    Sony on Board for Tekken Movie
    Videogame adaptation goes into production this Fall.
    by Jeff Otto

    May 17, 2005 - Variety reports today that Steven Paul's Crystal Sky has teamed up with Sony's Screen Gems to put a Tekken film into production by late Fall.

    Sony is going to distribute Tekken in North America, Latin America and Australia. The film was originally set up with Dimension at last year's Cannes Film Festival.

    Based on the Namco videogame series, the story of the film revolves around two friends who enter a worldwide martial arts competition. In the course of their progression through the tournament, they discover a secret within the Tekken Corporation.

    Charles Stone (Mr. 3000, Drumline) is tapped to helm the project as well as re-write the latest draft penned by Michael Colleary and Mike Werb. Stone spoke to Sci Fi Wire late last year about his plans for the project: "I'm kind of interested getting back to the whole sports super-conglomerate, Nike thing, and also drugs and steroids and the whole anabolic madness… Right now I'm framing it after sort of Enter the Dragon as a backdrop, but again, more realistic and more accessible. I want it to seem like it can really happen in today's society, despite how grand and superhuman the characters are."

    Screenwriter Mike Werb spoke to Screenwriting Monthly earlier this year about Tekken: "The idea here is to make a realistic movie out of an unrealistic stencil… What we hope to do with Tekken is to entertain both those who have played the game, and those that haven't – there's got to be more than effects and skirmishes on screen to hold an audience."

    Variety reports the budget for Tekken to be around $50 million. We'll keep you posted as more information comes forth.

    no, Jackie Chan would play Law they have such a similar style not to mention appearence. Jet Li would probaly play Lee if anyone, who was modeled after Bruce Lee if you cant tell on your own by the name alone.

    ^^^I think you're confusing Law and Lei...


    Law=Bruce Lee like dude...

    Lei=Jacki Chan like dude...



    btw, the casting that guy did was almost impeccible, shit would have to be the greatest action movie ever if they used that cast...

    ^such a star-studded cast would be pretty much just a dream tho

    with a reported 50 million dollar budget, i'm pretty sure they'll hire no-name actors who can actually do some martial arts, like Mortal Kombat


    J-Lo as Christie Monteiro would be godawful, I don't care how much they look alike...maybe 10 years ago, Lopez woulda been perfect.

    I'd rather see Beyonce play her....
