Rest your gaming fingers for a few minutes because we've got some news for you. If you enjoyed the Tekken movie adaptation that was released in 2010, then you'll be happy to hear that a prequel for the film, entitled Tekken: Rise of the Tournament, is in the works.

The folks over at The Hollywood Reporter sat down with the CEO of Crystal Sky Pictures, Steven Paul, to discuss the Tekken franchise and the film production studio's other plans for the future.

In the interview, Paul explained that both films will be part of the 15-movie output deal that they signed with Anchor Bay Entertainment back in 2010.

Paul is hoping the prequel, directed by Prachya Pinkaew (Ong Bak), will get a domestic theatrical release although no deal is in place as yet. The movie will not have stars but will have actors who look like the characters in the video games.

Paul also discussed a details about Crytal Sky's new Dracula movie that's currently in the works, which the company hopes to turn into a franchise that's comparable to the likes of Twilight.

It's the first installment in a franchise about a young, romantic Prince of Darkness, his Army of the Undead and a series of events that shake Transylvania to its core.

Filming for Dracula: The 4 Horsemen of the Apocalypse will begin this summer in Romania under the direction of Pearry Reginald Teo. Fans of horror flicks might recognize Teo from the work he did on Necromentia, which was an indie movie that drew inspiration from Hellraiser.
