As we predicted last month
, film producer Larry Kasanoff
and his company Threshold Entertainment filed a lawsuit Tuesday
against Mortal Kombat owners Warner Bros. Kasanoff is still claiming to hold legal rights to the Mortal Kombat movie franchise and wants involvement in the development of the rumored third feature film
This is a brief rundown of the lawsuit thanks to The Wrap
The lawsuit states that Warners has "failed to work with Threshold in the development and production of the third 'Mortal Kombat' film," and has avoided communication with the Connecticut-based company, which has offices in Santa Monica. In late January, reports surfaced that a "Mortal Kombat" reboot by Warners was under way, including the hiring of a new screenwriter.
I have a feeling this case will not be going away anytime soon, stay tuned for future developments.
