Street Fighter Legacy: Movie!?!?
I know, I know, some of you blokes are have rolled your eyes more than the earth around the sun. But this time one must worried, for it has Tom Cruise… well more like Sylaresque Ken Masters.
Anyhow, back to the movie. The short film is being produced by StreetLight Films and Joey Ansah, co-directing; Ansah, some may recall, played sly CIA supper-assassin “Desh” in The Bourne Ultimatum.
Ansah is calling his attempt a “beautiful lil’ film that hopefully non fans will really appreciate…and the people who deserve it most…the fans,” set in a “darker toned and more adult themed” film, by capturing “the brilliance of the game” while staying “as faithful as possible down to the smallest details of the costume, the choreography, the narrative, the original music themes and of course the special moves!”
Yeah, we’ve heard that all before, too. But this does have blessings from Capcom and crew for their dedication, and hell, the film’s director, Owen Trevor, directs my favorite show, Top Gear. Then theres Anthony Wayne, who’s produced the last eleven Bond films, so maybe there’s hope after all. Christian Howard, the co-writer/storyboarder/choreographer, will rightfully play Ken.

Give the two teaser trailers a gander, those sixty seconds alone are better then the last two attempts in live action.
The short will be released Thursday, June 6, 2010.
