Australian YouTube sensations Danny and Michael Philippou aka RackaTacka are in final negotiations to direct Legendary’s new Street Fighter movie.
Based on the video game of the same name from Capcom, the project is yet another feather in the cap for the filmmaking brothers whose horror film Talk to Me was one of the highlights of Sundance.
