Hong Kong actress Josie Ho has joined the cast of the “Street Fighter” remake/reboot/whatever. This newest incarnation of Street Fighter will star Smallville’s Kristin Kreuk, who will be playing Chun Li in the movie. Chun Li is the main character, in case you didn’t “get” that from the film’s title — “Street Fighter: The Legend of Chun Li”. The last time I saw Josie Ho was in the Hong Kong martial arts movie “House of Fury”, in which she played a high-kicking villain. Her filmography on IMDB.com doesn’t necessary show a leaning towards action movies, but she certainly can do some kicking when it’s required if “Fury” is any indication.
Josie Ho has signed on to “Street Fighter: The Legend of Chun-Li,” starring Kristin Kreuk. Lensing on the Andrzej Bartkowiak pic has begun in Thailand. Ho’s most recent credits include Johnny To’s “Exiled” and Kenneth Bi’s “The Drummer.”
Ho joins a cast that already includes Michael Clarke Duncan as Balrog, Chris Klein as Charlie Nash, Neal McDonough as M. Bison, Black Eyed Peas member Taboo as Vega, and Rick Yune as Gen. Other castmembers from Asia includes Singapore’s Edmund Chen and Hong Kong’s Cheng Pei Pei.
