Capcom USA, Inc. and Assassin's Fist Limited have signed an agreement to produce a live-action series based on Capcom's successful Street Fighter video game franchise.
To be called Street Fighter: Assassin's Fist, the series will take the audience back to the formative years of the iconic characters, Ryu and Ken, as they live a traditional warrior’s life in secluded Japan. The boys are, unknowingly, the last practitioners of the ancient fighting style known as ‘Ansatsuken’ (Assassin’s Fist). The series follows them as they learn about the mysterious past of their Master, Gouken, and the tragic and dark legacy of the Ansatsuken style. Can their destiny be changed... or will history repeat itself?
Street Fighter: Assassin's Fist, the brain-child of Joey Ansah, is being brought to the screen by the core team behind the successful fan movie Street Fighter: Legacy.
"Street Fighter: Assassin’s Fist will be what fans have been waiting for. Legacy was a taster; a glimpse of what a live-action Street Fighter should be," said Joey Ansah, announcing the movie. “This takes the story right back to the start - the origins and motivations of Ryu, Ken, Gouken and Akuma. This will become the definitive back-story from which further epic adventures will follow.”
The series is being produced by Jacqueline Quella, whose previous projects include 'Romanzo Criminale' (Crime Novel); Academy Award nominated 'Don't Tell'; and Tobe Hooper's ‘The Toolbox Murders'.
The series will be directed by Joey Ansah who, as 'Desh’, was part of one of the most celebrated movie fight scenes of all time, in 'The Bourne Ultimatum'; and was recently at the heart of the action in 'Snow White and the Huntsman'; and is in the forthcoming ‘The Numbers Station’ with John Cusack.
The series was announced by Capcom's Producer for Street Fighter, Yoshinori Ono at San Diego Comic-Con 2012, and will be distributed worldwide by Content Media Corporation for a release in 2013.
