Director Announced For Tekken Movie; Begins Shooting Feb. 4

Home » Director Announced For Tekken Movie; Begins Shooting Feb. 4

Variety reports that “Tekken” will soon become a major motion picture, and the main shooting will begin on February 4, 2008. It will be a major movie released to theaters in 2010.

Jin Kazama witnesses the death of his mother, Jun, by Tekken in the slums known as Anvil. After finding a Tekken ID, he decides to seek vengeance for his mother’s death.

Starring John Patrick Foo, Kelly Overton, and Marian Zapico.

 Dwight Little is slated to direct. You might remember Little from such major flops as “Anacondas: The Hunt for the Blood Orchid,” “Marked for Death” (best of the best ), and “Free Willy 2: The Adventure Home.”

According to IMDB, the plot involves:

The leader of a highly corrupt business under investigation of murder, Heihachi Mishima, suspiciously announces a tournament to crown a “king of iron fist” whereby the winner will be made his personal bodyguard and will have riches and fame laid upon them. However the tournament is not all it seems, as all of the contestants seem to have their own separate agenda’s to get close to the man looking to employ them. Consequentlly a group of elite fighters, undercover police and assassins team together in the hope of uncovering the truth but slowly realize they are in fact linked together through more than just there goal of killing Mishima.

Principal photography is set to begin on Feb. 4 in Louisiana. I’m guessing, however, that since Mardi Gras is on Feb. 5, actual filming will probably be pushed back by at least a week to allow the no-name stars enough time to recuperate from shotgunning hand grenades.

In the meantime though, just remember “Street Fighter: The Movie”. It will give you all an idea of what can happen when a movie based on a fighting game goes horribly, horribly wrong (other examples include “Dead or Alive” and “Mortal Kombat 2”).

I know the clip might be a spoiler for some of you, but trust me, 40 seconds should be more than enough for anyone.
