Bloody Disgusting is reporting that Warner Bros is looking at rebooting the stale and cheesey Mortal Kombat franchise. It makes sense, afterall we know that similar-themed Dragonball and Stree Fighter: The Legend of Chun Li did gangbusters and were high quality flicks.
Warner Bros. Pictures has been looking to redo Mortal Kombat with Oren Uziel in talks to write. Based on Midway's popular 1992 video game, the franchise 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. Uziel's Shimmer Lake made the 2009 black list, which features the best unproduced screenplays around Hollywood. Johnny Cage was modeled after Jean-Claude Van Damme. No word on the progress of the remake, but we'd like to see a hard "R" version with some actual f*cking fatalities.
I coudln't agree more, Mr. Disgusting, I couldn't agree more.
