That Mortal Kombat reboot is still happening and thanks to a bit of research done by bloodydisgusting, we sort have an idea of what’s going on in the story.
Warner Bros is producing the film with Kevin Tancharoen attached to direct with a screenplay from Oren Uziel. So what’s in store for the new live action flick? Well, we hear that the story will focus on an unknown character that starts as an everyday supermarket employee who then discovers his new powers through some sort of “evil” act. He then goes on a search to find out who he really is and what his potential really is.
The video game that the film is based on takes place on an island where the best fighters from around the world come together to fight for their lives. The outcome of the tournament “will determine the fate of the entire planet.” We’re not really sure how that fits into the story so far.
This short film created last year shows a look at what might be seen in the film, though on a much grander scale. You should watch it right now.
