Action-Legende gibt Hollywood-Comeback So ungewöhnlich ist der neue Film von John Woo mit einem DC-Star und «John Wick»-Support

Thunder Road Pictures

John Woo shaped modern action cinema like few other people. His Hong Kong films such as the » A Better Tomorrow » series, » Bullet In The Head «, » Hard Boiled » and of course the sensational masterpiece » The Killer » are still influential today. In the US, Woo was n’t always able to tie in with those old days , despite a hit like » Face/Off «. After films like » Mission: Impossible II «, » Windtalkers » and » Paycheck » he went back to his homeland.

He has been working there for around 20 years, but has received far less attention than when he was at his wedding — even if the » Self Defense » from 2017 released on Netflix is ​​not only an overloaded but wonderfully over-the-top crazy memory for the author of these lines of old works of action size. But now Woo is working on a Hollywood project again – albeit in Mexico.

When he announced “ Silent Night ” a few months ago , action fans were already cheering. But one could also remain skeptical. Does the financing really work this time? Or will it fall apart, like so many other projects that Woo wanted to implement over the past two decades, but in the end he didn’t get enough money or the freedom he wanted? But now Woo’s «Silent Night» is actually being shot in Mexico and backed by «John Wick» producer Basil Iwanyk and his company Thunder Road — and it’s pretty damn extraordinary in concept.

«Silent Night»: Only action, no dialogue

Because the master of action cinema, John Woo, only wants to celebrate the moving images and only let them speak — in other words, offer cinema in its purest form. «Silent Night» shouldn’t contain a single line of dialogue. DC star Joel Kinnaman («The Suicide Squad», «Suicide Squad») plays a father who goes deep into the underworld to avenge his son. Apart from the Swedish-American actor, who can also be seen in our article picture (from » The Informer «), no cast member has been announced so far.

However, thanks to an Instagram account run by John Woo’s daughter Kim about her father’s work, we know that filming has been going on for about a week now. Pictures regularly appear on the Instagram channel that don’t yet show us anything from the film, but at least reveal that Woo is shooting again and of course working again with weapons specialist Robert «Rock» Galotti . In all of Woo’s US films, he ensured safe, but still realistic firearms, slashing and stabbing weapons on the set, also worked on the » Matrix » films, » Transformers «, » The Hateful Eight «, » Avengers: Endgame ” or most recently “ Avatar 2′ and ‘ Avatar 3 ‘.

Now it remains to be seen with excitement when and where “Silent Night” will be released. The exploitation rights have allegedly already been hotly traded, but so far there has not been an official announcement from streaming services and/or (which of course we hope for) cinema distributors. So “Silent Night” doesn’t have a start date yet.

If you want to know what makes John Woo so special, we recommend the following video, which was made a few years ago when we were choosing the 100 best films of all time and of course » The Killer » also found its place there …
