Another Mortal Kombat movie in the works

Internet short director to helm the project

New Line Cinema has confirmed yet another Mortal Kombat film being readied the back of the successful reboot of the series earlier this year.

The new film will be directed by Kevin Tancharoen who created a short film based on the Mortal Kombat series that became a hit on the internet.

Warner Home Entertainment president Kevin Tsujihara said: "It's really important that we show we can bring our game properties to movies instead of just the other way around. The new game and the online shorts prompted us to consider a reboot of a brand we hadn't been actively thinking about."

The new film is due out some time next year and is believed to cost less than 100 million USD.
