News   Film's John Woo to Direct New "Killer"-Meets-"Cabaret" Action Moviemusical
 
Film director John Woo, whose latest movie "Paycheck" is currently in theatres, will develop a new movie termed "an action musical" by the filmmaker in a recent New York Times article.

The storyline for the feature will follow a tough gangster who also happens to be a great dancer. "It will be a combination of my Hong Kong film 'The Killer' and Bob Fosse's 'Cabaret,'" Woo told the paper. "Since my kind of action is pretty much like a dance, it should work." The Chinese director Woo directed his first feature film in his native country in 1973 but became known to American film audiences with his cult hit "The Killer" in 1989 and was subsequently offered a Hollywood contract. His American films — which use action in highly choreographed scenes — include "Hard Target," "Broken Arrow," "Face/Off" and "Mission: Impossible II."
