Metroid not an Option

While there have been various reports on John Woo's upcoming projects ("Rainbow Six" among them, at least according to Variety) during the past weeks, this latest is a discouragement. Sad as it might be for expecting fans, for Hollywood it's routine: "Metroid", as it seems, has been shelved. >> more

Chinese Reunion with Chow

Good news for all of you waiting for the next John Woo/Chow Yun Fat vehicle. Seems that the man and his favorite actor will make a film together again. Not in Hollywood though, China is the deal here. >> more

Hunting Spies

Taking coomputer games to the movie screen is a bad idea. Yeah, there have been some succesful adaptations. Admitted. But successful only in terms of investment. The movies sucked. Or did anybody actually think Tomb Raider 2 was a great film? >> more

The Metroid Option

John Woo seems to be getting seriously into SF. With the lukewarm Paycheck fading from memory, the action director might move on to some more Sci Fu. Woo optioned the film rights to Nintendo's highly successful Metroid game franchise. >> more

Hands in Cement, Again

John Woo and action star Jackie Chan will be among celebrities who contribute their handprints to Hong Kong's Avenue of Stars, due to open later this month. Modelled after Hollywood's Walk of Fame, the tourist attraction will feature handprints of about 70 Hong Kong film stars. Michelle Yeoh and actor/singer Andy Lau also have set their handprints for the exhibit.

"Lost" Vancouver Shoot starts March 2

Filming for the "Lost in Space" pilot hour is set to begin March 2 in Vanvouver. Cast includes Mike Erwin, Jayne Brook and newcomer Adrianne Palicki. John Woo is set to direct the episode.

Woo Yeoh!

Will Hong Kong grande dame Michelle Yeoh appear in a John Woo musical? The Taipei Times quoted her saying she hoped to work with the director on his upcoming musical project.

Faces in Deep Focus

Bryant Frazer's reviews are among the best you'll find. He shares his thoughts on Face/Off in this, and he thinks it rocks.

"I'm working on two projects now. One is an action musical gangster movie called The Dancer. It's based on a true story and the movie will be a combination of The Killer and Cabaret. The other is a remake of Le Cercle Rouge."

While we wait: Paycheck
