After last summer’s amazing live-action experiment, Mortal Kombat: Rebirth, the concept trailer has officially landed director Kevin Tancharoen a job with Warner Premiere. While it will not be a feature-length film as planned, Tancharoen will direct a 10-part webseries, confirming the news that broke last week.
Warner said during the press release:
“Available this spring through online digital retailers from Warner Bros. Digital Distribution, the Mortal Kombat digital series is an anthology of multiple live action shorts, each providing never-before-revealed insights into characters featured in the upcoming videogame as well as the game’s universe. Additional details, including casting, will be announced in the coming weeks.” The announcement continued that the series will “take gamers deep into the history of warriors they know and love such as Scorpion, Johnny Cage and Liu Kang.“
The spring debut of the digital series is planned in conjunction with the release of the new Mortal Kombat game, which comes out April 19th. Production will begin in February in Vancouver, Canada. No casting information has been revealed although it is expected that Michael Jai White will reprise his role as Jax.
