John Woo developing next-gen ninja game?

Wired article says the Hong Kong action legend's game company is working on "ShadowClan," due in fall 2006; Die Hard director's Ubisoft project also detailed.

With the convergence of the film and game industries gathering speed, it is unsurprising that Wired would run a feature on the trend. An article in the April 2005 issue of the technology monthly, titled "Straight to Videogame," lists the game projects of several notable film directors, including Bryan Singer, John Singleton, and George Romero.

However, while the X-Men, Boyz n the Hood, and Dawn of the Dead helmers' projects were already widely known, the Wired article contained some new information. Foremost among these was the first details on ShadowClan, a new title from Tiger Hill Games, the dev shop founded by Hong Kong action auteur John Woo. The game, which Wired described as a "modern-day ninja tale" that will see "rival gangs battle for control of New York City," is listed as a fall 2006 release.
