248w ago - John Woo is reportedly involved with the film, Jeremy Passmore and Andre Fabrizio penning the script.
The 2007 action title Stranglehold has John Woo's name attached to it, so it seems only natural that it would eventually find its way to the big screen. And according to the Hollywood Report, that's exactly what it's doing.
Buried amid news of a Missing in Action remake is mention that writers Jeremy Passmore and Andre Fabrizio are also busy developing a Stranglehold script.
Being as Stranglehold was itself based on Hard Boiled, another John Woo project, this should be interesting to see. Especially with John Woo himself apparently being involved in the film.
No news on casting or possible release dates, but we'll keep you up to date as we get more information.
326w ago - All things being well in the world of the PlayStation Store, you should now be able to download a demo of the PS3 version of Midway's Woo-'em-up Stranglehold.
In Stranglehold, in case you didn't know, you step into the shoes of Chow Yun-Fat as Inspector Tequila and shoot shit up while doing lots of slow-mo diving. And shooting. And diving. And shooting.
Midway says the demo "will allow players to get a taste of the intense, non-stop action, cinematic gunplay and massively destructible environments that their itchy trigger fingers have been waiting for."
326w ago - PS3 owners will be able to blast their way through one level of Stranglehold in a demo hitting the PSN later today.
Just like the Xbox 360 demo which went live a month ago, you'll take control of Inspector Tequila (Chow Yun Fat) and his duel-wield guns and go on a killing spree in the massively destructible Hong Kong marketplace level.
It will give a fair taster of all the table-diving mechanics as you leap over market stools to dodge bullets, and slide down rails on staircases - Sonic the Hedgehog-style - while firing off rounds from your two pistols.
A PC demo is also on the way, but an exact date is yet to be set.
