John Woo: Stranglehold Movie Won't Be Ready "For Years"Brian Ashcraft4/20/09 4:00amFiled to: StrangleholdMidwayjohn wooNews28EditPromoteShare to KinjaToggle Conversation toolsGo to permalinkStranglehold, the Midway video game with John Woo's name slapped on it, is getting a movie version. He won't be directing, but rather, producing. And don't look for it shooting up theaters anytime soon!The game is a sequel of sorts to 1992 Hong Kong action flick Hard Boiled and starred the film's lead Chow Yun-Fat and the character he made famous, Tequilla. The Stranglehold film is apparently moving forward without Chow Yun-Fat. What's more, instead of Woo, actor-writer-director Stephen Fung (Enter The Phoenix, House of Fury) has been in negotiations to helm John Woo game.
