Mortal Kombat is now a movie, again!

Warner Bros Pop Culture News News Movies

That’s right Warner Bros. have given the thumbs up on a new Mortal Kombat film, this time rebooting the franchise with the option of even more possible films.

This news may come as no surprise to some as the man who will be spear heading the project, Kevin Tancharoen, is also the man who took the internet by storm with his incredibly popular Mortal Kombat Rebirth movie trailer and subsequent 10 part Mortal Kombat web-series.

After inital grumblings from Warner Bros. bigwigs regarding his Mortal Kombat movie trailer (that they did not approve of), they eventually kneeled down to his apparent genius (millions of hits) and just decided to just let him make them money.

As for now we have no real clue what the movie will be about or whether it would even be good. However, Tancharoen is well known for pulling off fatalities (directing Fame and Glee 3D!), so maybe that will be to his advantage.

The film is currently slated for a release of 2013, when Tancharoen will rip out his own heart and call it Mortal Kombat.

    I don’t think this is going to end up working out. The director is someone who has only handled Teen girl movies, and now he’s jumping into this? Then again I didn’t watch the Mortal Kombat Rebirth or all that, still I’m very apprehensive here.

    • Tancharoen’s web series was made under the supervision of Ed Boon himself, I can only assume the movie will be as well! It’ll be much better Im positive!

        It is unknown whether Ed Boon will be involved in the project in any capacity. Hopefully he is. Otherwise we may get more of the same bad movies, they have subjected us to thus far.

        I think if the movie is on par with the web series this will actually be a GOOD MK movie.

        I’ve got my hopes up a little bit, but I’m trying not to get them to terribly high, (just because I’ve learned my lesson with video game movies).
