Another Mortal Kombat?!?
Are you freakin' kidding me? Moviehole reports that mink (yes, he doesn't capitalize the first letter of his name) is directing a reboot of the Mortal Kombat franchise. This may be the stupidest idea I've ever heard.
Not only has that game not been relevant in 10 years, but the first two movies were SO AWFUL that they don't warrant even talking about, let alone a reboot to remind everyone about them. Here's just a little of what mink (slaps forehead) had to say: "Today's audience is a savvy involved group so the film must be 'A plus plus' in every area in order to capture the magic of the first film."
I might kill myself. "The magic of the first film?" Is THIS the magic he's talking about?
Thankfully the film is still in preproduction, so it has a chance of getting canned before it actually gets made. Dear Lord, I hope this project never sees the light of day. Oh, and by the way - mink also directed the stunningly bad 2005 Steven Segal "action" film Into the Sun.
