Please try to contain your nerdgasms as you watch the clip of the live-action series Street Fighter: Assassin’s Fist.
Though this clip is quite old (having been released at Comic Con), I thought I would keep the excitement alive.
After the success of the fan-favorite short film Street Fighter: Legacy, writer/director Joey Ansah was able to pull the trigger on Street Fighter: Assassin’s Fist with Jacqueline Quella as the producer.
This series is still in the process of filming and has a very impressive cast with actors Hal Yamanouchi (The Wolverine) and Mark Killeen (Game of Thrones) joining the cast, not to mention Joey Ansah’s experience in The Bourne Ultimatum and Snow White and The Huntsman.
For those that couldn’t tell from the video, this film looks like it’s going to stay true to not only the original story line of Street Fighter, but also the original fighting styles from which Street Fighter was inspired. There’s definitely much less of the cheesy Hollywood CGI-enhanced fight scenes and more actual fighting skills.
It’s still not yet certain when the series will air so stay updated with Dorkaholics news to find out more info!
