John McTiernan Takes Shrapnel


John McTiernan has signed on to direct Shrapnel, an action thriller about two war vets engaged in a “deadly game of cat and mouse,” reports Variety.

The script comes from Evan Daughtery, whose talent brought it to the 2008 Black List. The project is not to be confused with Shrapnel, a currently in-development science fiction film (oddly enough compared to McTiernan’s own Die Hard by its own director, Len Wiseman).

With the Wiseman Shrapnel adapting a graphic novel, it is highly likely that the McTiernan film will find an alternate title.
