Bruce Willis to Disrupt LAX Traffic
As a bald, 51 year-old Bruce Willis once again dons the smug grimaces and multiple bodily fluid-soaked wife-beater to reprise the role of John McClain, a put-upon ex-cop forced repeatedly into situations he did not create but must finish, airline passengers and airport workers are advised that they will be inconvenienced during filming around LAX.
Live Free or Die Hard, the 4th and most unnecessary installment of the Die Hard franchise (originally titled Die Hard IV: Back In Hot Water) will fuck shit up, trafficwise, during the following periods:
Thurs. Nov. 2 – Sun. Nov. 5; Wed. Nov. 8 – Sun. Nov. 12; and Sat. Nov. 18 – Sun. Nov. 19
During all periods, Imperial Highway is scheduled to be closed in both directions between Nash Street and Aviation Blvd. from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.; and the westbound lanes closed an additional three hours until 7 p.m.
While plot details are not known at press time, an unidentified source told us that it is “like Die Hard meets Speed but at the airport.” Futher spoiling it for potential movie-goers, the production company revealed in its letter of intent and permit applications that it will use “pyrotechnics and ’gunfire for the entire time’ of the filming and ’there will be larger explosions’ with accompanying smoke early morning of Sundays, Nov. 5 and 12.” So now that you know there will be gunfire, pyrotechnics, and “larger explosions with accompanying smoke,” you can decide whether or not to throw $11.50 at this.
When you’re stuck in traffic, you can call the PR contact Nancy Suey Castles at (310) 646-5260 just to say “hi.”
