Mortal Kombat

Speaking with Heroic Hollywood, James Wan stated if he “can’t get the right resources” for his live-action Mortal Kombat movie, he “[doesn’t] want to do it.”

That has been such a tricky one just trying to get the script to a point. People don’t know this, fans don’t understand this, but there’s just so much on the business side of things… to try and get the right budget for it, and we want to make sure we have enough resources and the budget to do the film right. If I can’t get the right resources and find the right filmmaker for it, I don’t want to do it. I’m so busy already. I don’t need to clutter my plate with more stuff if I don’t believe it can be done right.

Child’s Play

Appearing as a guest on the Post Mortem podcast, series creator Don Mancini revealed he rejected a producer’s credit on the upcoming Child’s Play remake.

MGM retained the rights to the first movie, so they’re rebooting that. They asked producer David Kirschner and I if we wanted to be executive producers. We said no thank you, because we have our ongoing thriving business with Chucky. Obviously my feelings were hurt. Ya know, I had just done two movies… forgive me if I sound defensive, they were both at 83 percent on Rotten Tomatoes. Even though they didn’t get theatrical releases, they were well regarded. And I did create the character and nurture the franchise for three fucking decades.
