The Hollywood Reporter spoke to Crystal Sky CEO Steven Paul, who revealed that the company is planning on making Tekken: Rise of the Tournament, based on the popular video games and a prequel to the 2010 movie Tekken.
“Paul is hoping the prequel, directed by Prachya Pinkaew (Ong Bak), will get a domestic theatrical release although no deal is in place as yet. The movie will not have stars but will have actors who look like the characters in the video games,” said the trade.
Crystal Sky will also start filming Dracula: The 4 Horsemen of the Apocalypse this summer in Romania under the direction of Pearry Reginald Teo (Necromentia).
It’s the first installment in a franchise about a young, romantic Prince of Darkness, his Army of the Undead and a series of events that shake Transylvania to its core, said Paul. He added that the intent is to create a franchise like “Twilight” with more movies in the future.
