Warner Bros working on Mortal Kombat movie reboot

In an unexpected move, classic fighting IP Mortal Kombat is to return to the silver screen.

Total Film reports that Warner Bros has already begun work on the project, with rumours suggesting that it will revolve around a supermarket worker who develops special powers and ends up fighting loads of dudes. And most likely scantily clad girls.

We’re preparing right now for the film with Kevin Tancharoen, [who] directed the digital series for us," Warner exec Lance Sloan stated. "He’s at the helm of the forty, fifty million dollar film."

The Mortal Kombat IP made its gaming debut way back in 1992 and has since gone on to receive nearly 19 sequels.

The first Mortal Kombat film was released in 1995 and was followed by sequel Mortal Kombat: Annihilation in 1997.
