SF film writer explains Chun-Li focus

Street Fighter movie writer Justin Marks has said he picked Chun-Li as the focus because films are about unexpected heroes, and not so he could have a "blatantly sexualised female lead".

He acknowledges that Ryu and Ken are "the muscle" of the familiar series, but says Chun-Li is the "heart and soul" because her father was taken from her; she is the little girl that everyone wrote off.

The part of Chun-Li will be played by lovely Smallville [and Edgemont - Dep Ed] star Kristin Kreuk, but Justin Marks sees her in more of a Ripley from Aliens role than any-of-them from Dead or Alive.

Too bad the movie is going to suck.

Kakkoii3753d ago

To bad that's a biased view and shouldn't be said until you've seen the movie. And even then it's a matter of personal preference.

Not all movies based on video games are bad.

Fishy Fingers3753d ago

Think I'm probably gonna go with skerj on this one. but you never know.

One thing that I kind of like is casting Michael Clarke Duncan as Balrog.

I'm a Street Fighter fan of the biggest proportions (I know more about the story and universe than anyone should), but I can see BS when it's coming. This movie is going to be one in the long line of horrible video game movies.

Honestly I hope it's not because it looks like they're at least trying to stick to some source material for once, but that still doesn't change my view (and possible outcome) of this film until it proves otherwise.

I'm a huge street fighter and DBZ fan and i mean HUGE. With that said both movies will absolute Garbage. If They were making a CG DBZ movie id be bouncing off the walls. Look, Chun li is a side character, thats like making a spiderman movie with harry osborne as the lead hero does not make sense. Ryu and Ken are the hero's of the street fighter universe. All i can say is Street Fighter The Movie.

Is NOT a good choice for Chun Li. I've said that in the beginning, and I'll always say that.

You want a good choice, check this girl out.
