Much like how your mom's boyfriend Ralph will never be your "real dad" we're adamant that there's only one Street Fighter
movie for us: The awful, awful Jean Claude van Damme vehicle released in 1994. So we have mixed feelings about a new Street Fighter film
being put into production, and a slew of new information on the movie isn't making things any clearer.
We already knew that Street Fighter: The Legend of Chun Li
's Kristen Kreuk in the lead role. Joining her is Michael Clarke Duncan
as Balrog, Neil McDonough
as M. Bison, Chris Klein
as Charlie Nash and (wait for it) Taboo
of the Black Eyed Peas as Vega. The flick will be directed by Andrzej Bartkowiak, whose last three films were Doom
, Cradle 2 the Grave
and Exit Wounds
. ... Wow, we think our first paragraph just became officially not ironic. We'll find out what this cracker jack team cooks up in 2009.
