The futuristic martial arts video arcade game Tekken is getting the big screen treatment next year. According to Variety, Dwight Little is the man that has taken on the project's directorial choirs.

Little explains, "The film plays out as a science fiction story set in the near future, about a rebel who rises up against the Tekken Corp. to seize freedom for his people. It's a gladiator story, but the videogame has a complicated enough storyline that it provides the template for a martial arts spectacular."

The film will begin shooting February 4th of 2008. A new version of the video game will hit store shelves in January.
