A couple of months ago, some of you might have caught the fan made video for a reboot of Mortal Kombat called Mortal Kombat: Rebirth. Well, the video was a hit, it gained a lot of attention, and a 9-episode web series (Mortal Kombat: Legacy) was spawned. Now, the director of the first video and the web series, Kevin Tancharoen, has been given the green light by Warner Brothers to turn his version of Mortal Kombat into an official feature length film.
Kevin Tancharoen will be directing an all-new Mortal Kombat movie, with the script being written by his partner, Oren Uziel (the guy who wrote the script for the original video that started it all). At the moment, details are still scarce, with the only thing we know is that the budget for the movie will be under $100 million. No word on whether the original cast will reprise their roles in this movie, or when the movie will be released, but we’ll keep an eye out for it. Mortal Kombat fans all over the world should be pretty happy right now.
