The Motion Picture Association of America has given the action sequel "A Good Day to Die Hard" an R rating, ending concerns that the fifth film would be rated PG-13 like the last one was.
The script by Skip Woods takes place primarily in Russia, where hero John McClane (Bruce Willis) must rescue his son Jack (Aussie actor Jai Courtney) taking out terrorists at every turn.
Cole Hauser will play a villain named Collins aiding Sebastian Koch (The Lives of Others) and Russian actress Yuliya Snigir in some way or another. Amaury Nolasco ("Prison Break") will play Willis' friend early in the film. Megalyn Echikunwoke also stars. Mary Elizabeth Winstead will reprise her role as Lucy McClane in a cameo. Winstead played the role in 2007's under-appreciated "Live Free or Die Hard".
