A Good Day to Die Hard Gets Longer Director's Cut

More Action and Story for John McClane

The theatrical version of A Good Day to Die Hard runs only 97 minutes and that means that you get a compact action spectacle that lacks in all other aspects according to many critics. Especially the logic of the story was a target point.

The film magazine Empire now reports that director John Moore (Max Payne, Behind Enemy Lines) works on a Director's Cut that will run substantially longer than the theatrical version. It's supposed to include not only more plot but action, as well. Empire explicitly mentions the car chase:

Empire: [John Moore is] going over two separate versions of the movie [...] One version of the movie is Moore's Director's Cut, which will be substantially longer than the 97 minute-long theatrical version, with the Moscow-levelling car chase around "30%" longer.

The interview itself is very interesting (although it contains spoilers) because Moore gives you the impression that Bruce Willis had control over the film and not the director, which means that the many bad reviews should be pointed at Willis. It remains to be seen how the DC works out here. It'll probably come out in the summer.
