Mortal Kombat Reboot Confirmed - Directed By Kevin Tancharoen, the man behind Mortal Kombat Legacy

DSOGaming writes: "Warner Bros has officially announced that Mortal Kombat will get a reboot, with a new adaptation of the classic video-game set to go into development. As was rumored a couple of months ago, the man behind the successful MK web-series, Kevin Tancharoen, will be directing it." (Mortal Kombat, PC, PS3, Xbox 360)

I could have sworn i heard this news after her finished his web series. If I could change anything so far it would be the lady playing Sonya. No offense to that lady, But the role doesn't fit her at all. They need someone a little younger to play her I think.

It was said that he was interested but nothing was official until today. The movie was also hinted on his announcement trailer for Legacy Season 2. As for Sonya, she needs bigger boobs too :P

Sonya..
Yeah, I think that was the only character that I didn't like in the series. There are Tons of better and younger looking blondes to play the role of Sonya!

Why does Mortal Kombat need a reboot? The last game was great. Both fans and critics agreed so why make a cheesy movie and eff up the momentum you've built by making the franchise a joke again.

@StanLee
It's a reboot of the movies not of the games

While I liked the Legacy series, it just didn't feel like it was part on the MK universe. I know they tried taking it Down a more 'realistic' approach but If I hadn't of known who the characters were I'd never of guessed I was watching something based on MK.

The old films get a lot of flack but they had balls to try and get the look and feel of the games (minus the gore). Now I'm guessing they have a bigger budget I hope they try and do the same rather than continue down the realistic approach.

What took WB so long to bring out a new MK movie. MK already have a large fan base. With the last game selling well. It would be stupid not make a new MK movie with all the money it could bring in

Quite frankly, I'd prefer to see a focus on Sub-Zero and Scorpion. But that's just me :D

Im not going to decieve myself into thinking this is going to be a good film in anyway.

Lets just face up to the fact that it is going to be poorly penned, have bad actors who dont fit the roles at all, some underlying love plot is going to be introduced and it is going to be a bad stain on the Franchise name and reputation when they have built a solid one with the remade MK game.

I'm just going to assume that you haven't seen the Mortal Kombat Legacy episodes yet.
Zha1tan  +   1024d ago
yes and lets just assume hollywood is going to give a film good treatment and do loyal fan service instead of going for a mediocre action film with the generic elements of every blockbuster.....yes because their profits dont factor into it at all.
neoMAXMLC  +   1022d ago
I think you're just being far too pessimistic. Considering the director of Legacy is on board, I can't see this film being anywhere near as bad as you're making it out to be. But hey, you're the psychic, not me. :)

Hopefully it's more in line with that 8 minute short rather than the webseries..
BitbyDeath  +   1024d ago
I still prefer the original trailer that came out prior to the web series over the web series itself. It had a really dark appeal to it similar to that of Twisted Metal.

Hopefully Kevin can pull off that vision in the new movie.
