Movement on "Die Hard 5" has just gotten another shot in the arm with news that commercial director Noam Murro will helm the popular series' fourth follow-up, according to Deadline. The announcement comes less than a day after it was revealed star Bruce Willis was personally vetting potential candidates.

The Israeli-born Murro, who counts the 2008 indie flick "Smart People" as his only feature credit, has been nominated five times by the Directors' Guild of America for his commercial work, and reportedly impressed Fox execs with his recent ads for the video game "Halo."

Although not yet officially signed on, Willis has been enthusiastically talking up the possibility of returning as the perpetually beleaguered, often hungover, sometimes foulmouthed John McClane since "Live Free or Die Hard" opened in 2007. After going from trapped in a building to trapped in an airport in the first two "Die Hard" installments, Willis told MTV News he's eager to continue the recent trend of expanding the series' canvas.

"Well it's got to go worldwide," Willis said. "That would be my contribution to [the next movie]."

Tentatively titled "Die Hard 24/7," the sequel was written by Skip Woods, who previously penned big budget actioners "The A-Team" and "X-Men Origins: Wolverine." According to a statement Willis made in October, the flick is expected to begin filming sometime in 2011.

Although Willis has starred in four "Die Hard" flicks, the Hollywood vet has said that bringing the laughs is much more important than lighting up the big screen.

"But I like so much more making fun of it, taking the piss out of it and not making it a big deal. Not making the fact that I've acted in a lot of movies a big deal," he said. " It's all illusion and it's all bulls--t and it's a great job for me to have, but everything else you can set on fire. Making people laugh is the real deal."

If anybody knows that the world isn't perfect, it's singer/songwriter The-Dream. Last year, the man behind hit songs by everyone from Mariah Carey ("Touch My Body") to Rihanna ("Umbrella") said he was retiring as an artist, vowing to abide by a threat he'd been teasing about for some time.

"It's the last album, period," The-Dream told MTV News with regard to his Love King project. "I really would like it to be the last one if I could — in a perfect world."

Things haven't exactly gone smooth for The-Dream since that time. He divorced singer/actress Christina Milian amid allegations of adultery and revealed that he thought about suicide during the aftermath of the breakup.

But now, the Grammy-winning producer has revealed that he is hard at work on a new solo effort.

"Everybody's calling for an album now, so I should have one out by August," The-Dream told former MTV host Quddus on Wednesday before the Los Angeles premiere of Justin Bieber's new movie, "Never Say Never."

As of press time, no album title or release date had been confirmed by The-Dream's label, Def Jam Records. The singer, whose own credits include "Nikki," "Rockin' That Thang" and "Make Up Bag," also was hush regarding details.

The-Dream did reveal to Quddus that he's working on Bieber's next record, along with Danja, Kevin Cossom and Kanye West.

"I've been writing, just to get ready," he said about the teen sensation's upcoming effort. He teased that the sound of the new material was "somewhere between Fergie and Jesus, somewhere in between there. If I can get away with edgy, I would love it."

The-Dream also recently hit the studio with reality star Kim Kardashian, with whom he recorded the catchy single "Turn It Up."

Are you excited that The-Dream is working on a new album and collaborating with Justin Bieber? Tell us in the comments.
