Model Anne Vyalitsyna To Make Her Acting Debut In A Good Day To Die Hard

John Moore is out to prove that Michael Bay isn't the only director who can give supermodels their big break in the film industry.

Variety reports that Russian-born model Anne Vyalitsyna has landed her first acting gig and is set to appear alongside Bruce Willis in A Good Day to Die Hard, the fourth sequel in the Die Hard franchise. The movie sees John McClane being forced to fly to Russia in order to help his imprisoned son, Jack, get out of jail. While John is successful in that task, while overseas he discovers a terrorist plot and teams with Jack to stop the threat. Jai Courtney is set to play Jack, while Amaury Nolasco, Megalyn Echikunwoke, Cole Hauser, Sebastian Koch and Yulia Snigir are all attached as well.

The film is currently in production and will be making its debut in theaters on February 14, 2013. The script was written by Skip Woods, who previously wrote films such as X-Men Origins: Wolverine, Hitman, Sowrdfish, and The A-Team. This movie will be Moore's fifth feature, having previously directed Behind Enemy Lines, Flight of the Phoenix, the Omen remake, and Max Payne.

While Vyalitsyna has never acted before, she is known for her work modeling for Victoria's Secret and has appeared in the last eight Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issues. The trade does not say what kind of role she will be playing in the movie, but given her nationality one can bet that she will be playing one of the locals.
