Report: Kristin Kreuk to Play Chun Li

Kristin Kreuk (pictured left) will be starring as Chun Li in the upcoming live-action film Street Fighter: The Legend of Chun Li, reports

Often referred to as "that cute girl from Smallville," Kreuk has also appeared in feature films EuroTrip and Partition as well as the long-running television teen drama Edgemont.

Jessica Biel (I Now Pronounce You Chuck & Larry, 7th Heaven, Blade: Trinity) had previously been rumored to play the role, which puts the beloved Street Fighter heroine in the central spotlight as she embarks on a seemingly-generic quest for justice.

Directed by Andrzej Bartkowiak (Doom, Romeo Must Die, Cradle 2 the Grave), written by Justin Marks (Masters of the Universe, Fast Forward, Unbroken), produced by Hyde Park Entertainment, and part of Capcom's increased focus on Hollywood, Street Fighter: The Legend of Chun Li is expected to begin shooting in March.

Chris Faylor was previously a games journalist creating content at Shacknews.
