Pointless Fighting Game Trivia of The Day: Soul Calibur the Movie
In spring 2001, the plans for a Soul Calibur movie were supposedly in development. A more surprising fact about the Soul Calibur film was who the film’s director was going to be: Sammo Hung. Hung is a well known martial arts film star, choreographer, and mentor to many in the Hong Kong Action Film Genre. This film would have been his first major time directing a film. Eventually, Hung stepped away, and in 2004, rights were moved Anthem Pictures for a 2007 release. At this point, the film had teaser site, featuring the image above, and Nostradamus quote. Again, it never got off the ground, with the teaser site remaining active for years before it too was taken down.
Bonus fact: Sammo Hung, specifically in his role in the film Pedicab Driver, is the inspiration for Bob in Tekken. Thank you @lordmo for that factoid.
