Remember last December, when we talked about ComingSoon‘s report that Kristin Kreuk would be playing Chun-Li in the new Street Fighter movie? Well, they were right — and Kristin just got company.

Variety reports that Michael Clarke Duncan, Chris Klein, Rick Yune, Moon Bloodgood (NBC’s dearly departed Journeyman), Taboo from the Black Eyed Peas, Edmund Chen, and Cheng Pei Pei have joined Kreuk in the 20th Century Fox production, set to begin filming next month. From the article:

Kreuk, who plays Lana Lang in the CW’s “Smallville,” will star as martial artist Chun-Li. Duncan will play Balrog, while Klein is stepping into the role of Nash. Yune is taking on the mystical Gen…Andrzej Bartkowiak (“Romeo Must Die,” “Exit Wounds“) is directing from a script penned by “Voltron” scribe Justin Marks. Hong Kong fight choreographer Dion Lam (“The Matrix“) is handling the extreme fight sequences.

Although Variety notes that the movie’s “plot” is being “kept under wraps,” it’s apparently clear that the latest Street Fighter will focus on Chun-Li. Producers are still searching for the right actor to play the movie’s villain, Bison (Raul Julia is, sadly, unavailable).
