Change file accessibility based on choice field

This may not even be possible but worth asking.  Is there away to have a choice field make a file "read only" to all but owners or a set list of users?

 

Right now the process is that when the users are ready they change the choice to "approval" which moves the file to the approval library in the same site but they no longer have access at all to the file.  Then at that point the approver can either change to "Approved" or "Adjustments required".  When changed to "Adjustments required" the file moves back to the users to be able to edit the file, but what we would like to do is once the file is marked "Approved" for it to move back to the users but to be read only so they can no longer edit the file.  Guess one way would be to add another library for "Approved" and users to only have read only access but was hoping to avoid setting up another library if possible.
