Doom Director Signs On For Street Fighter
Andrzej Bartkowiak, the director of 2005's Doom movie, has signed on to direct Hyde Park Entertainment's upcoming Street Fighter film.

Bartkowiak's other directing credits include Romeo Must Die, Cradle 2 The Grave and Exit Wounds, and he has worked as cinematographer on Lethal Weapon 4, Speed and Dante's Peak. So, in other words, Hyde Park has signed an average director to make what will have to try very hard to not be an average film. Unless it's a s**t film, of course.

This is Capcom's second attempt at getting a movie out of its legendary beat-'em-up franchise. The first one, which starred Kylie and some other people, made $33 million (16.3 million) at the box office back in 1994.

The latest film is being penned by Justin Marks, the scribe behind such other nerd fests as Voltron, Super Max and He-Man.

I nominate Pixar...for doing everything...imagine a Street Fighter Movie with 3D animation but with the style of the anime cartoons.

Also gives Pixar the chance to do something more...grown-up with a lot of action but also humor.

I'm really not sure why they are bothering with this, after the Van Damme laced debacle (which even DOA tops). Besides that SF series already has enough anime films and series near enough to the source material, that are actually good.

If this film isn't anime or cg (or a Beowulf like mix), I won't be watching this fall on its face again. I know I should have more faith, but once bitten twice shy and all that.
