Warren Spector and movie director John Woo are collaborating on new property Ninja Gold, GamesIndustry.biz is reporting.
The project will be both a movie and videogame, with both titles developed alongside one another, according to the Hollywood Reporter.
"The idea actually started with John Woo. He wanted to do something involving traditional ninjas in a modern-day setting," commented Spector.
"I know that my thought from the start was to develop something that would work just as well in games as in movies, and I know John was thinking along the same lines," he revealed.
"This was an attempt to create a concept that would work in, and be developed for, a variety of media simultaneously. That's something new for games and for movies."
John Woo is currently working with Midway on Stranglehold, a game designed as a sequel to the director's 1992 thriller Hard Boiled.
