Tag: Mortal Kombat Legacy
A live action take on the Mortal Kombat franchise saw something of a resurgence with the webseries Mortal Kombat Legacy. It's success spurned Warner Bros. to get to working on a new full length movie and even spawned a second "season". The second season wasn't very well received and since then, director Kevin Tancharoen has dropped out of the film version of MK. Due to a lack of any information over the last several months, many assumed this meant the MK Legacy webseries would simply disappear. Apparently not.
After three years of working deeply within the Mortal Kombat mythology, creating two seasons of a webseries and prepping work on a film reboot, Kevin Tancharoen has decided to step down from the director's chair, leaving the film still in production but without a director.
Unlike they did with the first season of Kevin Tancharoen's Mortal Kombat Legacy webseries, Warner Bros. has decided to released the entire second season (exlcusively on Machinima) all at once! Yep, that means, Warner Bros. officially sanctioned 10 episode series is up for your eyeballs right now!
Kevin Tancharoen will be bringing Mortal Kombat back to the big screen (at some point) for Warner Bros. but before that, we'll get a second 'season' of his popular web-series, Mortal Kombat: Legacy, which now has an official trailer for you to ooh and ahh over.
Apparently just because Kevin Tancharoen has been hired on by WB to make another live action Mortal Kombat movie, doesn't mean he's stopped work on his wildly popular MK webseries. WB's Digital Distribution arm has confirmed the second 'season' of the webseries is currently in production and will debut in 2013. We'll be able to see our first clip pretty soon too.
While fans have known that the new live-action Mortal Kombat web-series was in production for a while now, we've seen very little from this project. There have been a handful of pictures released by the director, but other than that...it hasn't been much. Well, now under a week away from it's launch fans get their first real look at this series, in a clip of Jax (Michael Jai White) and Kano (Darren Shahlavi) fighting.
