Coming Soon snapped this picture of Smallville's Kristin Kreuk as Chun Li in Fox's upcoming Street Fighter movie at AFM '08.
Joining the ever-growing list of unlikely directors being linked to unexpected projects (following Darren Aronofsky on RoboCop and Sam Mendes on Preacher) is John (Deliverance) Boorman. While the Brit helmer had dabbled in SF and fantasy with films like Zardoz, The Exorcist II and Excalibur, his output is hardly what you'd call easy viewing.

But that's exactly what Boorman's doing next. According to Variety it won't be a musical, so no chance of some duelling banjos, then?
