Johnny Cage had been fed up with the lame writing on his current movie "Mortal Kombat: The Death of Johnny Cage," in which his character repeatedly died and was resurrected. To him, his real-life adventures were much more sensational-he kicked butt! But his studio felt that the hero needed to take a fall for dramatic purposes, Johnny Cage reluctantly agreed to continue with the project until the Thunder God Raiden called him away to a new adventure in Outworld.
Upset by the way his adventures had been portrayed in the past, Johnny
Cage found a loophole in his contract and left MCM studios during the
production of "Mortal Kombat: The Death of Johnny Cage". He then used
his own money to fund the production of his next movie, which is rumored
to be the true story of his latest adventures in Outworld.
"Mortal Kombat: Deadly Alliance" broke all records in its first weekend
in theaters, and made Johnny Cage extremely wealthy. The movie told the
true story of how Johnny Cage single handedly saved the world from the
threat of Quan Chi and Shang Tsung's deadly alliance.
