Word on 'Street': McDonough


Neal McDonough has joined the ensemble cast of "Street Fighter: The Legend of Chun-Li," the film adaptation of the popular Japanese video game being produced by Hyde Park Film Entertainment.

McDonough ("Minority Report") will play the powerful and elusive villain Bison, the sworn enemy of the film's heroine Chun-Li ("Smallville's" Kristin Kreuk).

Andrzej Bartkowiak directs a script penned by Justin Marks. The cast includes Moon Bloodgood, Michael Clarke Duncan, Chris Klein and Taboo from the Black Eyed Peas.

Hyde Park's Ashok Amritraj and Patrick Aiello are producing. Video game publisher Capcom is executive producing. Filming began this week in Bangkok, Thailand, and will include locations in Hong Kong and Vancouver.

Hyde Park has a first-look production deal with Fox, which is distributing "Street Fighter" domestically. Hyde Park's upcoming projects include "The Other End of the Line" for MGM and the 3-D film "The Dark Country" for Sony's Stage 6.
