More Details on the Tekken Movie

After it was reported online about, oh, six months ago, Variety has finally confirmed that director Dwight Little will be helming the live-action “Tekken” movie. They also tell us a little bit more the film’s plot from a script by Alan McElroy (the “Wrong Turn” movies).

More:

“The film plays out as a science fiction story set in the near future, about a rebel who rises up against the Tekken Corp. to seize freedom for his people,” Little told Daily Variety. “It’s a gladiator story, but the videogame has a complicated enough storyline that it provides the template for a martial arts spectacular.”

Little is no stranger to martial arts movies, having previously directed everything from Bruce Lee’s son in “Rapid Fire” to the Pony Tail One in “Marked for Death”.

      The anime sucked. It was horrible. At least the Fatal Fury OVAs and the Movie and the SFII animated film were decent. The Alpha’s too, but Tekken was just bad. Sorry. And what’s worse is that next to Mortal Kombat, Tekken has the most coherent story for a fighting game. But I have some faith in this, at least they’re casting martial artists and actors who have martial arts training and background.
