Mortal Kombat Is Koming Back to the Big Screen

Looks like director Kevin Tancharoen's actually going to get to make that Mortal Kombat movie he pitched to Warner Bros. The director of Mortal Kombat Rebirth and the web series it spawned, Mortal Kombat Legacy, is getting his very own stab at a feature film.

Tancharoen will direct an all-new Mortal Kombat movie based on a script from writing partner Oren Uziel. The Hollywood Reporter writes that the new story "will not serve as an extension of the game [or] digital series." Production is expected to begin next year with a theatrical release planned for 2013, reports the LA Times' Company Town blog, which pegs the budget at under $100 million.

Warner Bros.' New Line Cinema division will produce. The last time theatergoers got to see Mortal Kombat characters beat each other up on screen was in 1997's tragic Mortal Kombat Annihilation.

The latest video game entry, Mortal Kombat for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, has gone on to sell more than 3 million units since its launch in April.

Executivo da Warner Bros. confirma o regresso de «Mortal Kombat» aos cinemas

Lance Sloan, executivo da Warner Bros. confirmou na Marseille Webfest 2012 que o franchise Mortal Kombat vai mesmo regressar aos cinemas e que o orçamento da obra deverá rondar os 40, 50 milhões de dólares.

Kevin Tancharoen (Fama) irá realizar a obra, tendo sido fulcral para a sua escolha a sua curta-metragem «Mortal Kombat: Rebirth», publicada no Youtube há um ano. Depois do sucesso da curta, que se tornou viral, Tancharoen foi escolhido para criar uma série para internet, denominada «Mortal Kombat: Legacy».

Vale a pena ainda lembrar que originalmente Mortal Kombat era apenas um jogo de luta lançado nos arcades em 1992, e que depois teve suas versões caseiras lançadas pela Acclaim Entertainment. Em 1995 o videojogo chegou ao cinema, encontrando-se no elenco nomes como Christopher Lambert e Robin Shou. A realização foi de Paul W. S. Anderson, o principal responsável pela chegada do franchise «Resident Evil» ao cinema.
