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!

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

    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!

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

    Silly Says:

    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.
