"John Woo may not be leaving Hollywood for good, but he's moving out of Brentwood. The acclaimed action-film director - whose list of works includes Broken Arrow, Face/Off and the 2003 Ben Affleck masterpiece Paycheck - recently parted ways with his longtime home, selling the Los Angeles property for a reported 2.7 million. Woo originally purchased the property in 2002 for $995,000 and later commissioned the building of a five-bedroom, seven-bathroom traditional in 2006. Measuring 5,345 square feet, the two-story abode features a spacious master suite with its own outdoor deck, a secondary master on the lower level and a well-appointed chef's kitchen."

All the proceeds from the sale will probably be invested in his new production project, "The Crossing", which he will also be directing. Woo has roped in Japanese heartthrob, Takeshi Kaneshiro and Zhang Ziyi to play the leads in the romantic story that will be delivered in two parts.
In an interview with Screen Daily, Woo said:
"It is about three couples from different backgrounds whose lives are affected by the tide of history. They survive war and disaster to finally find happiness. But this is not a heavy or sad story. It is a story of hope, and has a lot of action, drama and humor."
