Do you remember the 1994 live-action Street Fighter movie? Do you remember how shockingly bad it was? Well apparently Hollywood doesn't, that's why we're getting tripe such as Street Fighter - The Legend of Chun Li. Joint produced by Hyde Park Entertainment
and Capcom Ltd., The Legend of Chun Li is slated for a 2008 release, which so happens to be the 20th anniversary of the vaunted game franchise. Andrzej Bartkowiak will direct the movie from a script by Justin Marks.
While the plot is being kept under wraps, what we do know is the roster of pugilists making an appearance in the film. Fan favorites Chun Li (duh), Bison, Vega, Gen, and Balrog are set to enter the ring, followed by newcomers Maya, Huang, Cantana, and Zhilan. Whether or not SF veterans Ryu and Ken will appear in the film is unknown.
Will this new flick best Street Fighter's last attempt at silver screen ass kicking? Probably. Will it be any good? Only time will tell. On the bright side, Smallville hottie Kristin Kreuk will play Chun Li!
