Street Fighter folks

02.18.2008
As previously announced, my longstanding infatuation Kristin Kreuk will be playing the slightly more thick-legged kicker-queen Chun Li in the new live-action STREET FIGHTER movie.

Now she's got some company: man-mountain Michael Clarke Duncan is playing boxer Balrog, "dude" actor Chris Klein will be someone named Nash, and Rick Yune (THE FAST AND THE FURIOUS) is "the mystical Gen."

Also among the cast is exotic fox Moon Bloodgood, Black Eyed Peas singer Taboo, and Hong Kong legend Cheng Pei Pei (CROUCHING TIGER, HIDDEN DRAGON). The whole big button-mashing combo-filled videogame punch-up comes from unpronounceable director Andrzej Bartkowiak (DOOM, ROMEO MUST DIE).

I have to ask -- does anyone still have any actual emotional investment in this series (outside of Chun Li/Cammy slashfic, of course)? I can't remember caring about it since arcade machines took quarters instead of tokens or swipe-cards.
Extra Tidbit: Rick Yune replaces Christian Slater as Edward Carnby in the direct-to-vid sequel to ALONE IN THE DARK. Not sure I see the resemblance.

Kristin Kreuk As Chun Li

The Photo of her is very attractive.It is difficult to tell if she can be a convincing Chun-Li, as her role on smallville(which i like the show)usually has her playing the victim

Bad cast, bad director. This will probably have a similar tone to that unwatchable DOA movie. It will try to be "fun" but fail.

No Van Damme, no reason to see. I mean, what's next, remaking "Super Mario Brothers?" Yeesh.

casting is critical...

for me it shouldnt be too hard to get people looking somewhat like the characters....by the looks of it this is a prequel with lots of SF alpha characters....with the arrival of SF4 soon this is good timing, as long as the script is decent and ken/ryu play "some" part..

Wow

Chris Klein as Nash is pretty much the worst casting I have ever heard.

Hadoken!

The Hut: It's a reboot, you dumbass. Not a sequel.

I'll wait and see how this is progressing.

Keep the SF series to Collegehumor

I am all for Kristen Kreuk get scantilly clad.
Otherwise, I'd rather watch STREET FIGHTER: THE LATER YEARS on colleghumor. At least THEY don't take it seriously. It's meant to be a joke.
This movie is 90% sure to suck. And I don't mean KK on my Kok.

why?

Interesting...but I see this coming out a lot like DoA. I'm curious who convinced someone there was money to be made here.

Painful.

I'm totally on board for Michael Clarke Duncan as Balrog. Not sure about Chris Klein as Nash (aka Charlie), even less sure about Rick Yune as Gen (must be some heavy-duty aging makeup getting prepped). Now who's playing Bison and Vega, dammit!?

It starts off Kristin Kreuk and I'm like ok sweet. Next we got Michael Clarke Duncan. He's old, but still good news. But, then you got Chris Klein...What the hell? Taboo? Forget about it.
