With Mortal Kombat seeing its current level of success, it shouldn't come as too shocking a surprise that New Line is working with Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment to make a full-blown movie. The film, set for release in 2013, will be directed by Kevin Tancharoen, the same guy who did the MK: Legacy videos.
"The new game and the online shorts prompted us to consider a reboot of a brand we hadn't been actively thinking about," explains New Line president Toby Emmerich. Similar to what we saw from the latter, this movie is said to be a take on the franchise more grounded in reality.
After the pilot episode of the web series, I almost immediately lost interest. Really hopeful the same doesn't happen again with this big-screen project.
