Scooped on Sunday, November 23, 2008
A new movie based on Capcom's Street Fighter video game is in development. Variety reports that the upcoming film will be produced by Hyde Park Entertainment and Capcom, the first time that the video game creator has gotten involved in producing a movie based on one of its creations.
Fresh off of his Voltron assignment, screenwriter Justin Marks has been hired to write the story which will center on Chun Li, the popular female fighter introduced in the Street Fighter II arcade game. The producers will be shopping their movie at the upcoming American Film Market and are hoping to have it released in 2008 to mark the 20th anniversary of the game.
The first Street Fighter film came out in 1994 and starred Jean-Claude Van Damme as Guile. Ming Na played the character of Chun Li in the film.
