'Mortal Kombat' Reboot In Works


'Mortal Kombat' Reboot In Works


Following report in 2007 that a reboot of 'Mortal Kombat' is planned, Warner Bros. Pictures is said in negotiation with Oren Uziel to write the upcoming movie project.

Warner Bros. Pictures is reportedly moving forward with their plan to make a reboot of "Mortal Kombat" film franchise. Bloody Digusting has just learned that the studio has been in talks with Oren Uziel to pen the script of the forthcoming movie. Uziel's screenplay called "Shimmer Lake" once appeared on the 2009 black list, which is a compendium of the year's best unproduced scripts.

There has no been further information on the progress of the remake. However, back in 2007, there were words that a reboot treatment is planned for "Mortal Kombat" under the title of "Mortal Kombat: Devastation". At the time, it was stressed that the new movie won't be "a prequel, sequel, or in any form be related to the previous 2 movie", but will be made in the vein of "Batman Begins".

Based on Midway's popular 1992 video game, "Mortal Kombat" tells the story of 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. The latest film from the franchise was "Mortal Kombat: Annihilation" which was released in 1997.
