Weird Video Games Coming to the Big Screen

The first movie may not be that weird of an idea since there was a previous one. However it is a video game movie and that movie is Street Fighter: The Legend of Chun Li. All you Smallville fans can be excited to see Kristin Kreuk as the main lead. It will also star Taboo (Black Eyed Peas) as Vega, Chris Klein (American Pie) as Charlie Nash and Robin Shou (Mortal Kombat) as Chun Li's master. Sadly I'm disappointed to say that Ryu and Ken will not be featured in the movie. Aaron Horwitz (the epk producer) quotes "Ken and Ryu will not be appearing in this film. But, that doesn’t mean we wont see our red and white-clad heroes in potential sequels…". If the movie does well who knows we might just see them.

There was another strange title I saw on IMDB. It was The Sims Movie. I love the Sims and I think it's a great game but I'm a little bit worried how the movie will turn out. It will be written by Brian Lynch (who is also writing the script for the Shrek spin-off Puss in Boots). Cross your fingers!

Lastly the champion of the weirdest video game turn movie is Dance Dance Revolution. That's right that's what I said. DDR is going to be a movie. I have no information on it at the moment but I will definitely be keeping an eye on it.

So there you have it some weird movies coming out. I can't wait to see how they turn out.
