Die Hard director heading to jail

Die Hard director John McTiernan is set to serve a year behind bars for his involvement in the wire-tapping scandal that rocked Hollywood.


He was handed down the sentence back in 2010 after pleading guilty to making false statements to the FBI and perjuring himself in front of a federal judge.

McTiernan was found to have hired Anthony Pellicano – the private investigator now serving 15 years for racketeering, conspiracy, fraud, and wire-tapping – to illegally record Charles Roven, the producer of his 2002 flop Rollerball. He had denied discussing wire-tapping with Pellicano; lies that came back to haunt him.

According to Deadline, the Supreme Court decided not to hear McTiernan’s appeal. He will soon have to report to federal prison.

Once released, he will remain under supervision for a further three years.
