Mike Nelson and Bill Corbett recently took to Facebook and Twitter, respectively, to let fans know that they will not be participating in Joel Hodgson’s upcoming MST3K reboot. Basically, it sounds like they’re committed to Rifftrax, a project that is more their own than MST3K ever was, both financially and creatively; something which this exchange seems to further confirm. Which, you know, fair enough. Still, I can’t help but feel disappointed that they’ve already written off the possibility so quickly.
Kevin Murphy has yet to comment on the reboot, but one can assume he’s probably abstaining for similar reasons.
