TEKKEN, the long-awaited live-action adaptation of the Namco video game series completes principal photography in Shreveport, Louisiana at the end of this month. Under the direction of Dwight H. Little (RAPID FIRE), a cast of actors and martial arts experts are headlining the action film, which is due for release in early 2009.
