New Tekken movie in the works

Ong Bak director to helm Rise of the Tournament.

A brand new Tekken movie, subtitled Rise of the Tournament, is currently in the works, according to production company Crystal Sky.

As detailed by The Hollywood Reporter, it will be a prequel to the 2010 straight-to-DVD franchise tie-in (trailered below), though this time a full theatrical release is planned.

It'll be directed by Prachya Pinkaew, the man behind much-admired 2003 Thai dust-up Ong Bak. The plan is not to cast big-name stars but bring in actors who resemble the characters from the game.

Good luck finding a match for Panda.
