MovieSet Blog reports that the King of Fighters movie started filming on November 27. The movie is being directed by Gordon Chan (Fist of Legend, The Medallion) and bring written by first timer Rita Augustine. According to MovieSet Blog:
"The movie stars Maggie Q (Live Free and Die Hard), Sean Faris (Never Back Down), Will Yun Lee (Elektra), Francoise Yip (Aliens vs. Predator - Requiem), Monique Ganderton (Supernatural) and the coolest Sith Lord ever, Ray Park (a.k.a. Darth Maul from Star Wars: The Phantom Menace). It also looks like the King of Fighters movie will introduce a new science fiction spin into the setting established in the games’ universe by following the surviving members of three legendary fighting clans who are continually whisked away to other dimensions by an evil power. As the fighters enter each new world they battle that universe’s native defenders, while the force that brought them seeks to find a way to invade and infect our world."
I'm a little bit scared of this one. Ray Park's fighting scenes should be good, but...yeah. Between the interdimensional twist and how fiercely The Medallion sucked, I won't be expecting too much from King of Fighters. Though I have to admit, I'm curious to see if they get Mai Shiranui's costume down. What do you guys think about the movie? Scared? Excited? Indifferent?!?
