McTiernan directs new action film
John McTiernan who gave us the first and third in the Die Hard series will not direct the fourth. Instead he's planning a new movie called Deadly Exchange.
Deadly Exchange, from a script by Ron Shusett and Ian Rabin, revolves around a terrorist who goes undetected as he hunts down the FBI agent who assassinated his father 10 years earlier.
The story through Coming Soon sounds interesting, and I wonder if it will concentrate on the terrorist or the FBI agent? I think it would be good if it did look at the terrorist, but I suspect it shan't. It's actually a real shame he's not directing the fourth film, some people are attributing that to his recent personal problems with the courts. Is this perhaps why his new tale is about hunting down FBI agents?
In my eyes though he can do know wrong, he is after all the man who directed Predator...and I just ignore the darker marks on his career...
