John McTiernan has signed on to direct action thriller Shrapnel for Belgian production and financing company Corsan and L.A.-based FilmEngine, according to Variety.

Evan Daugherty wrote the script for Shrapnel, which revolves around two war veterans who hunt each other in a deadly game of cat and mouse.

"From the first time we read Evan's script, we believed we had the makings of a hit action film. With John McTiernan involved, the financing fell into place, and we expect to announce casting very soon," producer Anthony Rhulen said.

No production date has been set.
