The director of “Die Hard” is off to live hard.

A federal judge in Los Angeles  sentenced John McTiernan Monday to one year in jail and a $100,000 fine for lying to FBI agents over a wiretapping case in which he hired rogue detective Anthony Pellicano to wiretap film producer Charles Roven after they worked on the 2002 movie “Rollerball”, the news service AFP reported.

His other films include “The Hunt for Red October” and “The Thomas Crown Affair.”

Pellicano, the detective to the star, who illegally wiretapped the rich and famous, is serving a 15-year-sentence.
