    Ah shit no!

    If you're too lazy to click:
    "The MovieSet Blog has learned details about the latest video game to be turned into a movie and no, Uwe Boll is nowhere near this project’s set. The film is called King of Fighters and is based on the SNK Playmore arcade fighting game that debuted in 1994 and has spawned 11 sequels and 13 — yeah, you read that right — 13 spinoff games. By comparison, Capcom’s Street Fighter and Midway’s Mortal Kombat brawler franchises are still in the single digits with their sequels.

    Learn all the cast, crew and story details after the jump, player!

    The King of Fighters movie quietly began filming in Vancouver, Canada on November 27 under the eye of director Gordon Chan, the dynamic Hong Kong-born helmer of Fist of Legend, Beast Cop and the 2003 Jackie Chan movie The Medallion. The screenplay is by newcomer Rita Augustine.

    The movie stars Maggie Q (Live Free and Die Hard), Sean Faris (Never Back Down), Will Yun Lee (Elektra), Francoise Yip (Aliens vs. Predator - Requiem), Monique Ganderton (Supernatural) and the coolest Sith Lord ever, Ray Park (a.k.a. Darth Maul from Star Wars: The Phantom Menace). It also looks like the King of Fighters movie will introduce a new science fiction spin into the setting established in the games’ universe by following the surviving members of three legendary fighting clans who are continually whisked away to other dimensions by an evil power. As the fighters enter each new world they battle that universe’s native defenders, while the force that brought them seeks to find a way to invade and infect our world. Pardon me while I show how much of a nerd I am but it kind of sounds like a little bit of Highlander and Marvel’s Exiles comic book series. Not that I’m complaining, I’m just sayin’.

    Joseph Chou, Tim Kwok and Bobby Sheng are the film’s producers. The movie is targeted for a 2010 release."


    WTF SCI FI???

    Also anyone heard of Street Fighter: Legend of Chun Li? Who the fuck decided that Kristin Kreuk could act, she hasn't even got big thighs. [​IMG]

    AS A LONG TIME KOF FAN, I'M DEVASTATED.

    THE 3 FIGHTING CLANS BETTER BE RELATED TO OROCHI, RUGAL, OR AT LEAST ZERO AND IGNIS.



    Also, what's with the logo? It looks terrible.

    Wouldn't YOU like to know?
    Is it wrong of me to be worried that this will turn out like the DBZ movie?

    That Saiyan ape thing looked like a lizard and an asparagus had a baby with Down's syndrome.
    Genetic experiment gone wrong...

    Well it will have Darth Maul, so it won't be all bad.

    However, this will almost certainly fail.
