Remember Mortal Kombat: Rebirth? It was a short, 7-minute “gritty realistic” take on Mortal Kombat that made the Internet rounds a couple years ago. The idea was Rebirth was going to sell Warner Bros. on the idea of doing a new Mortal Kombat movie. It didn’t happen, but Warners did approve a web series called Mortal Kombat: Legacy.
So far Mortal Kombat: Legacy’s nine episodes have amassed around 60-million YouTube views. Apparently that was finally enough to convince Warners that new Mortal Kombat movie might be viable.
According to a Warners executive, Rebirth and Legacy director Kevin Tancharoen is now at work on a “a forty, fifty million dollar” Mortal Kombat feature. Hit the jump to celebrate this news the only way it possibly could be celebrated…
