Street Fighter Movie Grabs a Director: Confirms It Will Suck!
It's almost guaranteed: the Street Fighter movie first mentioned back in last October will suck! The producers have signed on "action specialist" director Andrzej Bartkowiak (that's him in the photo above) for the film. Here's his credits: Doom, Cradle 2 the Grave, and Exit Wounds, Romeo Must Die. Oh no, it's this guy directing our beloved Street Fighter movie? Here comes Jean-Claude Van Damme all over again.
I dare you to guess which awful studio is putting out this load of crap. Yep, it's Fox, that same studio we've talked about plenty of times before. Production is set to begin early next year (pre-Screen Actors Guild strike as always) on the live action feature film.
The script was written by Justin Marks (he's also writing the upcoming Masters of the Universe and Voltron scripts), who is currently polishing the rusty hubcap of a script into a gleaming pile of crap. As also originally discussed in October, the film will focus on the female fighter Chun Li and her journey for justice.
You know, I really was hoping for an actual good Street Fighter movie. That game has a certain place in my heart (and millions of other peoples') and I know we all want a good movie out of it. Unfortunately that's just not going to happen.
