Kristin Kreuk looks ready to either fight, or lead her backup dancers through the big moment in an ’80s music video.
“Street Fighter: The Legend of Chun-Li” opens today, so we need a little time to tell how successful it will be. But if it does, then there will be the inevitable talk of a sequel. And if that does happen, well, no worries about recasting necessary–The MTV Movies Blog spoke to the stars of the film, and they’re all in.
Taboo, who plays Vega, says: ““Hands down yes.” Michael Clarke Duncan, the film’s Balrog, says, “Absolutely…Because once you see a movie with these characters, you don’t want to see any other actors but them playing those characters. It’s kinda hard to switch it up and say ‘Now it’s gonna be this guy.’”
Kristin Kreuk, the title character, would want in again because she “…would love to go in there and work on some more skills.” Neil McDonough and Chris Klein said they would be up for it also.
Congratulations, actors! You have just given yourself no negotiating room for your next contract! Now that the studio knows that you’d love to do it, they’re going to say, “How much do you want? Say, Mr. Duncan…how would you like to see, say, Arnold Schwarzenegger in your part? He’s getting back into the biz. And you, Ms. Kreuk, don’t worry, you can always pay a trainer to teach you those skills…while you’re unemployed!” Announce that you’d love to do a sequel, kids, and the studio will test whether you’re prepared to do it for love.
McDonough did make one request, though–that director Andrzej Bartkowiak had to return. Make that feeling known, Mr. McDonough–maybe you and Bartkowiak can have your agents team up to play a little hardball.
