Street Fighter 2010 : Live Action Short Film

‘Street Fighter - Legacy’ a liveaction short film fan project by Streetlight Films production, co-directed by Joey Ansah and Owen Trevor, produced by Jacqueline Quella and stars Jon Foo as Ryu and Christian Howard as Ken. Street Fighter is based on the popular Capcom games.

Stories from GamePro, Ansah said he was eager to sit down with Capcom and talk about plans for more Legacy -- either in a full movie format, or in a series installment.

"The plan was always to do more," he said. "I always wanted to do a series or a movie and this ended up being the best [method]. If the fans get behind it -- which they have -- it's going to make it all the more easy to get the real deal off the ground which is the next step. We would love to do a couple of movies, maybe a trilogy or a prologue series and then a movie."

Going the series route, Ansah and his producer, Jacqueline Quella, said they'd want to do something on Xbox Live where they could get away with charging only a small amount for a series of short films to tell the whole story.

"Given how many fans there are, if you do new media [like] Xbox where you can get content full HD, with great sound, and most people have nice flat screens, I think that's the way to go," Ansah said. "So you could have maybe these 10 minute episodes that you pay maybe 50 Xbox Points or the equivalent of 50 cents. We would like to try something like that out."

"That way the fans get to support the movie," Quella added.

Assuming Capcom goes for it and a format deal is worked out, Ansah's already ready to tackle the next part of the story. His ambition is to tell the back story behind Street Fighter II (since that's where most fans discovered the series), which would require a lot of casting to get young Ken and young Ryu right -- not to mention finding someone to fill Chun-Li's epic thighs.

"Luckily, I have I would say 80 percent of all the characters already cast," he said. "You've seen my Ryu and Ken and me as [nightmare version] Akuma... I've got a lot of the other characters bookmarked. There's a couple that I would need to do quite a wide casting search for. Chun-Li's a tough one."
