Cung Le plays Marshall Law in the Tekken movie
The 2009 Tekken movie filming has wrapped up and the movie is currently in post-production. The movie’s story seems to take place at or around the time of the Tekken 6 game. One of the actors in the movie has taken a picture for his Myspace page to show off how he’s dressed up to look like the fighting game character. The MMA star, Cung Le, has been casted as “everyone’s favorite restaurant owning drunkard”, Marshall Law, as you can see above. Joystiq also has a low-res picture of Jon Foo as Jin Kazama.

The rest of the cast consists out of:
Luke Goss as Steve Fox
Gary Daniels as Bryan Fury
Cary-Hiroyuki Tagawa as Heihachi,
Darrin Henson as Raven
Ian Dale as Kazuya
Kelly Overton as Christie Montiero
Candice Hillebrand as Nina Williams
Marian Zapico as Anna Williams
Roger Huerta as Miguel
Randal Reeder as Scared Fighter (every movie needs these ;-))

The Tekken movie storyline is described as: “Set in 2039, the film promises non-stop high flying action as the greatest fighters from around the world come to compete in the last and greatest sporting event of all time – the Fist Tournament. After World Wars destroy much of civilization as we know it, the remaining territories are no longer run by governments, but by corporations the mightiest of which is Tekken. In order to keep the masses down, Tekken sponsors the Iron Fist Tournament in which fighters compete to the death for ultimate glory and receive a lifetime of stardom and wealth.

We are introduced to this violent world through the eyes of Jin Kazama, a street fighter that enters the tournament in order to avenge the death of his mother that he blames upon Tekken’s powerful and controlling Chairman – Heihachi Mishima. He knows that the only way to get close enough to Mishima to kill him is to win the tournament. With the help of Lucas, an ageing Iron Fist Champion and fight trainer, Jin makes his way through the tournament, but in doing so, he begins to uncover his own past and inner demons as well as exposing a dark underbelly to Tekken that threatens the very existence of humanity.” — Via SDtekken
