Mortal Kombat Film Relaunch Considered

Based on the success of Legacy

Warner Bros. and director Kevin Tancharoen have a hit on their hands with Mortal Kombat: Legacy, the web series spawned from Tancharoen’s short film Mortal Kombat: Rebirth.

Tancharoen directed the short in hopes to secure an MK feature gig. Instead, Legacy was created and released to tie in with the promotional campaign surrounding the new video game.

Machinima premiered the first episode of Legacy last week and, to date, 3.6 million people tuned in.

Naturally, Warner Bros. is now considering a feature film, says Variety. Mortal Kombat: Legacy, meanwhile, will wrap up its remaining episodes and hit DVD/Blu-Ray later this year.
