Fan film-makers, your dreams can come true. New Line cinema revealed today that it is developing a big screen Mortal Kombat movie to be made by Kevin Tancharoen, the guy who directed the Mortal Kombat: Legacy films, films that were born of a fan-film with no official affiliation with the original product.
There are no actors attached as yet to the project, and no more information available; it's in the early stages of development, but I'd like to offer my services to play Noob Saibot. I love that Noob Saibot.
Given the track record of 30 years worth of game-to-film adaptations, I fully expect this flick to never be made, and if it is, to be terrible, but at least we know that, should Uziel and Tancharoen stay onboard, people with a love and understanding of the game will be involved in making the movie. So there's a (tiny bit) of hope.
What do you think? Is this exciting news? Or terrible news? Oh, and check out episode 1 of Mortal Kombat Legacy for a look at what Mortal Kombat could look like on the big screen.
