Maggie Q has joined the cast of King of Fighters, based on the hit videogame series from the mid to late nineties. She’ll be fighting alongside Ray Park, Sean Faris, Will Yun Lee, and David Leitch. Gordon Chan (Fist of Legend, The Medallion) is directing the $12 million film due for release in late 2009.
The King of Fighters videogame series ran from 1994 through 2005, although a new entry is due late this year. While the plot of the games usually centered on fighting tournaments (obviously) they included side stories involving magic, intrigue, and conspiracies. I’m guessing the movie will keep it simple and just stick with the fighting. There’s no announcement yet as to which character Maggie Q will embody.
