Remember that Mortal Kombat trailer reboot thing that popped up out of nowhere last summer and impressed the hell out of all of us? No? Well, now you do. And guess what? Its gonna become a web series.
Bloody Disgusting is reporting that Kevin Tancharoen, the guy who directed that awesome trailer thing, will be creating a ten episode series based on the world the trailer showed us. Michael Jai White, the star of the kick ass comedy Black Dynamite, will return to star as Jackson Briggs. Given the gritty and realistic nature of the trailer, I doubt that MJW will appear sporting a pair of bionically enhanced metal arms. Other characters rumored to appear in the series are Shang Tsung, Liu Kang, Sub-Zero, Durak, Kabal, Kitana, Mileena and Scorpion. May I ask what the hell a Durak is? I pretty much lost interest in Mortal Kombat after III.
Shooting will take place this February. Here’s hoping they include harlequin baby Reptile and freaky surgeon Baraka in this thing. Though I do hope Johnny Cage remains alive. Poor bastard just can’t catch a break.
