McTiernan's huge Urban actioner

JohnMcTiernan.jpgJohn McTiernan is returning to action with his film Deadly Exchange which is in production, but he's not stopping there as another action film called Run is announced.

Run is set to star Karl Urban as an Interpol agent (makes a change from an FBI one I guess) who is chasing a murder suspect. It all seems simple enough but he starts to uncover a fraud conspiracy and things get complicated.

What is perhaps most interesting is that the story from Variety has the rumour that the script for the film has one hundred pages of car chases. Now while I think that might be exaggerated somewhat, it still seems a hell of a lot of car chases for one film.

Still, if anyone can do it I think McTiernan can. He's most known for Die Hard, but so often there are the titles of The Hunt for Red October, Last Action Hero, Die Hard: With a Vengeance and The Thomas Crown Affair remake that are missed, and my personal favourite out of the entire list, the film that redeems anything he's done that's not been good, Predator.

What's your favourite John McTiernan film?
