A Good Day to Die Hard is set in Russia, as John McClane (Bruce Willis) travels to Moscow to help his son (Jai Courtney) out of a jam. Mary Elizabeth Winstead returns as McClane’s daughter; the movie will be released on February 15. [Emileeid via Collider]

Love & Mercy: Paul Dano (There Will Be Blood, Ruby Sparks) is set to star in Love & Mercy, a biopic about Brian Wilson, the troubled creative genius of the fabled music group the Beach Boys. Bill Pohlad (Tree of Life producer) will direct. The story encompasses decades in the life of the musician; Dano will play the younger version of Wilson, with another actor still to be cast as the older version. [The Hollywood Reporter]

The Town That Dreaded Sundown: Ryan Murphy, who created both Glee and American Horror Story, is expanding his feature film portfolio as a producer. He’s teaming with Jason Blum (Paranormal Activity) to remake Charles B. Pierce’s 1976 movie The Town That Dreaded Sundown, with a script by Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa (Carrie remake). Alfonso Gomez-Rejon is in negotiations to direct what Murphy describes as a “modern-day… weird, meta thing.” The original was ostensibly based on the real story of a serial killer in 1946.

Red 2 Trailer: Bruce Willis, Helen Mirren, John Malkovich and Mary-Louise Parker return in Red 2, which finds old secret agent friends pitted against each other in a sequel that promises more action -- and even more wisecracks than the original, with Anthony Hopkins, Catherine Zeta-Jones and Byung Hun Lee added to the cast. Dean Parisot (Galaxy Quest) directs; the movie is due out on August 2. [The Film Stage]
