Two sides are looking to test their might as they battle in mortal combat over, well, 'Mortal Kombat.'

The 'Mortal Kombat' movie series, based on the wildly popular video game franchise, has been dormant for over 10 years (The second movie, 'Mortal Kombat: Annihilation,' was released in 1997 to pitiful reviews and just $36 million at the box office, domestically.)

Apparently, Warner Bros. has been trying to get a reboot off the ground since last summer after it acquired the bankrupt Midway Games. Two sides are looking to test their might as they battle in mortal combat over, well, 'Mortal Kombat.'

The 'Mortal Kombat' movie series, based on the wildly popular video game franchise, has been dormant for over 10 years. (The second movie, 'Mortal Kombat: Annihilation,' was released in 1997 to pitiful reviews and just $36 million at the box office, domestically.)

Apparently, Warner Bros. has been trying to get a reboot off the ground since last summer after it acquired the bankrupt Midway Games.

But now, according to the the Hollywood Reporter, Larry Kasanoff's Threshold Entertainment has filed a new breach of contract lawsuit, claiming they have a deal to develop the third 'Kombat' movie and that Warner Bros. has avoided communicating with them.

Threshold had previously sued Midway in an effort to keep its control over the movie franchise, claiming that Midway's work was restricted to making the 'Mortal Kombat' video games and that Threshold was contractually responsible for the characters and mythology of the first two films, in addition to developing a third film. That lawsuit was resolved when Warner Bros. acquired Midway, so now Threshold has filed a new lawsuit against Warner Bros.

We just want to see Scorpion and Subzero fighting on the big screen again. Hopefully, this will all lead to a Flawless Victory.
