View Full Version : Jessica Biel in new Street Fighter Movie..... as Chun Li?!

This doesn't make any sense at all.

From IGN.com (http://movies.ign.com/articles/786/786322p1.html)


May 8, 2007 - There's not much we can say about Jessica Biel's hotness that hasn't already been said. If you've seen the trailer for her next flick, Adam Sandler's I Now Pronounce You Chuck and Larry, you'll know that she gives us a little taste of the good stuff in that one -- Biel rocks her skibbies in a scene that's sure to get the former 7th Heaven actress some buzz. What will she do to top that? How about a little cosplay action?

Biel, according to a rumor posted on the LationReview.com website, is up for the role of Chun Li in the forthcoming 20th Century Fox adaptation of the classic videogame Street Fighter. A source for the site claims that Keira Knightley and Jessica Alba have already passed on the Hyde Park-produced project and that Biel is next in line for an offer.

The new film will be pretty much unrelated to the 1994 silliness that starred Jean-Claude Van Damme, except for the common source material.

Screenwriter Justin Marks has been hired to pen the script for the movie which will center around the game's prolific female fighter, Chun Li. Other details of the story are being kept secret.

Street Fighter is targeted for a 2008 release --the 20th anniversary of the videogame franchise.

OK.... so, WTF? Now, it's remotly understandable to approach Jessica Alba for Chun Li, she's like half Spanish half Filipino, which is still a huge and ridiculous stretch. While Biel is absolutly drop dead gorgeous, can appear somewhat "exotic", and would look fucking stunning in anyone of Chun-li's outfits.... I mean, what the hell is this? To say nothing of Keira Knightly?!

Now, anyone of those women would be fucking great as Cammy, no arguement whatsoever, and for all we know that's what they approached Knightly for; all this as Chun Li casting just isn't making any sense at all.

Seriously, WTF?

Here's a great picture of Biel from People Magazine that is purportedly sans make-up. I mean, she's beautiful, no doubt, and she'd be great for Cammy..... but how the HELL does this face say "Chun Li"?!

And while I'm at it, here's a great pic of Jessica Alba as a blonde with glasses in the next Fantastic Four flick. Again, gorgeous, perfect Cammy, but Chun Li?

Gameplay

Chun-Li's fireball special (Kikouken), introduced in 1994.Chun-Li is the original fast character in the Street Fighter series, utilizing multiple rapid attacks rather than the slow damaging strikes of larger characters like Zangief. Her agile and swift movements are a favorite amongst game-players. It is interesting to note that in the early days of arcade fighting games, many other female characters played in a similarly speedy style. Most likely other game developers were following the example set by Chun-Li.

In Street Fighter II' Turbo: Hyper Fighting, Chun-Li was the original hybrid character, using both charge input moves like Guile, and command input moves like Ken. However, Chun-Li depends less on her special moves than other characters, and more on her normal kicks and punches and dexterity to overwhelm an opponent. This was also the time Chun Li's new power was introduced in a form where she can produce Kikouken (Force Fist), similar to Ryu's and Ken's fireballs, but slightly weaker.

Matsufubu

Yes, Jessica Alba for Chun Li, and Jamie Foxx for Ken. I mean, he's popular at the minute, right? So let's cast him regardless of suitability!

Asian American actors have an extremely hard time getting roles. They are often typecast in the stereotypical laundry service/delivery guy/exotic girlfriend role. They complain that the only way to get roles is to learn kung fu just to play back up to some white hero.

But seriously...how fucked up is it when a Chinese girl isn't even put into consideration for the role of a Chinese girl?!?

While it was a little odd, Wilson Fisk is not a name that truly denotes ethnicity in the United States. Furthermore, the Kingpin of Crime is just that, every ethnicity in America is innvolved in crime. How you can say that having a black guy as Kingpin makes less sense than casting a white girl as Chun Li, a kung-fu expert from China, is fucking beyond me.

But then, you've rarely ever made sense.

Kingpin is very clearly notblack in the comic books. Casting a black man as the Kingpin makes as much sense as casting Sammo Hung as Malcolm X.

She's hot, she speaks perfect English, and has done a bit of Sanda.

Jesus H. Christ what is so hard to understand about this?

It is not odd to cast Wilson Fisk- a name which in America can apply to pretty much anyone- as a black guy.

It is odd to cast Chun Li, an ethnicly Chinese woman born in and from China, as a white girl.

God damn, was I not speaking in English?! Shawarma was saying he thought it was more appaling that Fisk was cast as a black man than that Chun Li might be cast as a white girl, and I am stating- rather logically, or so I thought- that his position is patently absurd!

Jessica Biel should NOT be Chun li, despite her obvious hotness. Hollywood is being as fully fucktarded as usual. The fact that they are making another Street fighter movie is all the evidence of this we need.

The thing about Fisk is that his race is interchangeable. He's an American crime lord. This does not in any way indicate his race. He probably wouldn't be hispanic or asian, but he could be a variety of other etnicities. He could be Al Capone or he could be Jeff Fort. Who knows? Chun Li however indicates a Chinese character.

11th May 07, 08:17 AM
Yes, originally Psylocke was a blonde English girl. Then when her original body died, she used her considerable psychic abilities to just transfer her whole brain over to a comatose Asian girl..... but that is her Ultimate story line.

Originally


In issue #213 of Uncanny X-Men, she joined the X-Men. After passing through the Siege Perilous to escape the Reavers, she was discovered by the ninja group The Hand who, with the help of Mojo, switched her mind and body with that of the assassin Revanche (aka Kwannon) to save the latter’s life. Psylocke emerged with Kwannon’s body and ninjitsu skills, plus a severely complicated psyche.

So, anyways.

Now, if Capcom had ever once portrayed Chun Li as some poor orphaned white girl whose parents like died in China, that she was like taken in by some kindly monks or even became a ward of the state then maybe there'd be something to casting a white girl as Chun Li. But come on!
