'Street Fighter: The Legend of Chun-Li', Better Than Original One


'Street Fighter: The Legend of Chun-Li', Better Than Original One
Steven E. de Souza, the director/writer of the original 'Street Fighter' movie, let out what he has to say about the new adaptation flick from the 20th Century Fox.


Sharing his thought about the forthcoming "Street Fighter: The Legend of Chun-Li" to MTV News, Steven E. de Souza gives out a surprising comment about the new "Street Fighter" project. The director/writer of the 1994 "Street Fighter" believes that "Chun-Li" will be a better movie than the original one due to the fact that it focuses on one particular character.

About the Andrzej Bartkowiak-directed movie, he praised, "I heard that it's the story of just Chun-Li. That has to make for a better picture." He also revealed that he cannot wait to see how the characters in the new flick will be portrayed by Michael Clarke Duncan, Chris Klein, Black Eyed Peas' Taboo and other co-stars.

Comparing the new adaptation to his version, he recalled the flaw of the original flick saying, "When we were making the original one, they insisted that all of the characters be in the movie. And if you do the math, that gives you about 7 minutes per character if you split it up equally...And then [Jean-Claude] Van Damme was cast. But he still wasn't in the whole movie, because it was so overpopulated!"

Adapted from the famous series of fighting video games by Capcom, "Legend of Chun-Li" focuses its story on the undercover Interpol agent Chun-Li. Using a script from Justin Marks, it will follow the character known for her 'ox-horns' hairstyle as she seeks for justice. Starring Kristin Kreuk as the titular character, it is coming out February 27, 2009.
