‘Tekken’ beckons Dimension

Fantasy actioner will include heavy CG effects

“Drumline” helmer Charles Stone will direct “Tekken,” a feature adaptation of the Namco fighting vidgame, with Dimension Films taking the exclusive option for domestic distribution.

“Tekken,” which translates to “Iron Fist,” will be a fantasy actioner budgeted in the vicinity of $60 million. The production is expected to include heavy CG effects.

Japan’s Gaga Communications and Steven Paul’s Crystal Sky Group are co-financing the project, which they have been developing with Namco since early 2002. The “Tekken” franchise has already produced four games, including spinoff “Tekken Tag Tournament.” A fifth “Tekken” game is on the way.

Supervising the production for Dimension are co-presidents Andrew Rona and Brad Weston, supervised by topper Bob Weinstein.

Stone previously teamed with Dimension on the urban gangster pic “Paid in Full.” His next helming effort, “Mr. 3000,” starring Bernie Mac, will be released through Disney’s Touchstone Pictures Sept. 24.
