Video Interview: ‘Mortal Kombat: Legacy’ Director Kevin Tancharoen!

Earlier this week we were all treated to the debut webisode of Warner Bros. Pictures’ “Mortal Kombat: Legacy”, which has been receiving rave reviews from critics and fans alike.

Bloody Disgusting’s Chris Eggertsen hopped on camera with director Kevin Tancharoen and co-creator Ed Boon to talk about the franchise revival and how it accidentally came to be! You’ll find both videos inside, along with the premiere episode.

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 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.”
