The first season of Kevin Tancharoen’s live action web series “Mortal Kombat: Legacy” effectively rebooted that franchise’s potential outside its native video game arena. Certainly it stoked the fire for talk of a return to the big screen.
Now, with Legacy’s second season slated to hit the web soon, Tancharoen tells Coming Soon that the film reboot is still in the works:
“we’re still pushing through on that. The script is in a good place. we’re just kind of figuring out the budget and locations and that whole process is where we’re at.”
He’s also certain that whatever film does get made, it will be a separate entity from ‘Legacy’.
“I think everyone’s intention is to start fresh because we want Legacy to live on its own possibly for multiple seasons, and when it comes to Mortal Kombat, it’s been around for 20+ years. we’re going to take the mythology and add another layer on it so it can live on for another 20 years or more! I think this is a unique opportunity to set that ground work.”
