Every fatality-loving gamer must have a soft spot for the first Mortal Kombat movie. It was the 90s, and before you could shoot hookers in the face in Grand Theft Auto, we made do with performing a 'spine rip' on a defenceless Kombatant. They were innocent times.
However, director has updated the world on his progress in getting Mortal Kombat from Outworld to Earth Realm:
We're still pushing through on that. The script is in a good place, we're just kind of figuring out the budget and locations and that whole process is where we're at.
Tancharoen has been key in revitalising the live action portion of the Mortal Kombat franchise. His online series, Mortal Kombat: Legacy is about to begin its second season, but Tancharoen has said that the new Mortal Kombat feature would take a different approach from the Legacy show:
I think everyone's intention is to start fresh because we want 'Legacy' to live on its own possibly for multiple seasons, and when it comes to 'Mortal Kombat', it's been around for 20+ years.
We're going to take the mythology and add another layer on it so it can live on for another 20 years, or more! I think this is a unique opportunity to set that ground work."
Mortal Kombat: Legacy premiers September 26 on Machinima. The new Mortal Kombat movie is still in development. Say it with me, MK fans: 'FINISH IT!'
