JewReview.net is reporting that Jeffrey Wright (upcoming Casino Royale, Syriana) has been cast as the villain in 20th Century Fox’s Live Free or Die Hard, currently filming in Baltimore.

The fourth film of the action franchise will feature John McClane (Bruce Willis) attempting to stop a techno-terrorist from shutting down the nation’s computer systems on the Fourth of July. The story takes place around Washington, D.C.

Justin Long and Maggie Q co-star in the Len Wiseman-directed film, hitting theaters on June 29.
