With Street Fighter 6 poised to take the fighting game community by storm, Legendary Entertainment secured film and TV rights from Capcom back in April 2023.

Twin brothers Danny And Michael Philippou are generating buzz from their horror film, Talk to Me and signed on to helm the project."

Since then, there's been little news on the film, however, the twins are at SDCC to promote Talk to Me, where Collider caught up with the pair to discuss the forthcoming video game adaptation.

Danny Philippou shared his excitement to work on such a large IP that doesn't have the trappings of other big movie franchises (Star Wars, Marvel, etc.).

"I think it's awesome that we have such a connection with the game and to the characters, and there's not like a pre established big film franchise where we have to fall in line [with] an overall plot. I think that we'd have the freedom to create what that overall arc could be if it was gonna be a bunch of films."

"And also, we'd love the chance to do an action film. We'd love the chance to do big set pieces of a big budget because even on our YouTube stuff, we're designing stunt rigs that had never been done before, and to do that on a grand scale, man, I feel like we could create something no one's ever seen before."

Michael added, "And I think it's like, diving into the lore of Street Fighter, all the characters, where they come from has been so exciting. You just get endless ideas, so putting them to the screen, yeah, I think we can make something special."

Back in April, Legendary was said to be producing the film with Capcom and was currently selecting a screenwriter.

However, with the current ongoing WGA and SAG-AFTRA strike showing no signs of slowing down, Street Fighter fans might be in for a long wait before any additional news breaks on the project.
