Warners Prepare For Mortal Kombat

Flawless victory unlikely

Source: Bloody Disgusting

Prepare for the return of Johnny Cage and Liu Kang, Raiden and Subzero and Scorpion and Baraka: Warners are looking to resurrect the moribund Mortal Kombat franchise.

Bloody Disgusting are reporting that Oren Uziel, whose script for Shimmer Lake made the prestigious Hollywood Blacklist of buzzy screenplays (despite remaining unmade) has been brought in to prepare a draft of what would appear to be a reboot, and not the previously mooted MK3: Devastation.

While the games remain popular, the same can't be said for the film franchise to date. Paul WS Anderson's 1995 original bashed some of the right buttons and did decent business. But any goodwill it generated among the fanbase was undone two years later by Mortal Kombat: Annihilation, which replaced Christopher Lambert with James Remar in the silver Raiden wig, giving the most embarrassed-looking performance in the history of anyone ever.

If this new one happens, we suggest it does a lot more than hitherto to bring some of the mad craziness that characterises the games. We want to see Noob Saibot, for no other reason than we find his name inexplicably amusing, and we expect some babalities and animalities in there. Otherwise, we ask, what's the point? Or perhaps we just ask that anyway.

why is all i ask,,....

Because Time Warner bought Midway Games when Midway filed for Chapter 11 Bankruptcy. And Mortal Kombat was Midway's biggest franchise.
