New Line Cinema has announced a reboot of the Mortal Kombat film franchise, with Kevin Tancheroen heading up the direction of the new feature film. Tancheroen, who directed the MK: Legacy web series, impressed New Line so much that they wanted to give him a job in directing the new film.
President of New Line Cinema, Toby Emmerich, told the LA Times that the release of the new Mortal Kombat game and Tanchereon's web series "prompted" them to reboot the movies.
"The new game and the online shorts have prompted us to consider a reboot of a brand we hadn't been actively thinking about," said Emmerich.
Sadly, the rebooted film may not see the light of day for some time, as the rights to the series are still being questioned, as Warner Bros and Lawrence Kasanoff (producer of the original films) continues in the courts.
However, you can still check out our video comparison below between the original film and what the new film may look like.
Question of the Day: What do you think of the possibility of a Mortal Kombat film reboot?

Lol my dude Johnny Cage is always dying. But anyway, I am eagerly awaiting the new movie, I love the dark, realistic feel to it, but it was also the lighter hearted feel of the first movie that was able to captivate me at my young age. Because of that, Mortal Kombat has remained my favorite movie since then, it just has a place in my heart you know? God bless me being born in the 1990's.
