With confirmation that Men In Black 4 is a go, speculation is already mounting as to whether or not a fourth installment will build on the success of last year’s belated third outing or if the franchise should have just quit while it was ahead. Given the relative unpopularity of Mib 2, similar questions were asked of the third film before it stormed onto the scene breathing new life into what appeared to be a dead series.
Now it seems that even leading man Will Smith has his niggling doubts about carrying on. Rumours circulating Hollywood seem to be indicating that Smith is yet to sign on for a fourth film, perhaps to focus on his own production efforts. Whatever the case may be, it seems Sony are determined to push ahead having hired screenwriter Oren Uziel to pen the script. Hopefully Uziel can fit this project into an »

As gamers we often long for franchises that stop producing games before we were happy to let them go. Whether it be because the story simply came to an end like in the case of Time Splitters, or because the series was no longer considered financially viable, resulting in some truly phenomenal game series having their flame blown out far too soon (such as Heavenly Sword or War of The Monsters). We mourn for these old loves of ours, desperately clinging to the hope that they may one day return despite knowing in our hearts that it will never happen.
If you’ve somehow got this far in life without having a series abandoned or, even worse, ‘revamped’ into something offensively rubbish (*cough* Dead Space 3 *cough*), I envy you. This is an industry where the ground-breaking get thrown on the rubbish heap and the undeserving reap in millions, so it »

On May 7, the first Dlc pack for WB Games and NetherRealm's incredible DC Comics fighter Injustice: Gods Among Us will be ready to scoop up via the Playstation Network and Xbox Live. The Dlc pack features a new playable character in Lobo, the intergalactic bounty Hunter, as well as two new sets of skins: Bad Girls and Teen Titans.
The skin sets are comprised of three skins each. The Bad Girls pack includes Wonder Woman #600 (her costume from the 600th issue of her comic), Selina Kyle (sans cat hood), and classic Harley Quinn. The Teen Titans pack includes comic book versions of Deathstroke, Cyborg, and Raven.
The skins are not part of the already for sale "season pass" (using the term very loosely, as the developers at NetherRealm and WB games apparently have no idea what Season Pass means) and will sell for $2.99 each, or some ridiculous mathematical formula used »
Keen to capitalise on the box-office success of last year's Men in Black 3 - which pulled in a global haul of $624 million to set a franchise high - Sony has officially given the green light to a fourth instalment in the sci-fi comedy series.
Up-and-coming screenwriter Oren Uziel has been hired to pen the script for Men in Black 4, and he will also develop the draft for another of the studio's upcoming sequels - the Channing Tatum / Jonah Hill buddy cop comedy 21 Jump Street 2.
Having written the 2010 short Mortal Kombat: Rebirth and co-created the subsequent web series Mortal Kombat: Legacy, Oren Uziel has since signed on to write the screenplay for Warner Bros.' proposed big screen reboot of the popular beat-em-up video game franchise, while Sony is also producing his Black List script for a sci-fi/horror comedy entitled The Kitchen Sink. He will begin work on »

Injustice: Gods Among Us is now available with new Dlc arriving on May 7. We recently discussed with writer Jimmy Palmiotti the game’s dark storyline and the rising popularity of superheroes in media.
Amanda Dyar: You have worked on several amazing projects which include Jonah Hex, Daredevil, Deadpool, and Ghost Rider to name a few. How did you get started in comics, and what are you most proud of today?
Jimmy Palmiotti: I went to the High School of Art & Design in NYC and then after eight years in advertising decided I wanted to change my path and went back to my first love--comic books. I started doing backgrounds for a buddy, Mark Texeria, while drawing and inking some black and white indie books. Eventually I got some decent jobs at Marvel Comics and a few years later met and teamed up to self-publish with Joe Quesada and created EVeNT Comics. »

Sometimes I love my “job,” especially when I get to tell all you folks reading Nerdly about those hidden gems sitting on the shelves of your local supermarket and DVD stores (although are there any of those left these days?). Kill ‘Em All is one such gem.
Essentially Saw meets Mortal Kombat, Kill ‘Em All sees a group of deadly international assassins captured and locked up inside a high-tech bunker known as the Killing Chamber – and the only way to break out of this concrete hell is to duel each other. If they survive this, they will have to confront Snakehead: the lethal, deranged top dog who will stop at nothing to kill them all.
Kill ‘Em All starts off as it means to go on, »

A listing for a Pacific Rim video game first turned up on the Australian Classification Board. Rated M, it will apparently contain moderate impact fantasy violence and an online element, perhaps hinting at an online beat 'em up of some sort (similar to Injustice: Gods Among Us or Mortal Kombat for example). There's currently no word on a release date, although many expect an official announcement to be made this week. Below, you can see a selection of screengrabs which PacificRim.net claim were taken from an unfinished version of the game. Looks pretty awesome! When legions of monstrous creatures, known as Kaiju, started rising from the sea, a war began that would take millions of lives and consume humanity’s resources for years on end. To combat the giant Kaiju, a special type of weapon was devised: massive robots, called Jaegers, which are controlled simultaneously by two pilots whose »
Two of the sequels currently being juggled over at Columbia Pictures – along with The Amazing Spider-Man 2 and The Girl Who Played With Fire – are Men in Black 4 and 21 Jump Street 2. The former is still in the early stages of development, but the latter was recently given a summer 2014 release date, which means that filming will probably begin in mid-to-late 2013.
Perhaps in the interests of expediency, Columbia has selected the same writer to work on both projects.
The Wrap reports that Oren Uziel will work on a rewrite of the 21 Jump Street sequel script that, as with the first movie, was written by Michael Bacall. Since directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller (also returning after the ...

Men in Black 4 has been confirmed.
The fourth movie in the series will be written by Oren Uziel, reports The Wrap.
Uziel is a relative newcomer who wrote the upcoming Mortal Kombat film adaptation. He is also currently working on a sequel to 21 Jump Street.
Cast details and a release date for Men in Black 4 have yet to be revealed.

Sony Pictures is moving forward with Men in Black 4, hiring screenwriter Oren Uziel (The Kitchen Sink) to write the screenplay. Additionally, the studio has also set the writer to re-write the script for another sequel, 21 Jump Street 2. Oren Uziel will first work on the 21 Jump Street 2 script before moving on to Men in Black 4.
Sony's Men in Black 3 earned a healthy $625 million worldwide, the highest-grossing movie in the sci-fi franchise. Story details are being kept under wraps for Men in Black 4. A director hasn't been attached yet, but it seems likely that Barry Sonnenfeld will return, since he made all three movies in the franchise. Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones starred in the first trilogy as Agent J and Agent K, although their return hasn't been confirmed yet either.
Sony Pictures has started development on the fourth movie in the Men in Black franchise, EW has confirmed. The Wrap first reported the news.
Oren Uziel, who is writing the upcoming Mortal Kombat movie, has scored the screenwriting gig for MIB 4. He is also writing Sony’s sequel to 21 Jump Street, last year’s hit comedy starring Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill. That sequel will open on June 6, 2014. No release date has been set for MIB 4.
Men in Black 3 was a box office success last summer, earning the franchise’s highest worldwide gross. The time-traveling threequel brought back franchise »

What exactly can $625m in worldwide box office receipts buy you? A sequel script from a Black List screenwriter, if a new report from The Wrap is to be believed. The outlet shares that Oren Uziel (whose The Kitchen Sink made the 2010 Black List and is expected to go into production later this year) has been tapped to pen the “quietly” in development sequel to Sony’s 2012 Men in Black 3. Details on the Men in Black 4 are being (predictably) “kept under wraps,” but it’s probably safe to assume it will somehow involve Will Smith and some incarnation of Agent K (either Tommy Lee Jones or Josh Brolin, or maybe even both, imagine that fun) fighting aliens with wit and nifty tools. While you may not know Uziel’s name just yet, the writer is something of a hot commodity around Hollywood, as the scribe has also been tasked with co-writing the new Mortal Kombat movie »

Men in Black 3 didn’t perform as well at the Us box office as the previous two movies, but it earned $445 million internationally. A worldwide take of $624 million is easily good enough to merit exploring sequel possibilities, and Sony has hired a writer to work on the new story. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Oren Uziel will be creating a Men in Black 4 draft for Sony.
This isn’t anything Sony is rushing into, though. Uziel has also been hired by Sony to work on a draft for a 21 Jump Street sequel, which takes priority with the movie already having a release date of June 6, 2014. There’s no word on what Will Smith’s involvement will be, but it will likely depend on the final script.

Sony Pictures has hired Oren Uziel to pen the scripts for both Men In Black 4 and 21 Jump Street 2. Uziel, who is working with the studio to develop his black list script The Kitchen Sink, will write the 21 Jump Street sequel first before moving onto the next Men In Black film. Of course, details on both projects are being kept well under wraps at this point.
Though he currently doesn’t have much of a resume, Uziel has the aforementioned Kitchen Sink in development and he’s also working on a few other high profile projects. He’s been tapped to write the Mortal Kombat reboot, he’ll be adapting the novel Downtown Owl and he’s also writing Julius Onah’s God Particle for Paramount and Bad Robot. Clearly, this guy must be good if Sony is trusting him to pen two big sequels.

Nowadays, movies based around a great book or a video game aren’t anything new to us. However, one thing that hasn’t been explored so much is an adaptation into a TV series. Sure, we’ve had The Walking Dead and Game of Thrones, but surely there must be much more that can be adapted in an incredible TV show. Video games haven’t had so much luck when it comes to adaptations. At best, they’re mediocre, at worst…let’s not talk about this.
However, Kevin Tancharoen got it right with Mortal Kombat Legacy, which proved to be a great mini-series with awesome fights and a pretty cool story that serves as an introduction to the characters. It makes you wonder what other games can achieve the same greatness with a similar treatment.
Here are 10 that I think would be incredible as a series…

One of the most famous video game franchises will be back on screen; not so much as a video game, movie, or television show, but on the web.
“Mortal Kombat,” the game that brought spine-ripping, spleen-bursting and a variety of other gory, over-the-top fight moves is coming back for another season on the internet. It began as a short film directed by Kevin Tancharoen, and later was shopped to Warner Brothers as a film. The studio refused, probably due to the bad reception initial cinematic forays received, and the idea made its way on the internet.
This will be the second season of the show and looks to introduce more popular character with their trademark martial arts moves. For now, fans of the series can view the trailer to sample what will come next.

Before he reboots the Mortal Kombat movie franchise next year for New Line Cinema, director Kevin Tancharoen (Fame, Glee: The 3D Concert Movie) is set to unleash the second season of his hit web series Mortal Kombat: Legacy. Check out the official synopsis for season two, followed by the first trailer below...
"The Mortal Kombat Legacy continues in Season 2 as Liu Kang, Kung Lao, Kenshi, and Ermac join the ranks. The rivalries and histories of these fierce warriors will unfold as Raiden and his recruits clash against the dark forces of Outworld. The epic battle for Earthrealm has finally begun."

Warner Bros. Digital released the first trailer for season two of Kevin Tancharoen's web series Mortal Kombat: Legacy this weekend. Here's the synopsis: "The Mortal Kombat Legacy continues in Season 2 as Liu Kang, Kung Lao, Kenshi, and Ermac join the ranks. The rivalries and histories of these fierce warriors will unfold as Raiden and his recruits clash against the dark forces of Outworld. The epic battle for Earthrealm has finally begun." The production values look good, so I can see why this is a hit with fans of the game. There is no set premiere date yet, but the painful wordplay at the end of the clip promises the ten episodes of season two are "Koming Soon." Watch the trailer after the jump. »

Kevin Tancharoen will be bringing Mortal Kombat back to the big screen (at some point) for Warner Bros. but before that, we'll get a second 'season' of his popular web-series, Mortal Kombat: Legacy, which now has an official trailer for you to ooh and ahh over.
I enjoyed the first season of the Mortal Kombat: Legacy web-series. I thought it was a fairly well done series that showed a lot of potential, and this second season will determine whether or not they can fulfill that potential. If I were to base this judgment solely on the new trailer, I'd say they were at least heading in the right direction. It looks to keep in line with what they established in the first series, with some minor changes in the casting. Most notably they got Cary-Hiroyuki Tagawa to be Shang Tsung! If you don't remember, he's the guy who played thr »

Fans of the Mortal Kombat series should like what they see in the first trailer for Mortal Kombat Legacy Season 2. The second season of the popular webseries features a number of characters not seen in the first season, and the upcoming webisodes appear to be sticking much closer to the game this time around.
“The countdown to the second season of “Mortal Kombat: Legacy” has officially begun. Fans can get their first look at the upcoming season, now available on Machinima. From Warner Bros. Digital Distribution, “Mortal Kombat: Legacy 2” is the follow-up to “Mortal Kombat: Legacy” — one of the most-viewed web series of all time with more than 60 million views to date on Machinima. The footage showcases the non-stop action of the continuing saga as Liu Kang and Ermac join the ranks of fighters introduced in the hugely successful first season. The trailer features first glimpses into the rivalries and »
