Warner Bros. has announced that the Mortal Kombat movie series will be receiving a reboot soon, in the form of a new adaptation of the classic, super-violent video game from the old days.
The man who’s been handling the successful and surprisingly web series, Mortal Kombat: Legacy, Kevin Tancharoen, will direct the movie.
“We’re preparing right now for the film with Kevin Tancharoen, [who] directed the digital series for us,” Warner Bros. said. “He’s at the helm of the forty, fifty million dollar film.”
Tanchareon is also working on a second season of the websisodes series Mortal Kombat: Legacy.
The video game series got a much needed reboot a couple years back, and it worked better than many would have expected. Hopefully, the film reboot will be the same. It’s a video game-t0-film adaptation, though, so I wouldn’t keep my hopes up. But let’s see where it goes.
