So the Tekken movie gets a director

tekken jin kazamaI'm getting more and more skeptical about the upcoming Tekken movie. Why? Because Dwight Little is going to direct it.

Dwight Little is going to be the DIRECTOR for the TEKKEN MOVIE!

So what's the big deal? Nothing really, especially if you liked Little's other movies like Anacondas: The Hunt for the Blood Orchid, Murder at 1600, Rapid Fire and Marked for Death.

What will Tekken's plot be?

According to Little:

"The film plays out as a science fiction story set in the near future, about a rebel who rises up against the Tekken Corp. to seize freedom for his people. It's a gladiator story, but the videogame has a complicated enough storyline that it provides the template for a martial arts spectacular."

Oh puh-leeeeze.

Tekken is one of the many video game-based movies that are set to come out in the following years. For a list of those movies, click here.
