A brand-new Kickstarter has hit the net to raise funds for a forthcoming Street Fighter TV and online series.
The campaign comes from the people behind the Street Fighter: Legacy short, which became something of an online phenomenon when it hit the net in May 2010, receiving over 8m hits and prompting Capcom to grant makers the rights for a series.
The show will be entitled Street Fighter: Assassin’s Fist, and Joey Ansah – best known for roles in The Bourne Ultimatum and Snow White and the Huntsman, and the creative force behind Legacy – will co-write and direct.
“I am a huge Street Fighter fan and have always dreamed of seeing a live-action film or series that does the game justice” Ansah explained. “Three years ago I took action and made part of that dream come true with Street Fighter: Legacy. Now other Street Fighter fans can help me achieve our ultimate dream.”
Two-thirds of the show’s budget has already been raised through traditional means, meaning that the filmmakers just need that final third to get them over the line. By pledging, fans will receive a range of rewards, from copies of the shooting script andlimited edition production books all the way up to costumes worn by the actors during filming.
“A lot of fans pledging small amounts of money can help green light projects that theHollywood studios may not back”, explained the show’s producer Jacqueline Quella. “The Street Fighter fans loved the short pilot we made, Street Fighter: Legacy, so we hope they’ll support our efforts to create something even more amazing.”
The campaign is now live now and can be found by clicking here: Street Fighter: Assassin’s First Kickstarter.
