Scorpion Says Mortal Kombat 3 Filming in September

14 Comments

According to the guy who played Scorpion in the last two “Mortal Kombat” movies, filming on “Mortal Kombat 3″ is gearing up for September 2009. Then again, this is coming from the mouth of Chris Casamassa to a local paper, so who knows if there is any validity to it. Maybe he actually meant he would be playing the MK3 game in September? Well probably not, but you know, I’ll believe it when the trades announce it.

Until then, this is from SGVTribune.com (via):

According to Casamassa, he’s set to start filming the third Mortal Kombat film in September.

Well, that’s it. Casamassa says it, so it must be true. Sort of.

As previously reported, Warner Bros. has just recently bought up all of Midway Games’ titles (MK being one of them), so it’s almost a sure bet that a MK3 will happen, it’s just a matter of when. Either a direct sequel to the two previous movies, or a reboot. Either way, it’s high time we got some more fatalities on the big screen, don’t you think?

    I don’t know if this is true but is going to be a reboot of the Mortal Kombat saga so there are a mix of original actors and new actors happening so I think there will be some new actors for Liu Kang,Kung Lao,Johnny Cage and other MK characters.
    My choice is for Jon Foo (who will be starring in upcoming Tekken movie) as Kung Lao Shin Koyamada as Liu Kang,Natalie Martinez of Death Race fame as Kitana,Laura Vandervoort as Sonya Blade Chris Evans or Cam Gigidet as Johnny Cage.
    So actors in the mix maybe a new actor for Shang Tsung like Kwok Kwan Chan to play him and the music it needs a tounching of asian sound and orctrestra for the film.
    Thank You.

    Well I’m tellin u now that they r going to ruin mk3 just like how they’re gna ruin tekken. Y I say this is because cgi effects r too common in movies n it’s not realistic enough. The 1st n 2nd mk movies were the best due to the simple effects they put. I also think they will use wire wrks. The only way thisovie will be a success is if for starters the Americans don’t make it as the Japanese or Koreans hav better imagination n if they cast the right people. Think about it ong bak is like the best movie bcoz all the stunts r real n right now that’s what warner bros n all other movie industry lack. If u want to cast a really good group of people then consider casting rain bi or rick yunes younger brother or tony ja. There are alot of stars with good talent and it could be found if American movie industries know how to find them
