You may remember a year or so ago director Kevin Tancharoen put together a great video showing what a new "Mortal Kombat" movie could look like. The studio liked what they saw, but instead of handing over the film franchise to him, Warners instead gave him an opportunity to develop a "Mortal Kombat" web series (watch here).
The series ended up being a big hit, and Warners has now decided to develop a film reboot. Bloody-Disgusting has learned that Tancharoen is attached to direct from a script by Oren Uziel (writer of the web series). No word if any of the actors from the web series (Michael Jai White, Jeri Ryan) will return.
The new film will follow a lowly unlucky supermarket employee who discovers that he has out of this world powers and must decide between good and evil, even though the evil side has helped him discover his true potential and who he really is.
