We are introduced to this violent world through the eyes of Jin Kazama, a street fighter that enters the tournament in order to avenge the death of his mother that he blames upon Tekken's powerful and controlling Chairman, Heihachi Mishima. He knows that the only way to get close enough to Mishima to kill him is to win the tournament. With the help of Lucas, an ageing Iron Fist Champion and fight trainer, Jin makes his way through the tournament, but in doing so, he begins to uncover his own past and inner demons as well as exposing a dark underbelly to Tekken that threatens the very existence of humanity.
With futuristic and imaginative sets, a compelling story, and fight sequences combining fighting styles from all over the world. TEKKEN is in line to become one of the greatest action films of all time.
Crystal Sky is planning a prequel to last year's video game adaptation Tekken, which is currently titled Tekken: Rise of the Tournament.
Prachya Pinkaew is on board to direct, although don't expect any Tekken stars to sign on. According to Crystal Sky CEO Steven Paul, the prequel will cast actors who look like the characters from the popular video game series. Crystal Sky doesn't have a distribution deal in place as of yet, but the studio is aiming for a theatrical release.Read More
Director Dwight H. Little discusses making Tekken, deciding which characters to use from the video game, shooting in Louisiana, and more.
Tekken was an instant success when it was first released as a video game back in 1994, which has spawned numerous sequels, spin-offs and rip-offs since then.

Little. Take a look at what he had to say about the video game adaptation, shooting in Louisiana, the tricky nature of assembling this cast, and much more in the interview below.Read More
