Prison. Federal prison. Don't lie to the F.B.I.

per Yahoo news:

A federal judge sentenced Hollywood director John McTiernan to four months in prison Monday after refusing to allow him to withdraw his guilty plea to charges of lying to the FBI about his association with disgraced private eye Anthony Pellicano.

I don't enjoy reporting this. I have wanted a to see a big comeback from McTiernan for years now. This is the guy who gave us such action flicks like DIE HARD, PREDATOR, THE HUNT FOR THE RED OCTOBER, DIE HARD WITH A VENGEANCE, and THE THOMAS CROWN AFFAIR. He's also the guy who directed ROLLERBALL, BASIC, THE 13th WARRIOR, and THE LAST ACTION HERO, so suffice to say, he's due for something great.

Who knows how all of his legal troubles will affect his directing career....
