At last the right one to play the titular heroine in "Street Fighter: The Legend of Chun-Li" is ultimately found. ComingSoon.net has come up with news claiming "Smallville" star Kristin Kreuk has been signed on to play the female fighter in this Hyde Park Entertainment's live-action adaptation of the popular Capcom video game.
Principal photography is reported to start in March 2008 using locations in Thailand with 20th Century Fox handling the distribution matters. "Doom" helmer Andrzej Bartkowiak has been tapped to direct from script by Justin Marks, which focuses on Chun-Li's journey for justice.
A 25-year-old Canadian beauty of Chinese descent, Kreuk initially gained notice in local TV series teen soap "Edgemont" before receiving her big boost in The CW's "Smallville" as Clark Kent's star-crossed love Lana Lang. Apart from her acting career, she is also recognized as the spokesmodel for Neutrogena, a role she has taken since 2002, making her the longest-serving model spokesperson for the company so far.
