Director John McTiernan working on a film despite upcoming jail time

03.18.2013

A little jail time is not going to stop director John McTiernan from putting together projects.

Despite a one-year sentence, the "Free John McTiernan!" page on Facebook announced that the helmer is currently busy working on a script for a film titled, WARBIRDS. This is what was posted on the page:

Exclusive news from Free John Mctiernan! The director isn't giving up hope of getting back behind the camera some day, and has been working for several months now on a script called Warbirds, inspired from the adventure films of George Roy Hill (Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid, The Sting). A very dear project for McTiernan, it tells the tale of a group of aerial firefighters who also lead a secret life during the winter. For the past few years, McTiernan had to give up on six different projects, as he was unable to get completion bonds from insurance companies. Let's all cross our fingers so that this one comes to pass.

McTiernan has been trying to get a few things going in the past, but unfortunately it hasn't panned out for him. I don't know your personal thoughts on whether it's fair that he goes to jail or not, however, I've really enjoyed the guy's career. Whenever he does get the opportunity to work on something that will follow through, I can't wait to see it.

Looks like we're all pretty much on the same page regarding him doing a final Die Hard movie. But think about this, McTiernan can use his experiences to make Die Hard....wait for it.....IN A PRISON! It'd strip back the location to a confined space again, which is what I think we all want after that horrifying adventure through Russia (and part of the Ukraine I think). Think about it, McClane gets called to visit someone and a Gruber-esque bad guy causes a prison takeover resulting in a seige

I'd watch the the fuck out of that.

He should do the final Die Hard to end the franchise, go out with a bang.

What he did was stupid and he should do the time. However, what he doesn't deserve is being blacklisted by Hollywood for the rest of his life. I look forward to seeing anything from him within the next few years.

Good

Victor Salva is still allowed to work despite being a convicted child molester (bastard shouldn't be directing anyway) and Lindsay Lohan is able to get out of jail despite being a reckless driver.

So McTiernan lied to the federal government? No one died or got physically hurt.

As for future work, he should do something original.

If he did the crime, he has to do the time. Just b/c he's a celebrity who has made a few of films I like doesn't excuse him from his sentence. However, once he's done with his sentence, it would be nice to see him make a decent Die Hard film after the last 2.

I hope he's able to bounce back once he gets out of the slammer. Would love to see some original stuff and perhaps a proper end to the Die Hard series.
