Street Fighter Legacy Movie in the Works From an Unlikely Source

Actor, stuntman and martial artist Joey Ansah wants to do the impossible, he wants to prove that a faithful Street Fighter movie can be made and be good at the same time.

After the box office devastation cause by the previously released Street Fighter (1994) and Street Fighter: The Legend of Chin-Li (2009), Joey Ansah and Streetlight Films looks to redeem the Street Fighter's cinema honor with a new live action short that will be called "Street Fighter Legacy".
