"Hard Boiled 2" Will Be a Prequel

Posted: March 15th, 2009 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
"Hard Boiled 2" Will Be a PrequelSubmit Comment
It was recently reported that John Woo's production company has began developing a big screen adaptation of the "Strangehold" video game, which will serve as a sequel to Woo's action film "Hard Boiled."

Now, TwitchFilm sat down with Woo's production partner Terence Chang, who revealed that the new film is not actually a sequel. Here is what he had to say:

"It will be a hardcore action film set in both Hong Kong and Chicago. We will keep some of the action set pieces of the game, but the story is different. It is a total reinvention, with a much younger Tequila. In other words, it is not a sequel to Hard Boiled."

Apparently Chow Yun-Fat will not return to reprise his role, since the filmmakers are choosing to use a younger Inspector 'Tequila' Yuen. I guess this also means, that "Hard Boiled 2" will be a prequel.

In addition, Woo will not be directing the new film. Rumors are floating around that Stephen Fung (House of Fury) is currently in talks to helm.

If Woo isn't involved and this movie appears in theaters instead of the movies Woo has directed recently, I will be pissed. When is Red Cliff coming to theaters?!

Jesus, even John Woo can't come up with original sh*t these days. He really has gone Hollywood. Anyone wanna start a pool on how many friggin' pigeons are gonna be in this one?
