Cung Le / Roger Huerta – Tekken: Release Date TBC 2010
Plot: “A high-octane action movie about a young man who discovers he holds a great power and must battle a team of elite fighters who will stop at nothing in order to get it from him.”
Cung Le took a much publicized break from fighting and vacated his Strikeforce middleweight title to work on movies, and action flick Tekken is perhaps the most profile one he’s been involved with.
Based on the popular video game series, Le takes the role of “Marshall Law” alongside fellow MMA fighter Roger Huerta who also put his MMA career on hold to take a smaller role as “Miguel Caballero Rojo.” It’s safe to say there isn’t much acting required from either guy here, but their flashy fighting skills will certainly can in handy.
Both fighters clearly had high hopes for the film, but despite the loyal Tekken fan-base this one has failed to get US cinema distribution so far. It will be released in Japan on the 20th of March, but will go straight to DVD in the UK on April 5th.
Here’s the trailer for the movie which includes a very brief glimpse of both Le and Huerta.
