Maggie Q has joined the cast of King of Fighters, marking the second time this year an attractive half-Asian gal has been tragically linked to an ill-conceived film adaptation of a fighting game. From Variety:
Action star Maggie Q ("Live Free or Die Hard") has joined the cast of "King of Fighters," an English-language, live-action adaptation of a bestselling Japanese vidgame now lensing in Vancouver. Helmed by Hong Kong's Gordon Chan, pic also stars Sean Faris, Ray Park, Will Yun Lee and David Leitch, who doubles as action choreographer. Q, who began her movie career in Hong Kong, is the first film star to feature in a vidgame by Electronic Arts. She fronts "Need for Speed: Undercover," the latest version of EA's street racing game.
But wait, that's not all because she's going to be in the video game itself. Now how rocking awesome is that so let's get back to discussing movies now instead of Maggie Drooling Q Video Games.
