John McTiernan is one of my favorite 80s/early 90s action film directors. Behind such hits as Die Hard, Die Hard With a Vengeance, and Predator (as well as crap like the remakes of Rollerball and The Thomas Crown Affair), he used to the man at one point.
But apparently he got himself involved in some wiretapping conspiracy that landed him a prison sentence. I guess we shouldn’t expect anymore old school MGM remakes from him for a while. Think Hollywood will give him another shot? If they can Victor Salva, convicted pedophile, another shot, why not McTiernan too.
