Tekken movie…What you say?

Tekken“I like Jim Carrey, and I like video games. But does that mean I’ll like a video game about Jim Carey” as the saying goes, and we were thinking just that when we picked up this news from the Internet Movie Database (IMDB) website.

It seems that around this November 4, there was an announcement that a Tekken movie’s in the works. Quoting the site: “A high-octane action movie about a young man who discovers he holds a great power and must battle a team of elite fighters who will stop at nothing in order to get it from him.”

We’re not sure if this talks about Jin Kazama or his old man, Throw-Me-In-A-Volcano Kazuya Mishima, but it looks like Namco’s wanting in on the silverscreen, more so after the recently released DOA movie (When the fans think it bombed despite Kasumi‘s presence, you know something’s wrong). Well, it’s too early to tell what’s gonna happen since it’s just a production announcement.

If it means anything, Charles Stone III, of “Mr. 3000” and “Drumline” fame, is directing this fight flick, with a story partly written by Martin Colleary, who also wrote the story for the original Tomb Raider flick in ’01. And nope, there’s no announcement on the cast of characters yet, but being the Tekken fanboys/girls we are, we couldn’t resist coming up with our own list for the “dream team”

  • Lei Wulong = Jacky Chan
  • Marduk = Bas Ruten
  • Bryan Fury = Jean-Claude Van Damme (Matching egos)
  • King = Rey Mysterio/Batista
  • Lili = Britney Spears/Paris Hilton (?!)
  • Ling Xiaoyu = Zhang Ziyi
  • Feng Wei = Jet Li
  • Sergei Dragunov = Christian Bale/Johnny Depp (Edward Scissorhands, remember?)
  • Bruce Irvin = Samuel L. Jackson
  • Paul Phoenix = Chuck Norris/Johnny Bravo

This is just a partial list, so feel free to comment on who else you want in. Go wild.
