Long and Q Join Cast of 4th "Die Hard"

Justin LongJustin Long and Maggie Q have singed on to star in "Live Free or Die Hard," 20th Century Fox's fourth installment of the "Die Hard" series, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Len Wiseman (the "Underworld" films) will direct while Bruce Willis is reprising his role as John McClane.

The story centers on an Internet-based terrorist organization who is systematically shutting down the United States. The mysterious figure behind the scheme has figured out every digital angle but never counts on an old-fashioned "analog" McClane.

Long ("Accepted," "Jeepers Creepers" and the Mac in Apple Computer's latest ads) will play a smart, younger guy who assists McClane. Q ("Mission: Impossible III") will play a world-class hacker at odds with McClane.

Production on the 4th "Die Hard" begins this month.  -- Shannon Nolley
