Kristin Kreuk is Chun-Li
Smallville star Kristin Kreuk, aka Lana Lang, has been cast in the upcoming live-action film Street Fighter movie as Chun-Li
According to Comingsoon.net, Street Fighter: Legend of Chun-Li starts filming in Thailand in March 2008.
LatinoReview got their paws on an early version of the script. Here are some spoiler-rific bits:
– The new flick centers on one character: Chun-Li. That’s it. No Ryu, no Ken, no Guile, no eight million characters.
– Chun-Li’s mother dies and now she has no one. She searches out a man called Gen and it is he who tells her that her father is actually still alive in the hands of Bison. Chun-Li then trains with Gen. She becomes faster! Stronger! She is…THE STREET FIGHTER!
– The movie is a revenge flick plain and simple. There’s some awesome kung-fu action in the script but there’s no fireballs. No sonic booms. No flash kicks. Pure and simple Chun-Li is on a mission to find her father and take down Bison.
Here’s to hoping they use the same costume!
