The internet was all ablaze last year when this dropped and it is good to see the new web series and eventual movie coming soon. More info below and I also posted the short for those of you who have not seen it:
Last year there was a minor flurry of interest in a new Mortal Kombat film when a spec / proof of concept short appeared online. It was a dark, violent little piece of work that featured some surprising faces like Jeri Ryan and Michael Jai White.
Now, while a new feature evidently won’t be happening soon, Kevin Tancharoen, the director of the short, is using it as a launchpad for a new Mortal Kombat web series that will also star Michael Jai White in a story where the classic Kombat characters square off against the series’ big bads, Shao Kahn and Shang Tsung.
Bloody Disgusting says the director will oversee a ten-part web series written by Tancharoen, Todd Helbing and Aaron Helbing. Michael Jai White will again play Jax, and the footage should come together in Vancouver next month. The site expects to see casting for ” Shang Tsung, Liu Kang, Sub Zero, Durak, Kabal, Kitana/Mileena and of course Scorpion,” but that character list looks like speculation rather than reportage.
