Kristin Kreuk is Chun-Li

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!

Well I must say I’d rather have this re-made rather than Dragonball. Plus it was already a live action movie

cool. i always loved playing chun-li when I was little. I thought it was going to be a streetfighter movie, now that would be cool. I commend them for just wanting to make a movie about a female action hero but I don’t think they usually do well by themselves.

Love Kristin! I’ve read this rumor on a number of sites, but has this been confirmed by either KK’s rep or the production company?

I’m not usually into action fics, but I’ll watch this one just for KK!

this is stupid

A little messed up on the casting. National origin is a little important.

Yeah!! More asian oriented films in Hollywood! I can’t wait for Dragonball.

Hey, at least Kristin is half Chinese (the other half is Dutch). She does have a martial arts background and I think this is right up her alley. I would be so excited if this rumor were true!

You dont know how HAPPY I am your posting Kristin Kreuk news, she is my ALL TIME FAVORITE ACTRESS!!♥

I agree, she will be really great in the role!

She is beautiful. i love her as lana

I expect they’ll be a lot of crying, then?

Sounds ok but they should rename the movie to Chun Li or something like that. If they make a Street Fighter movie, they need Ryu and Ken because they are the main characters.

i think it’s a good choice. i am not sure it will be a good movie though…..

strangely, this fits. hm.

by the way, there IS NO STREET FIGHTER w/o Ken or Ryu.

YAY for Kristin!! i love her!! Im so going to see this….Jared please post on kristin Kreuk more often!!

Here’s hoping this film doesn’t get made at all. It’s a disaster waiting to happen!

kinda like an asian Lara Croft.

I love her. She is pretty, great actress and a very nice person.

LOVE Kristin. She’s gorgeous, I’ll def. see this movie.

omg i cant wait! this is gonna be so cool, especially cause if you watch smallville then you know she plays actionfighting roles very well. she is going to make this movie rock!
