Jessica Biel is reported by LatinoReview.com to be the top choice for the role of Chun Li in 20th Century Fox's game-based movie "Street Fighter."
Those who long for Jessica Biel to get back into action as she once did in "Blade: Trinity" probably can have the chance of seeing the beauty return to the genre soon.
LatinoReview.com has come up with an interesting tidbit informing that the actress is in the line to play the role of Chun Li in "Street Fighter", the forthcoming 20th Century Fox adaptation of the classic fighting videogame. A source for the site said that Biel is the next choice of the filmmakers after Keira Knightley and Jessica Alba both decided to pass on the project.
Pretty much unrelated to the 1994 movie of the same name except for the common source material, the picture is targeted for a 2008 release and has already tapped scribe Justin Marks to pen the screenplay. Plot details are being kept secret for now, but it is learned that the flick will focus on Li, the game's prolific female fighter known for her "Lightning Legs" attack.
