Last June, the internet was floored by a fan-made concept trailer for a new Mortal Kombat movie. While it sadly didn't end up as a new film, it has got the creator a crack at a new series.


The clip's director Kevin Tancharoen has been handed the keys by Warner Bros. to a 10-part "webisode" series, which will focus on the story of the character Jax, who in a stroke of luck (and genius) will be played by the same man who played him the the concept trailer: Michael Jai White.

Or, as you may know him, Black Dynamite.

A Bloody Disgusting Report says other characters appearing in the series include Shao Kahn, Shang Tsung, Liu Kang, Sub Zero, Durak, Kabal, Kitana, Mileena and Scorpion.

No word on a release date, but even if it's 2017, we can wait.

Any sign that it will be connected to anything else? Webisodes don't generally come in by themselves, especially when they are being made by someone like WB. It's generally more of a marketing tool to keep the name on the forefront.
