Recently, it was announced that John McTiernan (Die Hard, Predator) would be making his return to both action and science fiction with his next project Tau Ceti 4, which would star Uma Thurman (Gattaca, Kill Bill) and Australian actor Travis Fimmel (Vikings).
McTiernan would be writing and directing the science fiction action film that would be taking place off-world.
Tau Ceti 4 takes place on the war-torn fourth planet in the remote Tau Ceti solar system, where three heavily armed strangers show up, size up the various oligarchs and military thugs who terrorize the place and set about killing every single one of them.
HN Entertainment has learned that Tau Ceti 4 is eyeing filming locations such as Spain and the Baltic country of Montenegro for its shoot.
I’m very interested to see what the project will look like production design-wise as we really haven’t seen John tackle something this fantastical within the science fiction genre, as most of his films have been fairly grounded (outside of Last Action Hero).
Fimmel recently worked with Alien, Prometheus, and Alien: Covenant director Ridley Scott on his android series Raised By Wolves airing on TNT.
A release date for the film has yet to be made official.
