SIDEBAR: After years of silence surrounding the project, the film adaptation of Tekken appears to be inching closer to the megaplex.

A teaser poster for the film surfaced in October, followed by a Variety report placing Dwight Little, director of Anacondas: The Hunt for the Blood Orchid, Steven Seagal's Marked for Death, and Free Willy 2: The Adventure Home, in the director's chair.

Now the film apparently has an actor attached to it as well. In a post on the fan forums of the official Web site of actor Luke Goss (above), an administrator has posted the news that Goss just signed on to play the part of British boxer Steve Fox (below), who joined the series cast in Tekken 4.

Goss rose to prominence in the mid-'80s as one-third of the British pop group Bros. After the band broke up, he turned to acting, and has since appeared in films like Blade II and Charlie.

He is also set to appear later this year in Hellboy II: The Golden Army.
