    Question Van Damme in Street Fighter 2!?!

    Holy moly!!! From ComingSoon.net

    The Herald Sun reports, via Moviehole, that plans are underway for Jean-Claude Van Damme to star in the follow-up to 1994's Street Fighter, based on the populer game.

    The Muscles from Brussels has been in talks with talent all week, hoping to lock in an ensemble soon.

    Australian singer, Holly Valance, has been in talks with Van Damme this week about co-starring in the movie. She would replace fellow singer, Kylie Minogue, who starred in the original. Van Damme is said to have been impressed by Valance - who can apparently kickbox - but according to The Herald Sun the filmmmakers will still be auditioning other actors up until the last minute.

    The original film was based on the classic video game, with Van Damme in the lead role and Raul Julia playing the film's main villain.

    It's not yet known whether "Streetfighter 2" will be filmed in Australia - as the first one was - but it is projected that it'll get a theatrical release.
    Hot damn...there goes my shot at directing the "Real" Streetfighter 2 film. Argh! I always wished someone would shoot "scene-for-scene" a live-action rendition of the SF2 Manga anime.

    Streetfighter is on my "worst movies" list... I think it can't get much worse than first one.

    It would be nice to see some kind of original japanese SF2 movie... in "japanese" filmmaking style. That could really kick a**.

    This movie gotta be false? Why are they only interested in Austalien singers to play an English assasin? I don't mind them using a none English actress if she can at least put on an English accent and be menacing. Holly Valance is not menacing.

    And VAN DAMN SHOULD NOT PLAY GUIL!!!!

    They could do something much more usefull wid the money rather then spending it on a sequel of a useless movie (such as giving the money to asidz)

    Because she's hot, that's why.

    Anyway, can't believe it's a real news story. What's next? MK3!?? Super Mario Bros 2?

    Oh god, not another Mortal Kombat movie. I'd hoped that it would die after the second one.

    As for SF2, I can't say I'm suprised. It seems like the kind of movie that would draw an audience. Even if it sucked.
    If you can stay calm, while all around you is chaos...then you probably haven't completely understood the seriousness of the situation.
