As some of you may know, and as hard as it is to believe, there is a new Street Fighter movie on the way called Street Fighter: The Legend Of Chun Li and to the sadness of millions around the world, Jean-Claude Van Damme will not be reprising his legendary role of Colonel William F. Guile. A moment of silence please.
Having said that the official Street Fighter: The Legend Of Chun Li website is up and is listing the cast that includes:
Michael Clarke Duncan
Pei Pei Cheng
Now, if you’re sitting there reading that cast list and thinking “my dear sweet lord, this this is going to be horrible”, let your mind be at peace. The good news is that the man who directed such classics as Romeo Must Die, Exit Wounds and Cradle 2 the Grave, Mr. Andrzej Bartkowiak is directing so there’s nothing to worry about. Oh wait a second… all those movies SUCKED.
Yeah, not a lot of hope for this disaster in the making. Who knows though, stranger things have happened. But someone help me out here… when did Chun Li become the lead character in the Street Fighter frianchise?
