Post Next Mortal Kombat movie planned for 2013

Warner Bros. has hired Mortal Kombat: Legacy creator Kevin Tancharoen to direct a new big-screen version of Mortal Kombat.

Last June, the short film Mortal Kombat: Rebirth exploded across the web, which amassed more than 10 million hits. Kevin Tancharoen directed the short, from a script by Oren Uziel, which was designed as a proof-of-concept video to pitch Kevin Tancharoen's vision for a new Mortal Kombat movie. Instead, the short spawned Mortal Kombat: Legacy, a nine-episode web series which attracted more than 15 million viewers. Based on that success, Warner Bros. is now finally moving ahead with a big-screen version of Mortal Kombat.

Oren Uziel will write the screenplay, although no actors have officially signed on as of yet. The Mortal Kombat: Rebirth short and Mortal Kombat: Legacy featured actors such as Michael Jai White, Jeri Ryan, Ian Anthony Dale, and Darren Shahlavi. It is said that Mortal Kombat will not be an extension of the web series.

I guess that's good news. I wish they will add some blood and shock this time. They easily can make it better than MK2 movie imo. But i wish they won't make it just a reboot or even simple sequel. I wish to see a completly new and independant plot, since movies shouldn't be pertaining to the game stories.

I agree with you but wonder why at same time. You know, the MK9 game is really popular so i suppose the movie will be. They could release it in the next month and the box office would explode becuz of the game imo. Since it seems there will be no game in 2012 i would dare thinking of both a movie and next game in 2013. Could make a really big year for the MK franchise since the MK9 is a really big game already.

My prediction? A reboot movie or totally new one and a next game about the Netherealm war with cool alternated plot twists, or a next game based on many characters that were not used in MK9 or since MK4 to MKA.

It seems they killed off half the MK9 roster or something like that so i'm thinking about seeing them in the movie but having a game like Boon said he would love to do once after MK9, featuring a thiny pinch of classic characters along with the newest ones. Risky but could work if the movie stands up to the task. What you think?

2013 kind of late. But i will still be interested in watching it. No matter the story or plot twist, i would think:

Shang Tsung, Shao Kahn, Quan Chi or Shinnok have the best chances of coming in as boss. Unless they create a totally new one but for the movie first it would surprise me.

Actors: If not the ones in Legagy i wonder who but M.J White will most likely accept i think. Scott Adkins would make a great Scorpion or Johnny Cage with all his accrobatic moves and martial arts.

Liu? Well i would guess Robin Shu once again. And some actors from MK1 and 2 movies complained about the fact that the movie sucked and ruined their chances at having a carreer. Sonya in MK1 for instance i guess. But what good movie has she made after MK? I would rather see professional martial artists for most characters but finding such fighters that are also able to act? Let's see.

I would love to see Tanya! And she should be a slave of a Shinnok or a more powerful being than she is.
