Director Kevin Tancharoen took to his official Twitter page to post the first ever images from his forthcoming Mortal Kombat web series, which is now in production in Vancouver for release later this year.
Based on the iconic gaming franchise, Jeri Ryan, (“Star Trek: Voyager”) will reprise her role as the headstrong “Lieutenant Sonya Blade” from the unofficial fan short. She is joined by Michael Jai White (Spawn, Kill Bill, The Dark Knight) as “Major Jackson `Jax’ Briggs” and Darren Shahlavi (300) as the sly and cunning “Kano.”
Kevin Tancharoen who directed and produced the popular, unofficial “Mortal Kombat: Rebirth” fan short (shown below) that garnered over 10 million views worldwide, is bringing the same immersive directing style to this live-action digital new media series. Fans will be able to delve deep into the history of the warriors they know and love including “Sub-Zero” and “Scorpion.”
Inside you’ll find behind-the-scenes imagery from the Warner Premiere project that’ll hopefully propel a remake into happening.
