Mortal Kombat franchise gets restart

MortalKombat.jpgThe long talked about Mortal Kombat sequel, or possibly prequel, just isn't going to happen. It looks like the franchise is set for a reboot like the much more successful series Batman and Bond.

The film has been talked about for a very long time, and we've had a Director, Writer and even some stars attached, however it's never come to anything more and than talk, but that looks set to change.

An insider over at Moviehole through UK IGN told them that the next film has changed and that they're going to restart the whole franchise by starting at the beginning and recreating the whole franchise.

According to the scooper:

"Threshold had to wait till around early 2000 for the contract with New Line Cinema to end (Threshold blames New Line for the disappointing Annihilation, talking about forced release dates, limited budget, no understanding of anything, etc.)...

...The team at Threshold (the ones that holds the right to MK) are constantly writing drafts (along with the director), which they have to send to Midway (makers of the game) so the creator of the game (Ed Boon) adds notes and some input to the draft, then to the studio (rumored to be Lionsgate at this moment).

The Director, mink, is also talking about the film over on the IMDB message boards and says that the new film will draw from the entire Mortal Kombat universe and that the casting is on hold until after the script is finished. If it really is the Director talking on the site then the good news is that both Christopher Lambert and Robin Shou have both met with him and may well be in the film.

I can't really say I have a tremendous amount of excitement for the Kombat series, but the news that they are looking to the existing stars of the franchise and trying to reboot it, it all looks good for it.

MORTAL KOMBAT MOVIE REMAKE.

A remake of the Mortal Kombat movie is a good start.
Director Mink is talking on it will be like Batman Begins and other movie remakes.
Drew McWeeney and Scott Swan are rewriting the script and Ed Boon could be helping them with the storyline.
The film will not be like Mortal Kombat Annihilation and Mortal Kombat Conquest TV series.
MK Devastation is a good restart.
Thank You.

I thought that the first film was great, and can't wait for this one to hit cinemas!

I am a Huge MK Fan and loved Mortal Kombat Decption!

Mink says he is working on the 3rd MK at the moment I cannot wait for the announcement!!!!!!!!!!

The First Movie was Great stuff, I cannot wait for this Movie to be Announced!!!!

I WOULD LIKE TO SEE THIS MOVIE AS THERE IS SO MUCH MORE STORY TO EXPAND ON - AM ALSO A BIG MK FAN! I WOULD LIKE TO SEE CHRISTOPHER LAMBERT AS RAIDEN ONCE AGAIN!

The only way for that to work if is made onto a R film no bs story line doing on one main person and better CGI with live action no stupid liners and just being true to the game.
