New Mortal Kombat Film Coming

Last year a new short, fan made Mortal Kombat film took the internet by storm. The short film was made by director Kevin Tancharoen and was titled Mortal Kombat: Rebirth. Nobody knew what to make of it, the production values were so good there was talk that this was a film that had been secretly in production.

It turns out that Tancharoen made this short in hopes of getting a chance to make a real Mortal Kombat film for the big screen. It looks like it worked as Warner Bros. has hired Tancharoen to direct 10 upcoming short films for the franchise.

Bloody Disgusting reports that Tancharoen will work with Aaron and Todd Helbing to write the 10 Mortal Kombat webisodes.

Twitch is reporting that we can expect to see the first episode in April around the same time the newest Mortal Kombat videogame will come out.

The Mortal Kombat characters making a return in this series:

  • Reptile
  • Scorpion
  • Jax
  • Sonya Blade
  • Shang Tsung
  • Liu Kang
  • Kabal
  • Katanna
  • Raiden
  • Kung Lao
  • Mileena
  • Cyrax
  • Sektor

Michael Jai White starred as Jax in the original video and will return. As will Jerri Ryan as Sonya Blade and Ian Anthony Dale as Scorpion.

There is even better news: the 10 webisodes will serve as a prelude into a brand new feature film! The release date for the feature film is said to be in 2012.

If you haven’t seen the original short film that started all this, check it out below!

Mortal Kombat fans have been waiting a long time for a new and much better film version of their beloved game to be released on the big screen. If this short film is any indication they won’t be disappointed.
