Filmmakers Danny & Michael Philippou Exit Planned ‘Street Fighter’ Film

The streets are empty for Danny and Michael Philippou. The Australian twin filmmaking duo behind last year’s surprise horror hit Talk to Me are no longer working on Street Fighter, Legendary’s feature adaptation of the classic video game from Capcom. Scheduling is partly to blame.

 

Legendary and Capcom were hoping to begin sooner than later. The Philippous, however, shifted focus to Bring Her Back, which reteams them with their Talk to Me studio A24. That project, which will star Sally Hawkins and Billy Barratt, begins shooting later this month in Australia. Street Fighter is now looking for a new filmmaker. Street Fighter is one of the more enduring fighting video game franchises of all time.
