Screen Gems Gets Rolling With Its "Tekken" Adaptation

Variety brings news of the next video game movie to hit production. The title is "Tekken," and the property was picked up by Screen Gems (from Dimension), with a production date scheduled for late fall. Director Charles Stone III ("Drumline," "Mr. 3000") is an admitted fan of the "Tekken" video game, which is news that might give other fans some high hopes for the movie version.

Mr. Stone will rewrite the original screenplay, which was written by the team of Michael Colleary & Mike Werb ("Face/Off," "The Mask"). Those unfamiliar with the video game will want to know that the story "centers on two childhood friends who enter a worldwide martial arts tournament. As they progress, the pals move toward uncovering a secret that lies within the mysterious Tekken Corp."
