As reported by Deadline, improvement continues to be within the early phases, however Greg Russo is hooked up to write down the screenplay. Russo is at the moment scripting the Mortal Kombat film reboot for Warner Bros., in addition to the Resident Evil film reboot.
To this point there’s no story particulars, however the movies will presumably take loads of inspiration from the video games, which comply with the exploits of the Third Road Saints gang within the fictional cities of Stilwater and Steelport. The sequence’ debut on Xbox 360 was considerably severe, however the sequels elevated the quantity of comedy and outlandish motion concerned.
