Remember this awesome Mortal Kombat concept trailer (Mortal Kombat Rebirth) that spread across the internet like wildfire last year sparking rumours of a new film in the franchise, well Warner Bros have confirmed that are giving the director a shot at making a 10 part web series.
The original trailer came out for nowhere and starred names such as Michael Jai White as Major Jackson ‘Jax’ Briggs and Jeri Ryan as Sonya Blade and featured creative and alot more believable versions of the much loved Mortal Kombat characters Scorpion, Reptile, Jonny Cage and Baraka, although Jonny Cage is seen getting his head lopped off by one of Baraka’s blades.
The concept trailer was directed by Kevin Tancharoen and although there will unfortunately be no new film, Warner Brothers have confirmed that they are giving the director the chance to make a 10 episode series for the web that will focus on Jax who will amazingly be played by the same actor from the original clip Michael Jai White (Black Dynamite, Spawn, Blood and Bone). Other characters expected to feature in the series include Shang Tsung, Liu Kang, Sub Zero, Durak, Kabal, Kitana/Mileena and of course Scorpion. If Tancharoen keeps with the style and feel of his original film-short this is going to be AWESOME, we’ll keep you updated on news and release dates as we hear more.
