Jessica Biel to be a Street Fighter?

by at . Comments

Jessica Biel is gorgeous.

But for an actress that claims she wants to earn a living for her talent more than her looks, we can't say the following choice will help such a cause:

Reportedly, Biel is up for the role of Chun Li in the forthcoming 20th Century Fox adaptation of the classic video game 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. Jessica can at least be thankful for that.

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.

Street Fighter: The Legend of Chun Li Quotes

Vega: [Chun-Li has cut Vega's face and has her foot pressed against his head] You think this is over?
Chun-Li: No. I'm just getting started.

His name's Bison. I've tracked him through eleven major cities on four continents and never come close, not once. This guy walks through the raindrops. Anybody that's against him is either dead, or on their way.
