    "Best News Ever, A Movie!!!

    Possibly the most exciting news since we learned Sammo will starring in a TV show in the US is the report that Sammo may be directing and starring in a big Hollywood movie! Sammo is reportedly the first choice to direct and play the starring role in VIRTUA FIGHTER, a movie based on the popular Sega video game. Early reports say the film is to be budgeted at around $40 million and will sport an ensemble cast of newcomers from around the world. Check back with SammoHung.com for more on this incredible news."


    This can be read in the news archives on <a target="_blank" href=http://www.sammohung.com>Sammohung.com</a>, specifically in the news of april 2000.

    I think it's safe to say that the movie hasn't been released, but what happened to it? And even more, isn't the possibility that Sega was/is planning a VF movie exciting? /versus/images/icons/smile.gif

    Granted, the story and stuff would most likely be crap, but hey, that's something we're used to by now.. /versus/images/icons/wink.gif

    I think it's turned out to be the Soul Calibur movie.

    I don't mind if Sammo is in the movie or directing it. There is a good chance that if Sammo is in that perhaps Jackie Chan or Yuen Baio (pardon my spelling). I could see Yuen or
    Jet Li (maybe) playing Akira. Who Sammo would be, I do not know.

    Does this mean that "Sam Seed" will be Shun Di? Perhaps the guy who played Shang Tzung in Mortal Kombat could play Lau.
    Who knows?

    Jet Li would play Lei Fei, for sure, thats the role that suits him most.

    What about the female characters ? Pai, Aoi, Sarah, Venessa ?

    Sammo could play Taka /versus/images/icons/smile.gif

    Yeah Jet Li is Lei not Akira at all.
    Jeffry is probably best played by some muslim arab, if they weren't all skinny...(really, they're about as close it gets)

    She was the younger female lead in Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon. A Beautiful woman indeed.

    I don't think the whole Game to movie deal works. Games are supposed to be larger than life, beyond common reality. There aren't many people in the world who have builds like the VFer's let alone acting skills.

    I just don't think it would work in real life. Now an Anime like Street Fighter 2 would be great.

    There is already VF anime, with Akira that eats alot /versus/images/icons/smile.gif

    What about Computer Generated VF movie, like Shenmue movie ?

    The only Manga/Anime/Game things, that was good, I thought was City Hunter with Jacky Chan, that guy is pretty damn close to Saeba Ryo, except Jacky Chan is no where near as horny as Saeba in that movie. /versus/images/icons/smile.gif
