A reboot version of ‘Mortal Kombat’ is likely to head for the big-screen in 2013. New Line Cinema teams up with Burbank studio’s video game unit Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment to bring back the martial art franchise in a live-action reboot. For this purpose, the studio has tapped Oren Uziel and Kevin Tancharoen to serve as the scribe and the director respectively.

Earlier, Tancharoen and Uziel had made 8 minute short film named ‘Mortal Kombat: Rebirth’ starring Michael Jai White as Jax, Matt Mullins as Johnny Cage, Jeri Ryan as Sonya Blade, Ian Anthony Dale as Scorpion and Lateef Crowder as Baraka. However the film was made to impress Warner Bros., but the studio reportedly was not amused by the result and has decided to shut down the project.

Tancharoen has signed a deal with Warner Bros’ digital division, Warner Premiere to direct a 9-part series of promotional Web episodes known as ‘Mortal Kombat: Legacy’. Last April, the series started airing on YouTube and became a viral hit. However, the successful online series has convinced WB and New Line to allow Tancharoen to direct the reboot.

Original ‘Mortal Kombat’ movie was released in 1995 and has raked in $122 million worldwide and its sequel ‘Mortal Kombat: Annihilation’ was dropped in 1997 and has grossed $51.3 million worldwide. The New Line still keeps the storyline secret but plans to begin the production next year.
