more street fighter movie news

I already mentioned a few months back that Kristin Kreuk had been cast as Chun Li in the upcoming Street Fighter movie, based on the popular movie. Variety recently reported some additional casting details on the project, officially titled Street Fighter: The Legend of Chun-Li, and it includes a few more Asian names: Kreuk, Duncan cruise 'Street'. It says that Rick Yune (where has he been?) will play "the mysical Gen." Uhhhh. I have nothing to say about this.

The cast also includes Moon Bloodgood, who I think is gorgeous; Singapore's Edmund Chen; and veteran Hong Kong actress Chen Pei-pei. I've got a bad, bad feeling about this movie. And the fact it's being directed by Andrzej Bartkowiak, who did Romeo Must Die and Exit Wounds, doesn't give me much comfort. Let the disaster begin.
