As the Cannes Film Festival comes to a close, Variety has reported that a live-action feature film based on SNK's King of Fighters series of videogames is confirmed for production.
Japan's Micott & Basara and the American distribution company Arclight Films will be jointly financing the project. Joseph Chou (who is also currently working on the Appleseed sequel Ex Machina) and Tim Kwok (Wicked City) will co-produce the film, with Hong Kong film industry veteran Gordon Chan (most familiar to Western audiences as the director of Jackie Chan's 2003's The Medallion) signing up to direct. Shooting is scheduled to commence in the first quarter of 2008 in Asia.
