Dwight Little (“Rapid Fire,” “Murder at 1600”) has been been set to direct “Tekken,” a futuristic martial arts actioner based on the bestselling Japanese vidgame from Namco reports Variety.
“The film plays out as a science fiction story set in the near future, about a rebel who rises up against the Tekken Corp. to seize freedom for his people. It’s a gladiator story, but the videogame has a complicated enough storyline that it provides the template for a martial arts spectacular” says Little.
Alan McElroy wrote the script. Crystal Sky Pictures is financing the film, which begins production February 4th in Shreveport, Louisiana.
