Furious 7 Director To Produce Next Mortal Kombat Movie
by Gambid on Aug 11, 2015 :: 3 Comments

The New Mortal Kombat Movie has been in development hell ever since the release of its predecessor Mortal Kombat: Annihilation. Every once in a while an "official" news appears online and manages to excite the fans and then to disappoint them as nothing happens down the road.

Things seemed pretty certain with Mortal Kombat: Legacy director Kevin Tancharoen set to make the movie. In 2013 it was however announced that he is leaving the project and there has been no further information ever since. A new Web Series was filmed several months ago, but even here, no further information is available

James Wan To Produce New Mortal Kombat Movie


This all changed when The Tracking Board announced that Furious 7 director James Wan is set to produce the expected New Mortal Kombat Movie Reboot Reboot with previously announced writers Oren Uziel (Mortal Kombat: Legacy) and Dave Callaham (The Expendables):

The in-demand director of The Conjuring and Insidious: Chapter 2 has been brought over to uppercut some new life into the previously stunted picture. With his dark sensibility, ability to orchestrate action and scares, and a wildly successful financial track record, Wan seems to be the perfect fit for what the studio has described as “a departure from the mythology,” with “darker, brutally real martial arts.”

The script, being penned by Mortal Kombat: Legacy writer Oren Uziel and The Expendables writer Dave Callaham, centers around a seemingly harmless guy who realizes his potential when he finds himself caught in the middle of a cross-dimensional battle between the warriors of Earth and the monsters of Outworld. Now, in order to stop the world from total destruction, he must win the martial arts tournament known as ‘Mortal Kombat’.

MK Recap 3: The Future of MK: Legacy and The New Movie
by Gambid on May 30, 2014 :: 0 Comments

As we reported a few months back, Mortal Kombat: Legacy director Kevin Tancharoen informed the fans at the end of last year that he is leaving Mortal Kombat after three years spent with the franchise. Ever since that day, there has been a complete eclipse regarding the fate of the third season of Mortal Kombat: Legacy and that of the new movie. All that changed, when NerdReactor interviewed Kevin about his latest project:

With Legacy, you have approached each season differently, with the first one being an anthology of sorts.

With Legacy Season 1, it was kind of a big experiment. No one has done it before, and we didn’t know if should be an anthology or connected. We did the first one as an anthology and the second one more serialized. In the future, it will definitely be more connected and more cohesive.

We are starting to talk about it [Legacy Season 3] literally this week (knock on wood). I’m starting to talk to Warner Bros. and the video game creators, so hopefully we can see it through.

We better see it, especially after that cliffhanger in Legacy Season 2.

I know, we pissed off way too many people. Ed Boon and I are going to get together and chat and talk to Warner Bros. about figuring it out.



Is this the reason why we’re not going to see a Mortal Kombat movie from you?

We all feel right now that we have such a trajectory to the series. There are so many more stories to tell in that format.


So, there we have it. It seems that there is still hope for Season 3 of Mortal Kombat: Legacy, while the new movie seems to be on hold, at least according to its former director.

Legacy Season 2 Arrives Tomorrow: New Trailer & Movie Plans
by Gambid on Sep 25, 2013 :: 1 Comments

The long wait is finally over, Mortal Kombat: Legacy Season 2 arrives tomorrow, September 26th, on Machinima. And this time we won't have to wait an entire week for the next episode, as all episodes will be released together. Take a look at this brand new trailer:





Also, take a look at this interview with Mortal Kombat: Legacy director Kevin Tancharoen, in which he does not only discuss the series, but the upcoming movie as well:

HC: Does the the upcoming movie function as “Mortal Kombat Legacy 3″? Or will it start from scratch?

KT: We made a conscious decision that the movie is going to be its own universe, the reason being that we want “Legacy” to live on its own and I don’t want them to have to rely on each other because I think the world of “Legacy” still has a lot of stories to tell. They’re just two different mediums and two different styles of storytelling. I picture that there’s also a version of “Mortal Kombat” that’s a TV version or a Netflix version that lives on and is epic in its scope like “Game of Thrones.” Obviously, they’re not shy about killing their main characters, and I would have to do the same thing. “Mortal Kombat” has been around for over 20 years. The movie has to stand on its own. We want to take the mythology that everyone knows but also add to it. We’re still taking the canon, but we’re adding additional characters to still push it forward for another, who knows, 20 or 30 years. “Mortal Kombat” could be one of those games that could be around forever, and that’s how we’re treating the feature film.
