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

  • moviemadness

    wait…never mind. after finishing reading, it sounds boring

  • helena

    she is perfect for the character
    Love Kristin!

  • lily

    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.

  • From the block

    Oh God….Jean Clude Van dam anyone?

  • DUI

    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!

  • [~Famous~] – Your God.

    first – let me start off by saying kristin kreuk’s one of the hottest bishes breathing. but another street fighter movie? c’mon… seriously? and out of all the characters they could have focused on – chun-li? lmaoo she’s the worst of them all.

    hollywood sucks.

  • linda

    i really luv her,shes awsome

  • Tim

    this is stupid

  • Maniston

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

  • JOLie fan

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

  • Channelsurfer531

    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!

  • Daniela

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

  • http://iamthelostgirl.wordpress.com/ TheLostGirl

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

  • stella

    She is beautiful. i love her as lana

  • Nicole

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

  • Silly

    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.

  • Jorge

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

  • http://paidandpopular.com Anthony to the S.

    strangely, this fits. hm.

    http://paidandpopular.com

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

  • angie!

  • Helena

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

  • SadieLady

  • John

    As lame as the idea is, I don’t know, it could work I guess. We’ve already seen a preview of what it would be like in that one episode of Smallville – something about being possessed by an evil French witch, going to China to get some freaking stone, kicking Clark’s ass Matrix style in an ethnic costume – and it’s about the only episode where she showed some range in the emotions department.
    I don’t dig the cinnamon rolls on her though.

  • qa

    She doesn’t have the body to match Chun Li.

  • trisha

    OMG I CANT WAIT LOL I LOVE THESE CARTOONS BOTH DRAGON BALL AND STREET FIGTHER

  • me

    Terrible casting. Are you kidding me? She’s awful enough as Lana on Smallville, must we really subject viewers to her poor performance in this? She can’t act and can’t fight to save her life. Waste of money.

  • the_original_nika

    another version of the movie? oh god… the other one was crap enough.
    who knows about this one…

  • Moi

    WHAT?! No Ryu and Ken and powerballs???? Those are my favourite bits of the game! No offense but Kreuk isn’t a very good actress on Smallville and Street Fighter??!!

    The previous film sucked and I was so disappointed because the characters merely became caricatures. Here’s to hoping this one doesn’t turn out like that.

  • Whatever

    LOL! It would definitely be interesting to see Kristin in this one. I have faith that she can do this, though. Go Kristin!!!

    btw, i love her Lana character in smallville…=)

    p.s.-my eyes are hurting with all the jealousy floating around here…=P

  • babyG

    she’s gorgeous and lookin’ hot!!!

    I’m having mixed feelings about Kristin Kreuk playing Chun Li.

  • wow

  • TIM

    Kristin’s acting in Smallville is fine, its the bad writing thats the problem as I susect will be the case with this movie

  • TIM

    KK was voted the best looking actor on tv by Yahoo!SHE WILL MAKE A GREAT CHUN LI.

  • bataglio

    she might be chun-li, but she’s also HOT

  • ralph

    kristin is very pretty. i hope lana ends up with clark at the end of smallville….don’t like lois from the show. to me, lana is way prettier than her. haha…it’s actually hard to beat lana.

  • critic

    i think its gonna b a great movie coz kristin is so hot….. dis s a new take on the chun li character….(no fireballs and stuff) but id hav to say dat i am having doubts abwt the prodction…..

    id lov 2 watch it… so il save my judgement after iv watch it….
