‘Mortal Kombat’ Remake Begins With Lowly Supermarket Employee?!

mortal-kombat

Making a few phone calls and doing quite a bit of digging I was able to get some fresh information regarding Warner Bros. Pictures’ forthcoming Mortal Kombat reboot.

With Kevin Tancharoen still attached to direct from Oren Uziel’s screenplay, we’ve exclusively discovered that the live-action reboot will follow a lowly unlucky supermarket employee who discovers that he has out of this world powers and must decide between good and evil, even though the evil side has helped him discover his true potential and who he really is.

The franchise – based on the the video game of the same name created by Ed Boon & John Tobias – follows the best fighters from around the globe who are summoned to an island to compete in a tournament whose outcome will determine the fate of the entire planet.

    Seriously? That’s the best they could come up with?

    i never watched the second one, but graphics and characters have evolved since the video game and the first movie is pretty stupid…so any way you look at it its gonna be better

      How would it be better just because the first movie sucked? Just because it would be different doesn’t mean it’d be better.

    Hmm, sounds cheesy, but could still be interesting. I followed the webseries. It was ok, not amazing.

    well so far with this info it sounds like it will suck, hate the idea, loved the 1st film when it came out and its still ok today

    hated the 2nd film, and to be honest i was not keen on the webseries

    As long as Tancharoen is involved I trust it will do well.

    • Person D. Personson

      Because everything he’s done thus far has been sheer brilliance, right?

      If KT is involved, you can trust it’ll be a generic, one-dimensional genre movie filled with cliches.

    Sounds thin to me. If it is indeed real then yay; they’re officially ripping of Star Wars. Way to go, Mortal Kombat; you’ll never have a decent adaptation on screen.

    I have a feeling this is going to suck did and hope that isn’t what its about. Sounds like a fuckin kevin smith film. How lame is that. Why not just do a straight up R rated mortal kombat film. I liked the short films they did too those were cool pick up from that. Shit I even loved the old one I’m prob the only one.

    As a kid when the 1st two movies came out I loved them. still do, so I’m psyched and just hope that Scorpion is a bad ass in it. even though I think MK would be best portrayed in an anime on like adult swim. and I don’t even watch anime. but I would watch that.

    first film was ace-sets and atmosphere were awesome – oups you can see that in my avatar. Shang Tsung is my favourite villain of all time. I hope they keep in the reboot the mythological aspect. But that’s lame as a storyline to follow a character who discovers his powers :P WTF.

    I must say I hope this is just a rumour and nothing more. Sounds like a very lazy way for writers to avoid writing character development. A man who already has “powers” locked deep inside is an awful idea. even Rocky had to become the champion through years of training! This just makes it sound like it doesn’t matter about any back-story and just gives a huge middle finger to the fans.
    I speculate this be 90 minutes of vague references to the game and campishly copied costumes of the games. Already dreading it *sighs*
