Joey Ansah, Director, writer and creative force behind ‘Street Fighter: Legacy’ has launched a Kickstarter campaign for Street Fighter: Assassin’s Fist, a webseries that has been approved by Capcom. Joey Ansah aims to raise £625,000 in the next 25 days, and those interested can back this project up by visiting its Kickstarter page.
According to its Kickstarter page, Street Fighter: Assassin’s Fist is ready to shoot:
-The screenplays are complete and have been redrafted multiple times to a very refined state.
-We have been casting for the last year and have attached all of our principal cast.
-Physical and dialect/language training has been on going for some time.
-CGI and VFX tests on Hado have been undertaken
-International location scout and selection of perfect shooting locations has taken place.
-Many of the crew and Heads of Department (HoDs) are attached and are excited to begin production.
Joey Ansah and his team aim to release this series – provided it hits its Kickstarter goal – in Winter 2013.
The story of Street Fighter: Assassin’s Fist will center around Ryu, Ken, G?ken, G?ki/Akuma and G?tetsu.
As Joey said:
“It is this Japanese-centric storyline that really grabs me the most. It is a true warrior’s tale; a coming of age story for Ryu and Ken as boys become men; told in parallel with the dark tale of the generation that came before them, filled with tragedy, loss and heartbreak.”
Enjoy – once again – Street Fighter: Legacy and let’s hope that the team will be able to successfully fund this series!
