Johnny Cage began filming "Mortal Kombat: The Death of Johnny Cage" prior to the storyline of Mortal Kombat: Deadly Alliance. In the film, he is repeatedly killed and brought back to life. Upset at the way he was being portrayed, believing his own adventures were far more entertaining, he wanted out of the movie but he couldn't due to his contract.After Raiden summons him to fight Shang Tsung and Quan Chi, Johnny finds a loophole in his contract and leaves MCM studios during the production of "Mortal Kombat: The Death of Johnny Cage." Then, in his non-canonical Mortal Kombat: Deadly Alliance ending, he uses his own money to fund the production of his next movie, "Mortal Kombat: Deadly Alliance", which proceeded to break all records in its first weekend in theaters, and made Johnny extremely wealthy. The movie would tell the true story of how Johnny Cage single-handedly saved the world from the threat of Quan Chi and Shang Tsung's deadly alliance.
In Mokap's non-canonical Mortal Kombat: Deadly Alliance ending, Mokap is the primary martial arts talent for motion capture during the production of Johnny Cage's movie, "Mortal Kombat: Deadly Alliance."
