Award-winning Greek Australian filmmakers, Danny and Michael Philippou, are in talks with popular video game company Legendary to direct a feature adaptation of ‘Street Fighter’ – the classic video game from Capcom.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, the South Australian twins are being considered after the outstanding success of their feature debut, Talk to Me.
Talk To Me premiered at the Sundance Film Festival and received attention from Hollywood. At the screening, a bidding war ensued for the rights to the film, with A24 paying a seven-figure sum.
Video game company, Legendary, made no comment on the deal.
