Friday 13

In conversation with CNNSean S. Cunningham said the likelihood of a new Friday 13 film in the next two years is currently “50-50”.

I think it’s sure to come back. But I can’t tell you he’ll be back this year or next. Will Jason return to theaters? Right now it’s 50-50…Both sides are really dug in foxholes. They won’t throw grenades, but I don’t think anyone will call for peace talks.


Mortal Kombat 2

Talk with comicsscreenwriter Jeremy Slater spoke about the challenge of introducing new characters to an already packed roster in Mortal Kombat 2.

They’re really flexible because a lot of it’s about who do we want to see, and a lot of it’s about who the fans really want because, I’m sure you know, mortal combat has an incredibly passionate and incredibly vocal fanbase on social media. And there are people that they really want to see in these movies and relationships that they really want to see, and part of the problem is that we have a lot of returning characters from that first movie that you already have to balance. So if the last movie introduced 10 characters, we can’t necessarily turn around and introduce 10 more characters because then you’re dealing with 20 people in a movie and it becomes kind of a parade cameo. So you really have to go through some kind of selection, who are your three or four favorite heroes that we can add, who are your three or four favorite villains?

How can we introduce some of these great characters but use them in a way that’s satisfying and doesn’t feel… You don’t want Erron Black just running in the background and everyone going, ‘Yeah, that’s was him. If you’re using this character or if you’re using Johnny Cage or Kitana or D’Vorah, or any of those characters from the games, you want to make sure you have a story to tell. And we’ve got to find a way to do it in under two hours, and we’ve got to find a way to make this all make sense to people who’ve only seen the first movie and don’t know the lore of the games and we We’ve gotten as close to that tradition as possible, because the fans, that’s what they want to see.

So it’s really a balancing act because there are definitely going to be people who are like, ‘My favorite character didn’t get included this time around just because they have 50 characters at this point. And we can’t have them all on screen. But I think of the characters that you see, I think the fans are going to be really happy with the interpretations. We strive to make them as cool, memorable and fun as possible.
