<img src=newspaper.gif border=0>&nbsp;Game Informer Mentions MK3 Movie, and Writer Clarification

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!

Excellent news! I really Hope Mk3 is based mostly in MKDA.

I hope who ever is writing or directing the film, gets information on the story of Mk6, so they will now what to do with the characters and not mess it up.

Like for example, Sonya killed Cyrax in MKA, and in MKDA they work together!

It's nice to finally hear some real news on MK3 and not rumors from fans. If they are to include all the characters from MKDA and some from MK4 the movie should look like a three hour epic I guess. B/c I don't want it to look rushed like MKA was. I wish somebody knew the film's budget right now.

Funny you say that. There was an article in USA Today yesterday about all the film studios buying up all the 'cult other-worldy' movie rights, due to the huge bank behind LOTR. There is going to be all types of 'epic (attempts anyways)' fantasy movies coming out.

HA HA! I saw that "Soap Talk" show on rerun ater hearing about it a while back (about a half year ago), but I wasn't able to get any proof, and no one believed me! In your face, guys! *cough*

Well, seriously now... all we know is Johnny Cage is going to be in it, and Raiden would've been Lambert, but since it's been this long he might've fallen out of it? ....crap.

It's most likely true. Let's just wait and see; Pre-Production will hopefully begin soon, hence an official cast will be announced.

She played in the tv show and movie 'clueless'. In an interview, she said she will play a character named Tanya and will be doing lots of fighting.
