Mortal Kombat was one of the very few movie adaptations of a videogame to actually work. No surprise then, that the franchise is making a comeback – the surprise is that it will be a web series starring Michael Jai White [Spawn, Black Dynamite] and Jeri Ryan [Star Trek Voyager, Dark Skies], according to a report by ew.com’s Darren Franich.
An even bigger surprise is that White and Ryan will be reprising the roles they played in the above video – a kind of unofficial test reel written and directed by Kevin Tancharoen, who will be working on the series.
Shooting for Mortal Kombat is underway for a premiere somewhere around the time of the new Mortal Kombat game.
