MKOnline reported yesterday that New Line will no longer distribute any future Mortal Kombar movies. The source of this news is an e-mail message sent to Robert Shaye, co-chairman and co-CEO of New Line Cinema by Anthony Maurizio. Below is a part of the text of the e-mail:

Date: Wed, 04 Feb 2004 16:19:15 -0500
From: "SHAYE, BOB"
Subject: RE: Mortal Kombat franchise
To: 'Anthony G Maurizio'

We no longer have any subsequent rights.

Good luck.

Robert Shaye

Attn: Robert Shaye
New Line Cinema


Mr. Shaye,

I am writing in request of information of New Line Cinema and it's ownership
of the Mortal Kombat franchise. New Line was responsible for distribution of
Mortal Kombat and its sequel Mortal Kombat 2: Annihilation. It has recently
come to light in many press materials such as Game Informer magazine as well
as various online newsboards that a third script has been penned. The writer
is none other than Mr. Drew McWeeny. He has written a statement stating the
project has been in limbo since 2001, and Threshold Entertainment is
currently sorting out legal issues. I am not asking for confidential
information, but does Mortal Kombat 3 appear on the slate for New Line
Cinema...or is Threshold doing it with another company? Does New Line still
have active rights to the franchise? There are many unanswered questions and
if you can clear them up for me and others, it would be greatly appreciated.
By the way, I noticed your cameo in Freddy vs. Jason. Unfortunately it
wasn't as long as y!
our stint in New Nightmare, but fairly notable never the less. Please write
back when you get the chance.


Sincerely,
Anthony Maurizio
