Ong-Bak was pretty good. 2010's Tekken movie was not. The director of Ong-Bak and The Protector, Prachya Pinkaew is taking on the next Tekken movie, a prequel to the 2010 flick named 'Tekken: A Man Called X'.
The upcoming Tekken movie stars Kane Kosugi, who is no stranger to video game fighting movies, having played Ryu Hayabusa in the rather dreadful DOA: Dead or Alive movie from 2006. Update Apparently this is not the case. Kosugi is in fact starring in a movie called Agent X, according to an amendment on his website.
“We would like to apologize for the ineptitude on our part,” reads an update from Destiny Production.
Will Tekken: A Man Called X be awful? If Pinkaew can capture the same kind of martial arts energy he did in Ong-Bak, it may actually be watchable. We remain optimistic. For now.
