Earlier in the year I reported on Mortal Kombat: Legacy and the Launch of the 9th Mortal Kombat game. I thought that was a pretty big deal back then but now it looks like it was just the beginning for the rebirth of the franchise.
In September of this year it was reported that New Line Cinema hired Kevin Tancharoen (Mortal Kombat: Legacy) to direct a new feature length movie based on the franchise. No actors have been confirmed as of yet. I just hope they decide to keep Jeri Ryan as Sonya.
At Comic Con 2011 Tancharoen, along with writer Oren Uziel, and the creator of the franchise Ed Boon stated that we can “expect a very big origin story with the sensibility and realism of Rebirth and Legacy as opposed to the traditional Mortal Kombat mythology.” from the new film.
Shooting is expected to start in March of 2012 with a release date of 2013.
