Joey Ansah (THE BOURNE ULTIMATUM and SNOW WHITE AND THE HUNTSMAN), director and writer of Assassin's Fist, together with cast members Mike Moh ('Ryu') and Gaku Space ('Goki'), took to the stage at the Capcom Street Fighter Panel at San Diego’s Comic Con to announce the latest instalment in the adaptation of the classic videogame franchise.
