Warner Bros confirms Mortal Kombat reboot

In one of the more unlikely reboots of recent years, Warner Bros has confirmed that Mortal Kombat will be getting a makeover, with a new adaptation of the classic videogame set to go into development.

Warner executive Lance Sloan confirmed that a new Mortal Kombat film is in the pipeline, while also revealing the kind of budget the project’s director will be working with.

“We're preparing right now for the film with Kevin Tancharoen, [ who ] directed the digital series for us," said Sloan. "He's at the helm of the forty, fifty million dollar film."

No firm details have been confirmed as yet, but word is the new film will follow a supermarket employee who discovers he has bizarre, otherworldly powers that lead him towards a pivotal choice between good and evil. And who hasn’t been there?

So long as there are some ludicrously gory fatalities on display, we’ll probably find ourselves taking a look. All together now… “FINISH HIM!”
