“The other thing that’s important to probably highlight is that we’re preparing right now for the featured film with the same kid. Kevin Tancharoen directed the digital series for us. Before that he did a renegade video that he put up on YouTube. And we sent the piracy people after him, to take it down and put him in jail. And cut to a couple months later he was directing the digital series for us. And now he is at the helm of a forty, fifty million dollar feature.”

And here’s the possible plot according to the online rumor:
“The live-action reboot 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.”
An earlier interview of Kevin Tancharoen:
If Kevin Tancharoen is helming the film then I’m pretty sure it will be a hit. His “renegade video” was indeed awesome and he’s a real fan of the game.
Anyway, stay tuned with for more information about the reboot of Mortal Kombat!
We aren’t finished yet with lethal fatalities: Director Christopher Morrison, aka Mink, is indeed working in the shadow to bbring us a new Mortal Kombat movie. Following the relative disaster of MK2 it’s not an easy task to garner enough attention and cash to launch Mortal Kombat 3. But it looks like he may have found his way at the end: actor Chris Casamassa, who played in the first Mortal Kombat movie, innocently said principal photography of a new Mortal Kombat movie would start in September 2009.
IMDb is listing the movie nder the title of Mortal Kombat for a release in 2010. But no real clue about what this new Mortal Kombat movie will be about… Is it a Mortal Kombat movie sequel? Or a reboot of Mortal Kombat?
A Mortal Kombat movie going all CGI would be better than a live action film though… Only CGI could really render the gorgeous fatalities from the game on screen!
