Run Thomas run!

It’s a small coincidence that I’m writing a story about a John McTiernan film tonight, because let’s face it: it’s not every day you get to see a John McTiernan film. But for me, today was one of those days, and to be writing about it now, well, I’m at a loss for words (the movie was PREDATOR). But somewhat misleadingly, this article isn’t so much John McTiernan-based as it is Thomas Jane-based, as the Eckhartish actor has signed on to headline JT’s action-thriller RUN.

The film is being touted as a continental speed orgy of cars, chases, and car chases. A US Interpol agent (Jane) stumbles into a conspiracy that leads him on “a high-speed pursuit across the country.” Shooting starts on April 14th in Argentina. Producer Gary Hamilton had this to say: "This is an unrelenting action-thriller in true McTiernan style, creating acrobatic mayhem in exotic locales," said Hamilton. "BMW has come onboard to provide the cars, and Roush Performance is designing a Super Mustang for the film, setting up what will be a spectacular vehicle stunt-action chase movie." McTiernan’s last two films after the entertaining THOMAS CROWN AFFAIR were ROLLERBALL and BASIC, so, yeah.

Extra Tidbit: Can you believe the guy up there was the Punisher? Amazing what a shave, some dye and a grimace can do.
