US actor Bruce Willis arrived in Budapest in the company of his wife, model Emma Heming, and their baby daughter on Thursday for the shooting of “A Good Day to Die Hard”.
Willis and his family were received by the film’s Hungarian producer Adam Goodman at Liszt Ferenc International Airport. He greeted fans and the press but hid his month-old daughter Mabel Ray Willis from the cameras. He left the airport with police escort.
Work on the fifth instalment in the Die Hard franchise started in Budapest more than a week ago and the shoot in Hungary is scheduled to last for 86 days. It was originally planned to take place in the Czech Republic but was moved to Hungary.
The film’s director is Irish-born John Moore, whose past credits include Behind Enemy Lines and Max Payne, and has been scripted by Skip Woods, best known for writing the screenplay for Swordfish.
The film is planned to be released on Valentine’s Day 2013.
The story is set in Russia where the main protagonist played by Willis arrives to free his son, portrayed by Jai Courtney.
