Check it out, Tekken fans — actor Luke Goss (“Blade 2”) has been cast as Steve Fox in the forthcoming “Tekken” movie. So who is Steve Fox? Apparently he is “a British boxer who was robbed of his memory and was on a search for answers about his past.” Yeah, I hate it when that happens to me, too.
For a lot of fans of Tekken, the sum total of the storyline consisted of listening for “Fight”! and then mashing buttons frenetically for the next 90 seconds. The official story was about a group of fighters in a global competition to the death sponsored by some shadowy corporation. Michael Colleary’s script takes a bit of a detour with the story and makes it a shade more sci-fi. This time they are rebels who are out out to overthrow the evil Tekken Corp.
Bleh. If Uwe Boll isn’t directing this thing, then it’s not worth my time to make fun of it.
