For the past three years, rumors have been flying around regarding a third Mortal Kombat
movie and everyone of them have been proven to be false. The latest comes from actor/martial artist Chris Casamassa
, the original Scorpion
in both movies. In an interview with the San Gabriel Valley Tribute
slips that filming for the third Mortal Kombat
movie begins in September
Can this even be possible with the recent legal proceedings between Threshold Entertainment
and Warner Bros.
, new owners of Midway
and the Mortal Kombat
franchise? Could a script and casting have already been completed by Threshold
and the project carried over to Warner Bros.
? Is Warner Bros.
even included in the movie rights? No word on whether the ruling of Threshold Entertainment's
claims to the movie rights to Mortal Kombat
during the bankruptcy proceedings were successful. Both Threshold Entertainment
refuse to comment to TRMK
regarding the movie rights matter.
More rumors and more speculation
tends to equal absolutely nothing even happening with the third film. These appear to be more of the same, so don't get your hopes up for another big screen production featuring your favorite MK characters.
