'A Good Day to Die Hard' Photo with Bruce Willis and Jai Courtney

John McClane and his estranged son Jack work together to stop a Moscow terrorist threat in this upcoming sequel.
We showed you a number of set photos while the 20th Century Fox action sequel A Good Day to Die Hard was in production, but we haven't seen much of Jai Courtney, the young actor who plays the son of John McClane (Bruce Willis). Today, we have the first official photo featuring both John McClane and his estranged son Jack, who must team up in Moscow to stop a nefarious Russian leader. Take a look at the photo, and read on to see what Jai Courtney had to say about the sequel.

A Good Day to Die Hard Photo

The actor first spoke about the personality differences between father and son in this new adventure.

"The relationship isn't always functional. These are two guys who have been estranged for some time. John likes to wing it, see what happens. Jack's more of a strategist."


He also spoke about how the ante is upped even further by placing these two in the unfamiliar environment of Moscow.

"That's the thing about the Die Hard franchise, John's always a fish out of water. What could be further out of water for him than Russia?"


When asked about the bad guys that the McClane's square off against, sadly, Jai Courtney wouldn't divulge any details.

"I can't say much about the villains without giving it away."

A Good Day to Die Hard was released February 14th, 2013 and stars Bruce Willis, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Jai Courtney, Yuliya Snigir, Patrick Stewart, Megalyn Echikunwoke, Cole Hauser, Anne Vyalitsyna. The film is directed by John Moore.

    In the first film his son was named John McClane Jr. How come now his name is Jack?

    I looked him up and the original boy was only ten when the first film was out. That's it, he never acted again.

    @the-crow2k I agree John Moore has no direction with his films, always end up sloppy and predictable, not much talent that guy.....I would rather have seen Michael Bay direct this and watch mindless/absurd action

    Last time they used the daughter to sort of step in for the mother. This time it's the son. They don't actually have to add a family issue in their. The films will do fine without them.
