The wait time for another Mortal Kombat film might get a little longer

02.17.2010

Most of us were open to anything MORTAL KOMBAT when news came that a reboot was in the works. Also, lingering somewhere are plans for a third installment of the KOMBAT series. Well, both of these may take even longer than planned.

Threshold Entertainment Inc. has filed a lawsuit against Warner Brothers claiming that Warner Bros shut them out of production on the third film. Threshold owns a licensing interest.

In the early 90's, Threshold entered into a partnership with the game's developer, Midway to develop KOMBAT into a variety of media, including feature films.

The lawsuit states Threshold and Midway entered into a contract in 2006 to develop the third KOMBAT film, including script development and pre-production. However, when Midway went bankrupt last February, Warner Brothers bought the properties. Threshold states that the matters in bankruptcy court upheld its interests and licenses as a part of the sale.

Threshold is also saying that Warner Brothers has failed to work with them on MK 3, and that they have been avoiding any communication with the company.

Well, this kind of sucks, but it's not ruining my day by any means. I'm sure they'll find a way around it and Warner Brothers will get back to work on the reboot as well as the third film (if that still happens). I also look at it from the perspective that this will give the people who are working on it a little bit more time to let their ideas stew around.

Ong Bak for Liu Kang!

I know he's not Chinese, but who else could play this part! I like the suggestion of Robin Shou as Tsung.

I still love Mortal Kombat 1.

To me, it was perfect. If they remake this, then dammit they must have Christopher Lambert still as Raiden, and Robin Shou should be Shang Tsung since he's getting older. They made the first movie for me.

Fuck Threshold, anyway..

I don't see why anyone wouldn't want this. If they fuck it up, who cares? We already had Annihilation. I think WB will put a lot of care into it since it's actually their franchise now. Although, they did make the first teen MK by adding DC.

meh.

the first Mortal Kombat is watchable as almost a decent movie, the second on the other hand should be nominated for DVD Clinic's Awfully Good. MK hasnt really been in demand since the late 90s, i honestly dont think we need another one. i'm just hoping the Tekken movie doesnt make me want to kill myself.

I'm happy to wait as long as I can. I don't give a damn for the franchise. Sure, the game kicked ass back in the day, but that was sixteen years ago or something.

Haha. Seriously? The jackass that is so proud of his Joker costume says people on this site have no taste. I know Heath is dead but you don't have to kill the Joker too.

How does it change the fact that Mortal Kombat is a crappy movie ? And that you have no taste if you love it ?

Aside from Christopher Lambert and Linden Ashby, I think the entire cast of the first movie was perfect. Don't get me wrong, I think Lambert as Rayden was pretty cool, but Rayden is supposed to be Asian. Ashby was also cool, but he didn't bring a whole lot to the character.

Anyway, I don't really care for another MK movie. It was popular in the '90s. I would expect it to tank massively now.
