Star-studded Cast Announced for Capcom®'s Live-action
Street Fighter™ Movie

- 2009 world-wide release in celebration of Street Fighter's 20th anniversary -


 Capcom Co., Ltd.(Capcom) is proud to confirm the main cast for its live-action Street Fighter™ movie based on the hugely popular video game series.

 The story revolves around fan-favorite Chun-Li, who will be portrayed by actress Kristen Kreuk (of Smallville fame). Michael Clark Duncan, Neal McDonough, and Taboo of Black Eyed Peas are also on board to round out this all-star cast. The film will be made in conjunction with Hyde Park Films, and will be distributed by 20th Century Fox for a scheduled 2009 worldwide release.

The Street Fighter movie is only one of many projects Capcom has planned to celebrate the 20th anniversary of Street Fighter. Summer 2008 will see the domestic (Japan) arcade release of the much-anticipated Street Fighter® IV.

 Street Fighter was first released in 1987 to critical acclaim for its innovative features. This was followed up in 1991 with the smash hit Street Fighter II, which broke records by being available in 500 thousand arcade cabinets and selling over 25 million units on home systems. These records cemented Street Fighter's reputation as one of the most popular fighting game series of all time, and ensured that the fighting genre would become a staple of the gaming world.

 At Capcom, not only do we strive to make entertaining and profitable games, but we are also always endeavoring to lucratively develop our popular franchises in other media in ways that will please the fans.
