Street Fighter Live-Action Movie Legendary Capcom

New Street Fighter Live-Action Movie is in the Works

Earlier this week, Dune and Interstellar production studio Legendary Entertainment announced that it would be purchasing the movie and TV rights to Capcom’s popular Street Fighter franchise. Like clockwork, Legendary and Capcom have now confirmed that we’re getting a new live-action Street Fighter movie, though more details will only come in the future.

Legendary Entertainment will officially adapt Street Fighter into a new live-action movie, the studio announced with Capcom on Twitter via the Street Fighter account. The tweet just confirms that a movie is in the works at the moment but didn’t offer any more details about what fans can expect. However, more information will be shared in the future regarding casting and the creative team behind the project.

Street Fighter was previously adapted twice onto the big screen with 1994’s Street Fighter starring Jean-Claude Van Damme and Kylie Minogue. Another adaptation, Street Fighter: The Legend of Chun-Li, released over a decade later in 2009. Both movies were critically panned on release.

Street Fighter isn’t the only popular fighting game franchise to get the Hollywood live-action treatment, though. Mortal Kombat was also adapted twice into live-action movies. Paul W.S. Anderson’s Mortal Kombat as well as its disastrous sequel, Mortal Kombat: Annihilation, released in the 90s. The first movie has since gained a cult following and is often cited as one of the better video game movie adaptations. Mortal Kombat was rebooted with more fitting violence in 2021 and fared well enough with critics and the box office to warrant an upcoming sequel.

Tekken, on the other hand, has received a handful of animated projects based on Bandai Namco’s fighter. A lesser-known live-action Tekken movie was also released in 2010 but most fans seem to agree that it was a fever dream and didn’t happen.

No release date has been set for Legendary’s Street Fighter movie.
