Cult filmmaker Kevin Smith is all set to portray master hacker The Warlock in the new Die Hard movie.
The Clerks director will be seen starring alongside Bruce Willis, Timothy Olyphant, and Justin Long in Live Free or Die Hard, the fourth instalment of the action film franchise.
"I'm exposition guy. Like, I'm the dude who gives them all sorts of information," Contactmusic quoted him as telling moviehole.net.
Smith also said that director Len Wiseman was not planning any big surprises for Die Hard fans, and that he just wanted to make the new flick as good as the other three movies in the series.
"That seemed to be a running note that they would give themselves on set. With any particular line they would go, 'That's not Die Hard, let's make it more Die Hard," he added.
Smith further said that he was really very impressed with the Underworld filmmaker’s on-set techniques.
"Len Wiseman is a good director, in as much as he'll shoot 180 different angles of the same scene. Me, I'd have been done with that scene in one day. I would have set up one camera, it would have happened in front of it, and we would have been done," he said.
