Another Street Fighter short film in the works

Posted by Jonathan 'Catalyst' Grey • August 17, 2010 at 12:16 p.m. PDT
Another Street Fighter short film in the works Trailing in behind Street Fighter: Legacy and Street Fighter: Beginnings End, another Street Fighter short is being filmed with the hopes of turning into a franchise reboot.

LazyGamer caught up with DeVille Vannik, who will be playing Ken for a quick interview. Here's a snip.

So we hear you are working on some Street Fighter promo videos, what can you tell us about the project?

DeVille: Well I can’t say all that much at the moment but it is a promo that will be used by the creators to pitch the idea for a remake to the big shots at Capcom.

Will these videos be used for public viewing, or are they created to try and get more money thrown at a larger project?

DeVille: Yes, the promo will go public and it will also be used to draw some investors to the project.

How many character/actors are involved in the project? Will fans like where it’s going?

DeVille: For this promo its Ken and Chun Li. The storyline is different than what’s been done before so I’m sure fans will enjoy it.

Who are you playing in the promo, and what does it entail? Do you have to kick some ass?

DeVille: I play Ken Masters and in the promo and I’ve come to China to find Ryu, he’s last known whereabouts lead me to a dojo where I meet Chun Li. And yes, there will be some ass kickery for sure.

The people behind Street Fighter: Legacy also talked about moving forward with a mini-series or paid featurettes, but it's been awhile since any additional news has come out about the project.

Thanks to Ognipode for the heads up.

While this is probably going to be better than the last couple Street Fighter movies, I'm still more hyped up about the new MK movie (at least based on the trailer, not sure if they have officially announced that as a real movie yet) if only because they are taking the story in a direction that makes sense.

The stories in fighting games don't really make any sense, if only because there's no clear ending to the plot (its just people fighting each other). If they really want to make this movie succeed, they should use the characters in a way that is more grounded on reality, rather than simply trying to recreate the SF2 storyline.

Yes, but with a better story and better actors. They had the right idea, but they still managed to miss a couple key components.

It had a really dumb plot that wouldn't even make sense in any other movie let alone SF, they hired actors based solely on name recognition rather than actors who could capture the true spirit/personality of the characters they were portraying, and the fight scenes were just terrible. The new MK movie looks like it fixes those problems, and I hope this one does as well.

Jihadjoe it's a different guy playing Ken(the guy in legacy was Christian Howard, this guy is DeVille Vannik) they just used that picture because it looks like a great live action ken.

I'd get DeVille Vannik(the guy in this interview) to maybe play Guile for the Legacy guys, he's got the face for it and his hairs too short to play ken without a wig at the moment

Do something better, or if you can't shut the hell up, because unlike you these guys stepped up.

Former UFC light heavyweight champion lyoto machida would make a great Ryu, although he's half brazillian half Japanese.

legacy was crap...the behind the scenes film was longer than the actual film...

beginnings end was pretty decent though...

I dunno how you could even say decent, it was the same freaking scene! Almost like the 2 film makers were given the same outline and had a contest on who could make the better picture.

well Im pretty sure he will grow his hair out, they haven't started making it yet so im sure they will have plenty of time (Months)for them to get into character. A lot of actors prepare for months for a part or even one scene. Once all is done they wear their hair make up, clothes whatever like they did before.

Sometimes in movies they will film certain middle parts of the film first before starting from the beguinning (like a character going from skinny to fat and vice versa).
