Stranglehold, the third-person shooter developed by Midway Games Chicago, “presented” by John Woo and starring Chow Yun-fat, had a sequel in the works before Midway was sold part and parcel in 2009.

Footage of the title, known as Gun Runner, saw the return of Chow Yun-fast as Inspector Tequila alongside a new character who appears to be Vin Diesel.

The game was never put into formal production, and visual effects lead Sean Lantis posted two minutes of pre-production test footage
