Fox film CEO Tim Rothman is quoted as following in the article:
"If we do it right and we introduce a new personality, that does open it up for the future...that's going to be a casting challenge," Rothman said in a radio interview on Wednesday (Oct. 12). "We gotta get just the right guy."
Of the actors reading so far, my choice is Ben Foster but he's far from my ideal choice and I don't believe he'll have the star power to lead a franchise. If I had my choice I'd go with Chris Pine (Star Trek, Unstoppable). Who would you guys like to see in the role of Jack McClane?
