Roger Christian of Battlefield Earth fame directing Mortal Kombat 3?

Roger Christian, back in the year of our Lord 2000 unleased unto the world a force. A force that made 20 somethings cry and also made terminal cancer seem not that bad. That force was called Battlefield Earth – a movie that people are still talking about for all the reasons that a film director wouldn’t want people talking about their movie 4 years later.

Now, I will give Roger some credit… Battlefield Earth was so monumentally bad, it couldn’t have all been his fault. I’m sure he’s capable of directing something I’d like, but I haven’t seen it yet. He was the Art director for “Monty Python’s Life of Brian” back in ’79 – that counts. However, Battlefield Earth is his only helmed commercial mainstream movie.

Now, this actually slips into the rumour drawer so take your grain of salt…
Harry over at in a recent article, made a brief side note that Battlefield Earth director Roger Christian is going to be directing Mortal Kombat 3. Personally, I can’t see how this would be possible and why someone would bother giving him another “large” movie project without seeing a “redemption” project first is beyond my capacity for rational thought. And the movie they are handing him is bound to suck in the first place. Actually… maybe that’s why. In which case, that’s just mean.
– At the time of writing, I’ve no evidence to support this, but I’ve also no evidence discrediting it either.

  1. yo!, i think Mortal Kombat 3 should be made now, in the yr of 2005.since i was 7 yrs old i saw the first movie and i loved it and #2 was great in my opinion but i think that #2 ended to fast? it was great because it had a lot of action but it ended to fast. so i think part 3 should have a continuation series to it like the rocky movies with sylvester stallone. mk3 should be like the games, and increase from there. make it a long series to part 5(like rocky 5).

    Peace, #1 mortal kombat,”Flawless Victory”!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  7. Roger Christian for Mortal Kombat 3?
    I can see why they picked him. Battlefield earth
    and Mortal Kombat 2 were similar in style.
    Gosh… i can’t decide who would be suited better
    for this movie.

  8. They should have John Travolta come back in his Rob Zombie outfit to be one of the combatants. That would just rule. He could defeat Kano, and then his finishing move could be calling him “Rat Brain”. Cool.
