Namco announced a full lenght CGI feature film Tekken movie for summer 2011. Movie is created by Digital Frontier, who did Resident Evil: Degeneration, and scribed by Dai Sato, writer of Cowboy Bebop.
Tekken creator Katsuhiro Harada Joked:
There was a Tekken movie before from Hollywood but please forget about that.
A spectacular second trailer has been released for Beyond Black Mesa, a live action short film set in the Half Life universe.
The film tells the story of Adrian Shephard, a member of the human resistance movement. He has one mission: to get a message to City 17 about the incoming Combine invasion. It’s a tough assignment. The Combine know who he is, and are hot on his tail.
Katsuhiro Harada, Tekken 6 producer, distances himself from feature film adaptation, emphasizes that he had no supervision over “terrible” project.
Game players often bemoan seeing their favorite franchises turned into feature film failures, but it’s not so common to hear the game makers themselves griping about such adaptations. That’s not stopping Tekken series producer Katsuhiro Harada from weighing in on Crystal Sky Pictures’ live-action Tekken film as it launches on Blu-ray and DVD in Japanese stores this week. When asked by a fan about a character’s motivations in the film, Harada responded bluntly on his English-language Twitter feed.
“That Hollywood movie is terrible,” Harada said. “We were not able to supervise that movie. (It was [a] cruel contract.)”
When another user called the film “a disaster” and implored Harada to prevent another such abuse of the franchise, the producer put his virtual foot down.
“Please don’t ask me about that movie,” Harada wrote. “We did not have the supervision right. I don’t want [to] talk about that.”
Based on Namco’s popular series of fighting games, Tekken movie will focus on Jin’s story and it’s said that the movie will be given an R rating. The movie will directed by Dwight H. Little and the main actors include Luke Goss who stars as Steve Fox, Jon Foo who stars as Jin Kazama. Below is a photo of Jin Kazama.
