Kristin Kreuk signs on to Street Fighter: Legend of Chun-Li

Tuesday, December 25, 2007

For those interested in Street Fighter, or Kristin Kreuk, CinemaBlend reported a few days ago that Kreuk has signed on to play the role of Chun-Li - and the movie is already garnering a lot of opinions:

You would think that, after the last Street Fighter movie, nobody would want to touch the franchise again. It was an embarrassing flick that pretty much killed Van Damme’s mainstream career and can be blamed for killing Raul Julia period. Okay, maybe that’s taking things to an extreme, but it’s pretty darn bad [...]

The movie will focus on Chun-Li’s journey for justice, which is a hell of a lot better than having the character as a news reporter like she was in the previous picture where she was played by Ming-Na Wen. Ming-Na’s career survived the fiasco of a film, so there’s hope for Kreuk even if the movie doesn’t fare that well.
