John McTiernan Takes Some 'Shrapnel'
Do you like John McTiernan's throw pillows? Well do you?! John McTiernan, the director of Die Hard and Predator, has signed on to Shrapnel, what will be his first film since 2003. The story is about two war veterans who hunt each other in a lethal game of cat and mouse. Evan Daugherty's action-thriller script was on the 2008 Blacklist, and that's even without a warrior alien as part of the cat and mouse plotline. It'll be nice to see McTiernan back behind the camera, even though his last few films have been way less than Die Hard-y. The director has been busy getting into sh*t with the government over the infamous Anthony Pellicano wiretapping scandal of 2006. His experience is a testament to why you never bug your wife's phone. Or your best friend's wife's phone. Even if her come-hither stares say, "Bug my phone." (Variety)
