Game Informer Mentions MK3 Movie, and Writer Clarification

01-21-2004 :: Posted at 12:04 AM EST by DArqueBishop
In Issue 130 of Game Informer magazine, there is a short article concerning Mortal Kombat. At the end of the article, the following comment is made:
Strangely though, a third Mortal Kombat film is in the works, with a script by Drew McWeeny of the popular movie site Aint It Cool News.
Based on this article, Cory "Shinnokxz" Hansen of The Unofficial Mortal Kombat 3 Homepage contacted Drew McWeeny, who had this to say:
I can tell you that in 2001, I was contracted with my writing partner to write MORTAL KOMBAT 3. We wrote several drafts of it at that point.

As I understand it, Threshhold has been dealing with legal rights issues for the two years since.

Word is, they're untangling those rights now finally and plan to move forward with the film. I seriously doubt we'll be doing any further work on it at this point, and I'm not sure what script they'll finally put in front of the camera.
In addition, there is now a sound rip of the program where Linden Ashby (Johnny Cage from the original movie) is commenting on having been shown a script on the same site. While this is not confirmation that the movie is in development, it is strong evidence that the movie is still in development.

To read McWeeny's response in its entirety and listen to the interview with Ashby, click here. The Game Informer article is not available online, but should be available on newsstands now!

Our thanks to forum/chat members Cham and Shinnokxz for the heads-up on this story!
