It looks like the recent Mortal Kombat: Legacy live action web episodes were enough to convince Warner that a new movie would be worthwhile as WB subsidiary New Line Cinema have today announced that they are targeting a 2013 release for a feature length film to be written by Oren Uziel and directed by Kevin Tancharoen -- the pair behind MK: Legacy episodes and the unlicensed short that started it all Mortal Kombat: Rebirth.

Film blog deadline reports that the new movie will be a reboot and unrelated to the 1900s films, but it's not clear whether they intend to use any of the actors from the recent web series or not.

With the recent successful revival of Mortal Kombat video game (even if it was refused classification in Australia), it seems like a no-brainer to have another run at the big screen. Let's hope it's at least as good as the 90s films.

Update: LATimes has some more in-depth info, reporting that as the movie is being co-produced by New Line and WBIE, it is likely to be coordinated with the launch of the next (unannounced) Mortal Kombat videogame. However, they also mention that production is currently stalled pending a resolution of litigation with a producer of the first two films involving royalties.

Certainly has potential to take the crown as the best video game to movie adaption and hopefully set a new standard, not that the bar has ever been set overly high. The original MK movie still on top for me, I went and saw it a tonne of times when it was on at the cinemas. Goro still looks awesome but the CG (especially reptile) looks very dated now.

Awesome

If it has Michael Jai White in it it should be half decent.

The best MK related movie or series was the very first teaser episode they did for the web series. Where it's all set in the real world and Baraka was a surgeon who went a crazy, became a serial killer and started slicing people up. That's what they should do. Pick 1 or 2 characters to be bad guys and rework their history like they did there.

Awesome! I hope they keep it to straightforward MK style action and don't include a bunch of trashy hollywood type s*** in it.

Awesome to hear. The Rebirth short film was awesome. The webisodes were cool, though some of them were a bit cheesy. It'll be cool to see what they do with a decent budget.
