20th Century Fox today set release dates for a number of it’s upcoming films, most notably Taken 2, Die Hard 5, and the Percy Jackson sequel.
Taken 2, starring Liam Neeson, Famke Janssen and Maggie Grace will be hitting on October 5, 2012. Olivier Megaton (Colombiana) is directing, and filming is scheduled to begin in October. No story details have been revealed, but earlier this year it was mentioned part of the movie would be shot in Istanbul, so some of the action will likely be set there.
Bruce Willis will return as John McClane once again in A Good Day To Die Hard (Die Hard 5), which will hit screens February 14, 2013. John Moore (Max Payne) will direct and the film will be set mostly in Russia with John McClane accompanied there by his son, where the two become drawn into a conflict with local forces.
Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters will open March 27, 2013 and Logan Lerman, Brandon T. Jackson and Alexandra Daddario are expected to return. Thor Freudenthal (Diary of a Wimpy Kid) will direct while Chris Columbus, who directed the first film, will produce. The second novel by Rick Riordan follows Percy and his group of friends as they head to the titular sea to find the mythical Golden Fleece and to free a friend who has been captured there.
