In 2010, Mortal Kombat rose from the ashes of the forgotten and its new format made it a hit on Youtube Mortal Kombat: Rebirth, a series of short live-action episodes, with its astounding graphics, choreographer, and story line people all over the web watched weekly and were left wondering “What’s next?”At the time of release, people speculated that these short episodes were meant as a way for Director/Choreographer Kevin Tanchareon to test the waters on making another full-length Mortal Kombat film. In reality, Tanchareon and his studios purpose for the short web-series was meant as an audition for the company to consider him to make a film.
Well, it looks like the audition payed off. New Line Cinema has officially started plans on making another Mortal Kombat film, which will be written by MK: Rebirth writer Oren Uziel and directed by Tanchareon. Slashfilm reports that:
“Deadline and THR both report on the film but there aren’t many details. No actor deals are in place, and there isn’t even a script. THR says ‘ new story will not serve as an extension of the game of digital series.’ That’s a bit mangled, but if you replace ‘of’ with ‘or,’ it makes more sense. In other words, this MMK will be an all-new thing rather than something that spins off a story from the recent games or the web series.”
So for all of those who whose palates are unquenched by the amazing shorts brought out by Tanchareon your wishes have come true! He will now be working on the next new installement to the Mortal Kombat franchise.
