‘Street Fighter’ packs Hyde Park punch

Duo team to bring vidgame to bigscreen

Ashok Amritraj’s Hyde Park Entertainment and Capcom Ltd. are getting in the ring for a film version of popular vidgame franchise “Street Fighter.” Scribe Justin Marks has been tapped to adapt. Hyde Park and Capcom — Japanese publisher of “Street Fighter” — will produce the film in a joint venture. Pic will focus on the game’s most popular female fighter, Chun Li, but the exact storyline is being kept under wraps. In 1994, Universal released a “Street Fighter” movie starring Jean-Claude Van Damme that featured most of the characters from the game. Hyde Park and Capcom’s film is targeted to bow in 2008, the 20th anniversary of the game franchise. The Street Fighter series helped ignite the arena fighting genre that’s still popular in the vidgame world.
