The crazy movie news keeps rolling out of Cannes 2012. The Hollywood Reporter relays word that Crystal Skys CEO Steven Paul is planning a prequel to the 2010 live-action Tekken movie, based on the popular video game of the same name. This is despite the fact that the first Tekken movie become embroiled in a high-profile lawsuit.
It gets even better. Steven Paul claims that Prachya Pinkaew of Ong Bak and The Kick will direct the prequel, titled Tekken: Rise of the Tournament. Paul is also hopeful for an American theatrical release this time around (the first Tekken went straight to video). No stars have signed on yet but Paul wants actors who look like their video game counterparts. What say you: does the world really need another Tekken movie? In the meantime, check out our review of the first flick.
