This Could Be The Best Street Fighter Film Ever Created?

Check out clips and stills from Street Fighter Legacy, an officially sanctioned Street Fighter short film featuring Hollywood talent that could be the most accurate screen adaptation of the World Warriors ever created.



Street Fighter Legacy is the creation of actor, filmmaker, and action choreographer Joey Ansah, known for his role as Desh in The Bourne Ultimatum. Like many Street Fighter fans, Ansah was sick and tired of Hollywood treating our beloved characters like complete shit. Unlike many Street Fighter fans, Ansah has the means and contacts to do something about it.

As an actor, film maker and a fan, I have been repeatedly disappointed by the many diluted, un faithful and outright butchered movie adaptations of fighting video games. It was clear to me, that given the way the movie industry worked, we would never see a super faithful, darker toned and more adult themed (or just plain good!) incarnation of Street fighter unless a die-hard fan director or film-making team with the game canon knowledge, film making know how and connections stepped up to the plate to helm such a project.

So almost a year ago, I began writing treatments and a production design brief and partnered with Streetlight films before proposing my concept and vision to Capcom. I'm pleased to say they gave their blessing and permission for the project to move forward.

Joey gathered together a team that includes Top Gear director Owen Trevor, producer Jacqueline Quella, and Anthony Wayne, a man with senior production credits on the last eleven James Bond films, along with post production/VFX house Prime Focus, all for the purpose of making this short film a reality.

Check out what they've released so far:
