It has been confirmed that Warner Bros. are moving ahead with the reboot of the Mortal Kombat movie franchise. The news comes after the successful online series Mortal Kombat: Legacy and Warner Bros. are keeping with the web series director Kevin Tancharoen for the movie.
Warner Bros. exec, Lance Sloan confirmed, “We’re preparing right now for the [Mortal Kombat] film with Kevin Tancharoen, [who] directed the digital series for us. He’s at the helm of the forty, fifty million dollar film.”
It is currently claimed that the Mortal Kombat reboot is set to centre around a supermarket worker who discovers that he has special powers. However, he must then make the big decision of whether he uses these powers for good or for evil. This causes a conflict of interests for him, as he is good at heart but realises his potential under the tutelage of evil.
The Mortal Kombat reboot has yet to get an official movie title but it could just stick with the simply title of Mortal Kombat. The screenplay is currently being worked on by Oren Uziel and it will then be directed by Kevein Tancharoen. There is no official release date yet but we think it could be hitting the big screen in 2015.
