Last summer, this fantastic short film featuring the characters of Mortal Kombat hit the internet with a furious vengeance as if it were trying to rectify the first two movies.

It might have succeeded.

The short starred Michael “Dynamite” Jai White as Jax, and it’s led to a 10-episode web series.

That web series may very well lead to a movie produced at Warners.

During a conversation with My Take, White claimed that:

  1. Warners wants to do it.
  2. He and Kevin Tancharoen, the director the short, are primed to shoot the webisodes in February
  3. Then they’ll go to Warners to make the movie

White makes it sound like the web series is all part of a Warners plan to promote the film before it’s announced, but it’s unclear whether that’s the case or not. It might be that White simply thinks Warners will be more receptive to the idea of launching a movie once the popularity of the franchise is re-proven through the internet.

Of course all of this could be wishful thinking, but it’s the best kind of wishful thinking – the kind that gets us a truly kick ass movie version of the game we all grew up playing.

See what I did there? Spawn? Michael Jai White? Exactly.
