MGM is remaking the movie FAME with a more diverse group of dancers. The story will still take place in the famed New York High School of Performing Arts, and follow a group of students from auditions to graduation day. We found a new video highlighting the new members of fame.
One of the dancers is Anna Maria Perez de Taglé. You may remember her from Camp Rock and Hannah Montana. The part Filipino-American actress/singer is also the granddaughter of Filipino star Sylvia La Torre.
Also directing the film is Kevin Tancharoen. His experience includes directing “Britney Spears Live from Miami” and “The Pussycat Dolls Present: The Search for the Next Doll”. FAME will be his first feature film. (Kinda makes us think of Jon M. Chu with Step Up 2). Another interesting fact is that Kevin is the brother of Maurissa Tancharoen from “Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog”

Tiger Woods talked about what he missed the most prior to his return to competition at the 2009 World Golf Championships-Accenture Match Play Championship.

Are you ready for Street Fighter: The Legend of Chun-Li? Smallville’s Krisitn Kreuk has the lead role of Chun-Li. The half-Caucasian/half-Asian beauty who gave up a life of privilege to become a street fighter, battles for those who cannot fight for themselves. Her kung fu master, Gen (Robin Shou), once a feared criminal, who now fights for the forces of good. All the action takes place on the streets of Bangkok.
Tons of Asian and Asian American actors in the film. Here’s just a few:
Kristin Kreuk as Chun-Li
Robin Shou as Gen
Josie Ho as Cantana
Pei-pei Cheng as Zhilan
Edmund Chen as Xiang
The action is also directed by Dion Lam of Matrix fame. It doesn’t look like it will be like the 1994 Jean-Claude Van Damme film with Ming-Na Wen as Chun-Li. Take a look at the action clip at the beginning of Kristin Kreuk’s interview on G4TV. If the movie is not enough for you, you can play Streetfighter IV on your favorite game console.

YouTube added “Battle of the Sexes” by Planet B-boy as a feature video on its homepage recently. Here’s the story line:
Two b-boys meet two office ladies and try to impress them through their dance. They’re not impressed.
The music and style should feel familiar cuz it is done by Planet B-boy director Benson Lee with music by Woody Pak. The video is actually a commercial for Southpole Clothing.
Check out Planet B-boy if you haven’t. Last year Planet B-boy was released on DVD and Planet B-boy was at YouTube Live.
