Yes, another Street Fighter movie is being made from the video game series. No, it won’t be any good.
By the way, Jean-Claude Van Damme said he was asked to return to the franchise and turned it down. When JCVD turns down your movie, you should just throw in the towel.
Any way, M. Bison was cast this week. If you’re reading this and actually care who is playing M. Bison, like on the edge of your seat anticipation, then I hate you. There I said it.
Neal McDonough will play General M. Bison. Hooray. No idea what the “M” stands for. Probably “Melvin.” In the story of the games, M. Bison destroys Chun-Li’s village and kills her father.
McDonough is probably best known for his supporting role in Minority Report. Or in “Band of Brothers.” He’s also in Al Pacino’s first ever straight-to-dvd movie 88 Minutes, which is beyond awful but now making it to theaters in April.
Here’s my favorite part of the story. IMDB’s mini biography says he was trained at the London Academy of Dramatic Arts and Sciences. Now he’s playing M. Bison in Street Fighter.
