Mortal Kombat Short Film is becoming a web series

Remember that Mortal Kombat pitch short film that everyone was talking about last year? (If no, then it’s embedded below)

Well apparently Warner Premiere has ordered 10 Episodes for a web series starring Michael Jai White as Major Jackson “Jax” Briggs. The series is to begin filming in February in Vancouver, and is written by Rebirth director Kevin Tancharoen, Todd Helbing, and Aaron Helbing. The Mortal Kombat characters expected to appear include Shang Tsung, Liu Kang, Durak, Sub Zero, Kabal, Kitana/Mileena, and Scorpion. The plot is your usual supernatural dealio: Shao Kahn and Shang Tsung are rumored to be gods from an alternate dimension whom the Kombateers must defeat.
