By: John M Jerva

It’s been a long while but Asian action maestro John Woo is ready to bring his guns blazing, bombastic action back to the US. Deadline is reporting out of the AFM that Woo is ready to tackle his first North American action movie in over decades and the big catch is that it’ll contain no dialogue. That’s right! The movie is called Silent Night and there don’t be a word spoken. Just guns blazing action.

The film is set to star Suicide Squad alum Joel Kinnaman.

Per Deadline: Sources tell Deadline the story is basic, as a normal father heads into the underworld to avenge his young son’s death. The film is in negotiations to be financed by Capstone. John Wick’s Basil Iwanyk, Erica Lee, Christian Mercuri and Lori Tilkin are producing and Capstone’s Ruzanna Kegeyan is overseeing with Joe Gatta. Other casting is underway.

Woo is an icon in action cinema with such films as The Killer and Hard Boiled are genre classics. Woo traveled here to make movies like Broken Arrow, Face/Off and Mission: Impossible II but after Paycheck with Ben Affleck, Woo returned to China to make films.

Silent Night sounds truly original and epic and Kinnaman has proven himself in the genre. Under Woo’s expert tutelage, this one sounds like an instant classic.
