They would try to avoid any over allusions to annihilation some illusions. We're going to be unavoidable. He wanted to bring back johnny cage for the third film if you saw an isolation you know he died at the beginning of that but he did wanna rope in the fan favorite actor linden ashby to return as johnny cage also wanted a return of christopher lambert into the role of raden. And at this time it was pushed that kwan chee would be slotted to be the main nemesis for the third entry in two thousand and one drew me queenie. Bikini was working for the movie related website at that time. Ain't cool news. He and his writing partner. Scott swan were officially commissioned to draft screenplay for the third film the working title mortal kombat three their early draft concentrate on the character of sub zero not the original subzero. The brother of the one that we saw in nineteen ninety. Five film mortal kombat tells zero to look for a champion for earth round to compete in the next mortal kombat tournament held in nether realm eventually determined that sonya blade and jacks will be representatives of earth realm learning from the mistakes of an isolation the mcqueen and swan story. It didn't inject every major game character as an island and tried to do and it would introduce a few new ones. The climax featured sonia going against a resurrected johnny cage. Sonya would free johnny seoul after. She defeated him in the arena. Subzero also has to battle against his dead brother. Here called subzero.

Legal rights to continue the franchise soon plagued the production from further continuing until they were resolved in late. Two thousand three linden. Ashby he had publicly mentioned during this period that he had read the mortal kombat three script any deemed and john cage was going to be back. Christopher lambert also publicly acknowledged that he was going to return however the mcqueen swan script never really got the green light and elements of their story would get revised and find their way into video games. Specially two thousand mortal kombat deadly alliance. Now it's claimed that the original mortal kombat director paul w s anderson. He was being courted to return to the series but he abandoned the project except to stay on a producer. He was also going to abandon resident evil apocalypse because he wanted to helm. Adp alien versus predator in two thousand and four nafta that the rumor mill heated up with reports that lambert had secured the interest of director russell. Mckay he who he had worked with for the first two highlander films as well as the nineteen ninety nine horror flick called resurrection. And at this time the working title would officially change to mortal kombat devastation. Further rumors came out. That devastation was set to film in australia as well as parts of china by the end of two thousand. Four them okay. He was going to direct.

Soto chris qasim asset and sandra hess who took over the role of sonya blade in annihilation. They had some alternates in case she didn't want to come back. Mink claimed that his version was not going to be a sequel to any of the prior films. It was going to be more of a rian. Visiting kind of like batman begins but with many of the original actors returning to the roles that people like them in however those plans also were scrapped in the aftermath of hurricane katrina damage in august of two thousand five to the production sites as well as the evaporation of subsequent financing for the film. A few minutes later universal studios considered financing but during the delay. The script continued to undergo major revisions. It would incorporate elements of the upcoming game mortal kombat armageddon. The plot would involve fujin the god of wind who becomes the new protector of earth realm when his older brother raden a to become an elder god. Now these revisions were done by. Larry khazanov sean catherine derek. Along with a staff of other writers would just go back and forth. It would be sent to midway. So that boone could look over the script revisions and then return them with notes of advice and during this period lionsgate was the studio. That was heading the reimagining the also had script approval along with some of the financier. So each party would read the latest revision. They would supply notes. It would head back to the writers to revise and they would go through the process all over again and hopefully ultimately all of the parties would eventually sign on. Once everybody was content. They would go through casting the film again but a process really dragged on for several additional years further throwing the third films viability dow. Was that the manufacturer of the mortal kombat games was filing for bankruptcy in two thousand nine midway's assets including the rights to their video game properties were sold to warner brothers for thirty three million dollars. Now this brought a lawsuit. By larry kaslow because he claimed that the value of the mortal combat property itself mostly came from his promotional efforts over the years through his movies. Although warner acquired those movies when they merged with new line sentiment two thousand eight his cartoons merchandise he should retain the rights. Everything mortal combat. Outside of the games the lawsuit would eventually be settled out of court each side signing a nondisclosure agreement as to what they got into the film. And that's where we leave.

"As george clooney stunt double that he was portraying in batman and robin kasimov did bring back kesse massa for the tv show mortal kombat conquest though so no hard feelings their gdp perry who doubled for linden ashby in nineteen ninety five mortal kombat. He went onto play scorpion as well as cyrus and nukes. I bought side bought by the way. That's a boon and tobias spelled backwards. Dina leeann he. She plays catanha's twin. Sister molina. I don't think she's called that by name in the movie. But she was a gold medal winner at the nineteen eighty eight olympics for taekwondo. She spent many years in. Hollywood as a stunt double so this was kind of a big acting break for her she she also doubled for talisa. Soto in mortal kombat american actress and stuntwoman. gene holden. she plays sheva. Sheva was to play a much more prominent role from the script but it was whittled down a lot over time in favor of showers facing other characters. They wanted to shoehorn into the film now. Holden had been working for months on her martial arts training so she got very frustrated asked why she was just not taken out altogether. She was told that she did. They didn't want to avoid disappointing. The characters fans so therefore she remained even though she was dispatched very easily in this film. In fact that was going to be a big fight sequence between sheva and the mortal version of raden was cut due to money and time limitations on c. g. a. siberian model named irina. Panta comes in an portrays jade. Now as far as the special effects goes alson. Savage did return to supervise visual effects yet again and she also took an executive producer all here. The savage really wanted to push the limits of motion capture technology introduced fight sequences between a live action performer and a cg character but unlike prior attempts when these cg character was usually added on computer later they had a stunt person in a suit that was covered with infrared dots that were instantly computer translated into a three d design. Cg entity that the calibrated to every motion the technology found was so successful they even added a fight sequence involving two cg characters now. It's reported that the director leeann eddie brought in annihilation budget and days ahead of schedule that was told in the media but really kaslow wanted this remaining time to fix narrative gaps and incomplete. Cg to- castoff got new line to push. The august first released eight to november twenty first because he wanted to work with the screenwriters to try to plug the story holes from of the things they were chopping out. They're going to dub an alternate dialogue through the agr. Postproduction work to try to fix some of that to try to cover over the scenes that were no longer there now. In hindsight kaslow does wish that he had been bold enough to ask for additional resources for reshoots to fix all of these issues and to bolster the effects but he was so pressured by new line to get his film out there and also not spend any more money that he knew the answer was going to be. No new line had financially binding obligations to theaters to.

"He was rushed to a hospital because a moth had fluttered into his ear canal was causing him severe pain and needed to be surgically extracted. The production did suffer some cultural shock when they were filming in thailand because the tight government committee on religious affairs they were very sensitive to the portrayal of the buddhist faith for commercial purposes. The you're upset at the film's either of the buddhist principles of peace and tolerance because they were depicting buddhist priests paying respects to an evil warlord in the film so these sought to confiscate property used by the film production at the historical temple ruins of a ut because the authorities claimed that the crew there was desecrating the ruins not only through the portrayal of the religion but also they were setting off smoke bombs and staging fight scenes on ancient holy artifacts and temples that have been used for centuries for religious purposes. The production team though claimed that outsiders were mistakenly taking the four hundred by three hundred foot styrofoam and scaffolding. Set that the built on the site as the real ruins and they were not actually touching those secret ruins now. As far as the casting goes that developed into one of the main problems from fans because annihilation recasts most of the major characters from the first film the only prominent returning actors are robin shoe and to lisa soto now shoo. In addition to his first top billed role in an american film he also happened to be helping with the casting of the film as well as the fight choreography so he was spread very thin. For this film. James remar he became raden. Christopher lambert deemed the script terrible and did not want to return especially after the experience of being in the highlander sequels. That were also quite terrible and he thought that it should have ended in the first film chris. Conrad stepped in for linden. Ashby as very briefly though ashby had a sequel deal but he was also set to star on the tv show called spy game..

"Yeah absolutely I yeah. I think i think nine hundred five king is my favorite. If we're doing any drafting right now. Nineteen ninety-five is winning so far bonking all the points. Oh absolutely But yeah he. He's got that nobleness about him. And i think it played very well in the nineteen ninety five version because you had the characters being very distinct so you could. You could imagine how they would play off each other. So he didn't come off as so fractious. Because you had the balancing flavors of johnny cage's willa sonya blade right Let's move onto. Johnny cage played by linden ashby. And then we have chris conrad and annihilation. Joe maceio In scorpions avenge. And i don't believe he's in the twenty twenty one vision. No tease of the end of the twenty two and then So how did you feel about the nineteen ninety five. John cage thing care for him because i felt like the story revolved rightly sore on lee. Hang and wanted it to be that so any other character. They always just a bonus ball. If i had to pick a favorite it would be and skopje's revenge. I think that was the best portrayal of johnny cage today. Yeah absolutely and we love. Joe mchale with his. Hi buck crap. Yeah i find in almost all of these films that we've watched. There's always a transfer of one particular character baying the comic relief and unfortunately when you're going with bailey dimension comic relief means one liners and johnny cage. Was that in one thousand nine hundred five like i could have done without him I didn't even find it. Satisfying funny when. He fell with his For design of luggage off the boat when they first get to the island i just. I didn't careful johnny cage. But then i also knew that was the sort of character that he was as well what i did like about it though was at least he could fight so at least he gets. Some sort of credence is somewhere right. Yeah true speaking about credence is. Let's talk about shang song. Play by who you gonna. We have archive footage and annihilation butler in scope and chin-han in the two thousand twenty one version. How did you feel about shang song in the ninety nine vision i feel accused defeated a bit too easily. Oh absolutely a regardless of lee can being you know one of the best of luck. He brings a lot more to the table. And that's why he's the rajon mansion shao kahn. You know he wouldn't speak some some jingling idiot and that's all i thank you sort of portrayed as in this that we know his powers from the game play at not coming into this movie fresh with know everything about these characters to some extent some are some are going well for my perspective and that's why it's called for your reference mate and and to me as like i expected more from him not to be defeated. I easily but we did get some moments was calling for. Because when i was watching this i was thinking all men. Are we going to get to see. Louis can do some of the stuff that we know he can do. Now we go those moments. I'll wait to easily baugh shagman. He's his just his batas he. He's supposed to be bad ass where told he's bad as point you to one of the final scenes in the nineteen ninety five film way talks about capturing a thousand souls and there were like five the focus on bringing me out be like. Where is everyone else supposed to be. This.

"No. I get that well. Was there anything else to say about this movie. Ching song is not as good as the shing-chung from the original one I thought reading was fine. Sonya's about the same. I so my biggest problem with the original. Mk was the fact that none of the character or the actors were built like any of the characters. Because you know that wasn't a thing back in the nineties where an actor would go so far to do a role that they would like put on a lot of muscle and look part whereas i think these characters look the part except for sonia. She still could have been bigger in my opinion. Well i thought king in the original he had a nice frame. Yeah no he did but he was also a martial artists to begin with right that really helps and like linden. Ashby doesn't care because he did everything else. Right like the charisma. Like he's johnny cage to be. That's what i want out of johnny cage. I want the linden. ashby one. Yeah and guy anyway so it works you know you just. He wasn't fat. He was built. He just wasn't well. I mean yeah. But he's like a heavier set big guy not like this was a little more skinny for my taste. The new one. Yeah and then and the shing song in more combat ninety five is head and shoulders above this one. Dishing song is so forgettable. And i think that's the thing that gets me the most about this movie. I didn't care about lou king. I don't a person. I'd like k- know and there's a twist that they do with him where he's on the good guy side and even halfway through the movie he does a turn and i thought that was great because yes. That's what qena would do you know he gets offered money to switch sides. Yep that's what k- know would do. He would switch sides because that's where the money is and i loved that just like so. I don't know who wrote the keno stuff and then who wrote the rest of this movie. Well that's it for us. I mean you're going to go see well you liked it so and that's fine. I'm not if you liked this movie. Excellent me as old school. Mortal kombat guy as a little letdown down. That being said if you wanna let.

"Why is he taking this old guys word that hey get on this boat at this dock at this time and you're going to master whatever he's like but there's no backs there's no. Nfl how long do you want this movie to be. It's a nineties action flick he says. Hey master whatever your name is therefore you know. He's the guy that trained johnny cage and he says. Hey johnny they're they're they're they're saying you can't fight if you wanna prove it. This is how you do it that that's all you need. You don't need it spoon fed to your mark. This is a film not a movie. All right this equality a staff here. The the everybody in this film is so unlikable. Now i will i will i give to. I'll give john cage. I'll give you johnny. Okay put johnny cajun been okay. We're done with but yes he's great. I love johnny cajun's who played them. Let me let me pull it up. Cage linden ashby. I don't know he's awesome. Okay now you wanna talk about unlikable we'll get into christopher lambert's lord raden. Oh my however before we do that shanks carry he wrote. Yuki tagawa is so legitimately good in this. I can't get on board with that like the as he's got a villain presents surely it's like it's like a van damme movie and everything he says is paced and slow tryst film. He would've been ten times better. Had jean claude van damme actually been in it. And you know we've discussed ad nauseam on this podcast and before that Mortal combat the game. Which is the inspiration for this film. Had aspirations of modeling. The character of johnny cage actor sean. Claude van damme and it just didn't work out so they just decided to stay with the kind of look i get it. But why didn't they wide didn't because he's more expensive than linden. Ashby whit who is who who Who publishes who who put what production company put this movie for universal It was a big. It was a big studio came out. It was number one in theaters to they. Spent a ton of money on arms. He's going to have to edit that out. I'm editing so i have to edit it out these these a ton of money on this film and it's evidenced by the terrible which maybe maybe it was top of the line. Cg at this was a new line cinema film it definitely was because that that music kicks in the classic admit the music is good right. The the museum like it does that with the new line cinema logo and then there's a camera pans around the the mortal combat logo fires shooting up and then it goes and it shows you the symbol and the letters world combat fly by your head and then it's all floats and then you're immediately taken to a fight scene where luke canes brother dies this will be doesn't waste any time but you know it's looking brother you don't know how king chosen after all your here's your john. Wiccan us right now. Anybody who's listened to john wick episode of film sold. We go back and listen to how scott can't figure out who john wick's wife is. That's what you're doing to me right now.
