Ian Fisher writes: Besides the return of Mortal Kombat to the hallowed halls of the fighting game elite, MK is finally making its way back into the realm of entertainment with the recently announced Mortal Kombat: Rebirth web series. Taking the MK series into a slightly gritty and somewhat grounded level of martial arts action may not seem like it would be cool, but the reaction to the eight-minute short/test film was unanimously good amongst most gamers and MK fans. Though I’m all for Mortal Kombat: Rebirth, what if Warner Brothers Pictures also gave us another MK film or web series based solely on the video game franchise? Just imagine a movie that’s essentially a remake of the first MK film that was released in 1995 but with a new cast, modern fight choreography and stunt techniques plus a better understanding of what MK fans want out of a movie.
Like any movie, the big question when thinking of a Mortal Kombat movie would be who the perfect cast would be.
