'Die Hard 5,' which finds John McClane in Russia, needs a new director and 20th Century Fox has reportedly come up with a short list that includes the directors of indies 'Attack the Block' and 'Drive.'

In addition to Joe Cornish ('Attack the Block') and Nicolas Winding Refn ('Drive'), the studio is looking at Justin Lin ('Fast Five'), and John Moore ('Max Payne'). While all the other directors have plenty of experience, Cornish's urban alien invasion flick was his first film, and he might seem an odd choice for such a huge franchise.

Then again, Noam Murro, the director originally attached to the as-yet-untitled fifth film, only had the indie comedy 'Smart People' under his belt before being tapped for the job. He's opted to direct another big sequel instead, '300: Battle Of Artemisia.'
