Christopher Webster [Celluloid 01.27.11] movie news poster thriller

There's been some confusion as to whether Die Hard/Predator director, John McTiernan's Shrapnel is based on the science fiction comic series created by Mark Long & Nick Sagan. Apparently it's not (even though IMDB says it is). It's actually a gritty wilderness thriller that actually sounds pretty sweet - and we've tracked down the first poster for you to have a look at.

SHRAPNEL tells the story of two veterans of the Bosnian War, one American, one Serbian, who clash in the remote Rocky Mountain wilderness. FORD is a former American soldier who fought on the front lines in Bosnia. When our story begins, he has retreated to a remote cabin in the woods, trying to escape painful memories of war.

The drama begins when KOVAC, a former Serbian soldier, seeks Ford out, hoping to settle an old score. What follows is a cat-and-mouse game in which Ford and Kovac fght their own personal World War III, with battles both physical and psychological. By the end of the flm, old wounds are opened, suppressed memories are drawn to the surface and long-hidden secrets about both Ford and Kovac are revealed.
