Tekken to get movie prequel

May 23rd, 2012 by bash 1 Comment

A sequel to the 2010 movie Tekken is in the offing, the Hollywood Reporter has discovered.

Speaking to the trade, Crystal Sky CEO Steven Paul said his company was planning on making a prequel movie called Tekken: Rise of the Tournament.

“Paul is hoping the prequel, directed by Prachya Pinkaew (Ong Bak), will get a domestic theatrical release although no deal is in place as yet. The movie will not have stars but will have actors who look like the characters in the video games,” the Reporter said.

Plans are also underway to start filming Dracula: The 4 Horsemen of the Apocalypse this summer in Romania.

“It’s the first installment in a franchise about a young, romantic Prince of Darkness, his Army of the Undead and a series of events that shake Transylvania to its core,” said Paul.

Hi all. I'm Bash and love anything and everything to do with Star Wars. Although I've watched hundreds of movies, read dozens of books and played numerous computer games from other genres and franchises since, nothing has come close to seeing George Lucas' epic for the very first time. I hope you all like the site and come back often.
