Th 3rd Mortal Kombat movie update

Seems that the fine folks over at MovieWeb conducted an interview with John Medlen, the actor who played Ermac in Mortal Kombat: Annihilation and stunt coordinator for other such movies. In regards to his ties with the increasingly mysterious Mortal Kombat 3 movie, he had this to say:

Question: What are you currently working on? What�s next?

John Medlen: I�m scheduled to do Mortal Kombat 3. That doesn�t have a start date. The producer Larry Kasanoff, he�s pushing for his other animation feature, it�s computer animated called Foodfight!. I think that�s the first thing on the list. And then when the right time happens, Mortal Kombat will kick in.

Question: I know that you were in Mortal Kombat: Annihilation. Will you be acting in Mortal Kombat 3 or just doing stunt coordinating?

John Medlen: That hasn�t been determined yet. When the time comes, depending on how much I have to deal with, as far as coordinating and if I�m going to second unit direct. That�s gonna be a very busy show because I think they�re running simultaneously, first and second units just because of the way they want to schedule it. So it�s gonna be very busy. Of course I�d love to perform, just for having a good time... so I�m hoping it happens but I�m not gonna be disappointed if it doesn�t.

So it would appear that MK3 has taken a slight the backburner approach to some other Threshold projects, but is still seemingly in the plans. We can only hope 'the right time' will kick in soon...
