    New Street Fighter Movie Planned

    New Street Fighter Movie Planned
    Capcom plotting film for 2008.
    by IGN Staff

    US, October 30, 2006 - A new Street Fighter movie is coming! Forget about the silliness of the 1994 film version that starred Jean-Claude Van Damme, Hyde Park Entertainment and Capcom are teaming up to produce a new flick based on the classic fighting videogame.

    Variety scoops that screenwriter Justin Marks has been asked to pen the script for the movie which will reportedly center around the game's prolific female fighter, Chun Li. As you might expect, the other details of the story are being kept secret.

    Marks recently finished writing the screenplay for another project that will likely get fanboys excited, a movie based on the popular 1980s toy line and cartoon series, Voltron: Defender of the Universe.

    According to Variety, Street Fighter is set for a 2008 release; that happens to be the 20th anniversary of the videogame franchise.

    Fans of the franchise may remember persistent rumors from recent years about a new Street Fighter film in development with Dolph Lundgren and Van Damme. There was some additional buzz that Australian actress Holly Valance (DOA) would star -- she might not make a bad Chun Li. However, this news appears unrelated to those rumors and should put them to rest once and for all.

    i really do hope that holly valance is in the film (only cuz i dont mind looking at her at all) but please dont tell me shes going to be playing chun li..... sum1 like cammy i can kinda understand.... but chun li? nooooooo!!

    and why focus the movie on chun li wen u can just focus on Ryu! the most favourite character!

    dead or alive being a eye candy film is okay... but please take this seriously for once!! this is street fighter!
