Cast, date, director revealed for Street Fighter film

Much like how your mom's boyfriend Ralph will never be your "real dad" we're adamant that there's only one Street Fighter movie for us: The awful, awful Jean Claude van Damme vehicle released in 1994. So we have mixed feelings about a new Street Fighter film being put into production, and a slew of new information on the movie isn't making things any clearer.

We already knew that Street Fighter: The Legend of Chun Li stars Smallville's Kristen Kreuk in the lead role. Joining her is Michael Clarke Duncan as Balrog, Neil McDonough as M. Bison, Chris Klein as Charlie Nash and (wait for it) Taboo of the Black Eyed Peas as Vega. The flick will be directed by Andrzej Bartkowiak, whose last three films were Doom, Cradle 2 the Grave and Exit Wounds. ... Wow, we think our first paragraph just became officially not ironic. We'll find out what this cracker jack team cooks up in 2009.
