Maggie Q, the action starlet who played the evil girlfriend of Tim Olyphant in Live Free or Die Hard, has joined the cast of the action film King of Fighters, an English-language, live-action adaptation of a bestselling Japanese videogame that’s lensing in Vancouver, according to Variety. Coincidentally, Q recently completed groundbreaking work, as the star of the game Need for Speed: Undercover, the latest version of EA’s street racing console game.

King of Fighters is being directed by Gordon Chan (King of Beggars, Jet Li’s Fist of Legend), and also stars Sean Faris, Ray Park, Will Yun Lee and David Leitch, who is also handling the action choreography.

The film, which is scheduled to release at the end of 2009, is a co-production of Taiwan’s Double Edge Entertainment, Japan’s Micott & Basara, Inferno Entertainment from the U.S., the U.K.’s Scion Films, Axis Entertainment, Convergence Entertainment and Singapore’s Innoform Media.
