Mortal Kombat Movie Update
Filming details on the third Kombat.
by IGN FilmForce
August 4, 2005 - Mortal Kombat III, the next installment in the popular fighting game-to-film franchise, will shoot in LA. No, we don't mean L.A. as in Los Angeles... we mean LA as in the postal abbreviation for the state of Louisiana.

According to the Baton Rouge-based newspaper The Advocate, Threshold Entertainment plans to make the movie there and build a 100,000-150,000 square feet of production facility on the banks of the Mississippi that would double as a tourist attraction.

Threshold CEO Larry Kasanoff said, "I believe there's an extraordinary opportunity to build a state-of-the-art production studio-slash-Hollywood theme park and training facility right in the middle of town. ... There would be actual movies being made there, and an observation platform to watch."

The cost of the studio and amusement park is estimated at around $150 million.

Threshold has announced plans to make Mortal Kombat III in Louisiana, but it's not clear if it'll actually film at the proposed facility. It was originally slated to get under way this summer and should still start shooting much sooner than construction would be completed.

Various cast members from the previous films are negotiating contracts to return.

I was surprised I actually found this news. At least we know they're making it.

I saw MK1 last night on TNT. I still like the movie, but it still makes me mad when they jump from fight to fight. Maybe they could have had the scenes bigger, but then again we are talking a budget.

If I was writing the script I would make the scenes better.
