Courtney reportedly beat out fellow Aussie (and "Hunger Games" star) Liam Hemsworth for the part. Courtney most recently filmed "One Shot," with Tom Cruise and is also attached to star opposite Aaron Eckhart in "I, Frankenstein."
The film won't start shooting right away, but it already has a release date: February 14, 2013. The fifth "Die Hard" installment will find the McClanes in Moscow, with dad apparently arriving to save junior from a terrorist plot. It seems there are no plans to bring back McClane's daughter Lucy (played by Mary Elizabeth Winstead), who was introduced in 2007's "Live Free or Die Hard."
