Entertainment One has announced plans to team with producer Mark Gordon (“Criminal Minds,” “Designated Survivor”) to develop, produce and finance a TV series adaptation of the “Street Fighter” video game series.
The story will be based on the game’s World Warrior story-arc from “Street Fighter II” and will center on characters Ryu, Ken, Guile and Chun-Li. Together, they fight to take down M. Bison, the evil mastermind who runs the global criminal organization Shadaloo.
Though on different journeys, our heroes’ paths will cross as they are drawn into the World Warrior Tournament, a competition devised by M. Bison to find the most powerful and capable fighter in the world.
On the journey they come to share, they must draw on their strength, skills, intelligence and loyalty in a battle to survive and emerge as the World Warrior.
Joey Ansah, Jacqueline Quella and Mark Wooding, who produced the “Street Fighter: Assassin’s Fist” web series, will executive produce the new TV series.
