Mortal Kombat Film Lawsuit

GamePolitics reports that Mortal Kombat film producer Lawrence Kasanoff is suing Midway over the intellectual property rights to the fighting game. According to Kasanoff's legal filing, he was instrumental in development of the franchise over the past 16 years. Here's a bit:

The Mortal Kombat series, as it stands today, is far more a creation of Threshold and Kasanoff than of Midway. Midway's creative input was almost entirely limited to the videogames. On their own, the videogames provided only minimal back-story and mythology, and only flat, "stock" characters... Kasanoff and Threshold were responsible for virtually all of the creative input that went into turning the videogame concept into a multimedia enterprise.
