Warners Preps for new MORTAL KOMBAT

WARNER PREMIERE has announced that they’re in development of a new MORTAL KOMBAT digital series to being shooting in Vancouver this February.

Directed by Kevin Tancharoen (Fame, Mortal Kombat: Rebirth), the new series will be an anthology of live-action shorts with new material about characters from the video games – including Scorpion, Johnny Cage and Liu Kang. Casting has yet to be announced.

Mortal Kombat debuted in 1992, and has spawned four arcade games, ten console-based games, two movies, two TV series and an animated prequel. Tancharoen himself produced a MK fan film that generated over 10 million views online. The new iteration of the video game, which comes out April 19, will return to a mature presentation, with the return of fan favorite Fatality. Driven by a new graphics engine, the new game will also introduce “tag team” and “deep story mode”. The new Mortal Kombat is being developed by NetherRealm Studios for Xbox 360® and PlayStation®3 consoles.

The online series will be available from Warner Bros. Digital Distribution through multiple online retailers.
