Mortal Kombat Is Getting The Reboot Treatment!

| Filed under: Film Flickers

Is this game even relevant anymore?

Either way, we're just excited to be able to scream again:

"MOOOOOOORRRRRTAAAAAAAL KOOOOOOOOOMBAAAAAAAAAAT!"

That's right, New Line Cinema has apparently greenlit a live action reboot of the video game turned film Mortal Kombat, to be written by Oren Uziel and directed by Kevin Tancharoen, AKA the pair who reignited interest in the martial arts flick by creating an unauthorized, eight-minute short film called Mortal Kombat: Rebirth, which quickly went viral and spawned a 10-episode web series!

Hey! You can't say they didn't earn the jobs, after all the hard work they clearly put in!

However, we will certainly be interested to see if people are still interested in this franchise.

Who knows? It could be fun!

What do U think?? Will U see the Mortal Kombat reboot?

    Perez, do you even realize the amount of bullying that is in every single post you make? You are probably responsible for half the gay suicides in the U.S.

    "Is this game even relevant anymore?" You're a lot more ignorant than I thought; celebrities aren't the only subject people care about. There's tons of anime and video game conventions in the United States- hello, Comic Con?- and you think just because you don't play video games that no one else does? I love your blog, but you really can sound like an asshole sometimes.

    Perez, when it comes to stories about video games, you really have your head in the sand about it. Mortal Kombat is very relevant.

    The new Mortal Kombat game just came out like 2 moths ago and it was big seller… You must not be much of a video game player. Also the just released the arcade versions on 360.

    You're a moron Perez, pull you head out of caca's ass and stop jerking off to beiber videos.

    Just because you don't play it doesn't mean it's not relevant. Stop posting about video games because obviously you know nothing about what is going on with them.

    This game is very much so relevant!!!

    There's a reason why they're rebooting this, the latest releases Mortal Kombat (2011) and Mortal Kombat Arcade Edition have seen great successes, not to mention the web series was also a bigger success than expected.

    You should really watch the short Perez… It is nothing like the games or any other aspect of the franchise.

    If you did your research you would know that in Mortal Kombat(2011) has sold over 3 million copies. With the succes of the new video game, short film and the webseries, of couse Hollywood is going to do a reboot. I wish you stop posting about video games. Stick to celebs and gay rights.
