Capcom has announced that the upcoming Street Fighter movie will be released next year, and has revealed some new additions to the cast.
Michael Clarke Duncan, one of the (literally) biggest actors around and star of such films as 'The Green Mile', 'Sin City' and 'DareDevil', will feature as Balrog. M. Bison will be played by Neil McDonough of 'Band of Brothers' and 'Minority Report' fame, while Chris Klein from 'American Pie' will play Charlie Nash. Taboo, one of the members of the Black Eyed Peas, has interestingly been cast in the role of the metal-claw-and-mask wielding Vega.
It's previously been announced that the movie will centre around the character of Chun-Li, who will be played by Kristin Kreuk, who will best be recognised from her character Lana Lang from TV show 'Smallville'.
"At Capcom, not only do we strive to make entertaining and profitable games, but we are also always endeavouring to lucratively develop our popular franchises in other media in ways that will please the fans," said the company in a statement. Let's hope this new Street Fighter film is a tad better than the last one then, yes?
