Kevin Tancharoen has a pretty awesome story to tell when it comes to Mortal Kombat. He’s already well known for his work on the nine part web series Mortal Kombat: Legacy and was tapped by Warner Bros. to reboot the failing video game series. There have been a few set backs but now we get a little update to wet our whistle. Read on for the goods.
Hot on the heels of the premiere of the second season of the web series, on September 26, Tancharoen talked Mortal Kombat with SuperHeroHype, revealing a couple tidbits about the progress of the reboot. “We’re still pushing through on that,” he told the site. “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.”
He was asked whether the film would continue the story from the web series or be its own standalone tale, to which Tancharoen had this to say:
“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.”
It’s very cool to see a fan become a key factor in a franchise they love and we hope all the best for this reboot.
