John McTiernan to Shoot Film in China?

Personally I’ll believe this when I see it as John McTiernan hasn’t exactly been allowed to direct any movies in Hollywood since he got released from prison but I still hold out hope.

According to CFI in an interview with Tencent Entertainment the Die Hard director said he will helm “a film about the aftermath of the Doolittle Raid bombing raid on Tokyo in 1942. Shooting is expected to start next year in China.

The opportunity will no doubt be a welcome second chance for the director whom The Hollywood Reporter described in June as one of a few other Hollywood figures “so despised” that he “won’t be welcomed back in the industry anytime soon.”

Hollywood and Hong Kong veteran producer André Morgan will be producing the WWII feature through his Ruddy Morgan Organization, according to Tencent Entertainment.

Like I said, I’ll believe it when I see it but if Hollywood won’t give him a chance then hopefully China will…
