John Woo’s Stranglehold sequel was to be called Gun Runner, early footage emerges from this canceled project

Ex-Midway employee, Sean Lantis, has revealed some early footage from John Woo’s Stranglehold sequel, Gun Runner, that was canceled a couple of years ago. As Lantis described, this project was basically the sequel to Stranglehold and was getting fully rebranded to appeal to a wider audience. Lantis was the VFX lead on this project and was in charge of all visual effects as well as a good portion of the destruction work. Unfortunately, this game never made it to production and all footage is from the preproduction stage. Enjoy!

While he is a die-hard PC gamer, his gaming roots can be found on consoles. John loved - and still does - the 16-bit consoles, and considers SNES to be one of the best consoles. Still, the PC platform won him over consoles. That was mainly due to 3DFX and its iconic dedicated 3D accelerator graphics card, Voodoo 2.
