----------------------------

Director John McTiernan (Die Hard, The Hunt for Red October) has run out of appeals in the Anthony Pellicano wiretapping scandal and is expected to be going to prison soon as a result.

McTiernan had been sentenced in 2010 to a year in the slammer and a fine of $100,000 after pleading guilty to making false statements to the FBI during the larger Pellicano investigation. The director had hired Pellicano, a Hollywood private detective, in 2002 to investigate producer Chuck Roven while McTiernan was working on Rollerball with Roven.

John McTiernan in the good old Rollerball days.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, McTiernan's request to reverse his guilty plea was declined yesterday by the U.S. Supreme Court. He had appealed the Ninth U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals last summer and also was rejected.

Guess he wasn't high enough on the Hollywood ladder to just get a slap on the wrist like those A-list Hollywood directors and movie stars.
