Tecmo and Constantin Film announced today that Cory Yuen (Director of The Transporter, Martial Arts Choreographer for Lethal Weapon 4 and Romeo Must Die) has begun shooting the film adaptation of Dead or Alive, based on Tecmo’s top-selling fighting video games for the Xbox. The shoot is taking place on location in The Yuzi Paradise, Guilin and in The Zhejiang Hengdian World Studios China for Impact Pictures. The film will complete principal photography in Hong Kong. So once again all the video game fanboys will jump on the bandwagon. There has yet to be good video game adaptation, in my opinion - and with the guy who directed The Transporter at the helm, I'm sure we're in for more of the same.

Why hasn't anybody optioned Zelda yet?
