HOLLYWOOD – Christopher Lambert returns to the Mortal Kombat franchise.

Christopher Lambert announced he was returning to the character of Lord Raiden for the new Mortal Kombat film. He spoke with SE about the upcoming American martial arts fantasy action film directed by Simon McQuoid.

I fucking love doing these films. I had such a great time on the first. Hopefully this time I’ll get a chance to do a bit more fighting. Fucking amazing stuff.

The film of the video game franchise of the same name created by Ed Boon and John Tobias will serve as a reboot to the Mortal Kombat film series. It also stars Lewis Tan, Jessica McNamee, Josh Lawson, Tadanobu Asano, Mehcad Brooks, Ludi Lin, Chin Han, Joe Taslim, and Hiroyuki Sanada.

Lambert – who insists on being called Connor McCloud – could not contain his excitement.

I could shit through the eye of a needle, I’m so happy. This is my year. I’m on the way back. The only thing I don’t like is the fact that they spell it with a K. That’s just bullshit. It should be Mortal Combat. With a C. What is it? This is some sort of outerspacey thing. They have all the other letters in the alphabet but not a C? Come on, guys. Mortal Combat! There can be only one. Argggh!

What’s the matter Connor?

It’s the Quickening!

Mortal Kombat is scheduled to be released on April 23, 2021, simultaneously in theaters and on the HBO Max streaming service.


PARIS – The new autobiography of Highlander and The Sicilian actor Christoph Lambert There Can Only Be Me reveals that the Scottish actor is in fact not Scottish. The Studio Exec has managed to get an advance copy and provide you with the following extracts.

Growing up:

I was born in Great Neck, New York in the United States of America. My father was a diplomat. And we travelled a lot. I grew up mainly in Switzerland, in Geneva and then I went to work in Paris in France. So when people ask where I am from I always say ‘Lots of different places.’

 First Break:

I read the script and then I prepared for the role and then I made the film. And it was only when I went to the premier that Hugh told me ‘You know it’s Tarzan, don’t you?’ I was shocked, but when I thought about it, there were some similarities.

Highlander II: The Quickening:

We were convinced that the only way we were going to do a sequel was if it was better than the original. We worked on the script and rejected at least five or six different versions. Ans then when it came down to it, my accountant said just do it. So I closed my eyes and picked one. And you know it wasn’t absolutely awful.
