    from Ign:

    "A new Street Fighter movie is coming! Forget about the silliness of the 1994 film version that starred Jean-Claude Van Damme, Hyde Park Entertainment and Capcom are teaming up to produce a new flick based on the classic fighting videogame.

    Variety scoops that screenwriter Justin Marks has been asked to pen the script for the movie which will reportedly center around the game's prolific female fighter, Chun Li. As you might expect, the other details of the story are being kept secret.

    Marks recently finished writing the screenplay for another project that will likely get fanboys excited, a movie based on the popular 1980s toy line and cartoon series, Voltron: Defender of the Universe.

    According to Variety, Street Fighter is set for a 2008 release; that happens to be the 20th anniversary of the videogame franchise.

    Fans of the franchise may remember persistent rumors from recent years about a new Street Fighter film in development with Dolph Lundgren and Van Damme. There was some additional buzz that Australian actress Holly Valance (DOA) would star -- she might not make a bad Chun Li. However, this news appears unrelated to those rumors and should put them to rest once and for all."

    God (or whatever, mighty pie) help us all.

    You don't need Uwe Boll to mess up a Street Fighter movie... It happens all by itself.

    I swear that Bollywood did a version of The Matrix at one point but I can't find proof.

    All right... Just remember Godfather too. I liked it. But the game took decades after the movie to come.

    And a good game that came out to be a good movie?

    In the first movie Australian singer Kylie Minogue was the English chick, Cammy.

    Seems to be repeating itself, except Holly is awful in whatever she does.

    KIRBY was good... not [​IMG]

    I think the first cartoon Street Fighter was awesome. Silent Hill was alot better than expected! [​IMG]
    This might just be able to become a good movie if he gets actors which actually fit the game's characters.

    I bet I can tell you the plot. 1) There is no plot, just random fight scenes. 2) They will have Chun Li almost completely naked for the entire movie. 3) There will be some corny dialog.
