John Woo to deliver Stranglehold film?

A movie adaptation of John Woo's Stranglehold is very likely in the cards, if comments from Woo's production partner Terrence Chang are anything to go by.

"We would definitely bring Stranglehold to the big screen," Chang told Reuters in a report focusing on John Woo's collaboration with Warren Spector on Ninja Gold, a videogame which is also being adapted for the silver screen.

Chang explained that John Woo and crew want to take a "very selective" approach when it comes to producing games, adding that "having a movie made from them is certainly a major consideration for deciding on a title."

Stranglehold is a sequel of sorts to John Woo's classic action movie Hard Boiled, with Chow Yun-Fat reprising his role as Inspector Tequila in the videogame.

It's due out this summer on Xbox 360 and PS3, the latter version coming bundled with a free copy of Hard Boiled.
