"Devastation" Takes a Reboot?



"Mortal Kombat: Devastation" reportedly will be a restart of the "Mortal Kombat" franchise a la "Batman Begins."

Looks like 'back-to-basic' story has become quite a trend to be applied in Hollywood film productions lately. Taking the same recent decision filmmakers of "Escape from New York" made for the project, those of "Mortal Kombat: Devastation" reportedly will also give a reboot treatment to the popular franchise.

"The movie is not going to be a prequel, sequel, or in any form be related to the previous 2 movie," a source revealed to Moviehole.net. "Pretty much like Batman Begins, is going to restart the series with new concepts, stories, etc."

Furthermore, it is also informed that what takes the videogame adaptation so long to come to the surface is actually the script as the writing turns out to involve many parts. These include the team at Threshold, the company holding the rights to the franchise, the game creator Ed Boon, and Midway, developer of the game.

As for casting terms, no names have officially been attached yet in the list, but director mink reportedly confirmed that he has approached "Mortal Kombat" stars Christopher Lambert and Robin Shou for a possibility for them to join the flick.
