I had the opportunity to talk about the upcoming Street Fighter movie with Street Fighter 6 director and producer Takayuki Nakayama and Shuhei Matsumoto in an exclusive interview at Summer Game Fest.

In April 2023, it was announced that Legendary Entertainment had acquired the rights to a Street Fighter film and television series, causing an uproar in the fighting game community.

It was later announced that the film would be directed by YouTube duo “RackaRacka”, who thrilled audiences with their horror film debut “Talk to Me” that same year.

In May 2024, a logo for the Street Fighter movie was also released – and just a month later, I had the opportunity to ask the minds behind the game itself about their thoughts on the upcoming movie.

When I asked the duo about the film, they admittedly couldn’t give me too much information… but they did reveal that they had a meeting with the team working on the film just that same morning.

According to a translator, there wasn’t much more to discuss, but they claimed that the film was making “progress.”

While not much is known about the film at the time of writing, there are plenty of ways for the filmmakers to approach the Street Fighter storyline, which features plenty of action-packed gameplay and colorful characters.

In a 2023 interview, RackaRacka – consisting of twin brothers Danny Philippou and Michael Philippou – revealed their thoughts on their latest project, saying they were excited to finally bring their fight scenes to the big screen.

“It has such a rich history. It’s just fun and fascinating, and the idea of ​​getting a studio budget to do one of our fight scenes in a feature film is without any restrictions. That’s very exciting,” they said.

This isn’t their first foray into Street Fighter either. Eight years ago, RackaRacka created his own skit, “Real Life Street Fighter,” which featured some spectacular stunts as the brothers competed against each other as Ryu and Ken.

Given Street Fighter’s history in Hollywood, with the game’s live-action adaptation in 1995 starring Jean-Claude Van Damme and Raul Julia, fans are cautiously excited to see what RackaRacka has in store.

Based on our current knowledge, the project is clearly gaining momentum and hopefully we won’t have to wait too long for further information.
