Rumors suggest the franchise fatality wasn't fatal.
Our friends over at Bloody-Disgusting are reporting that Warner Bros. is currently in talks with writer Oren Uziel to pen a reboot of the Mortal Kombat theatrical experience. Industry enthusiasts might remember Uziel's name from the 2009 Black List – a compendium of the year's best unproduced scripts – on which he was credited for a screenplay called Shimmer Lake.
We join our colleagues in praying that Warner Bros. gives us a full-on, big-budget, hard-R bloodbath complete with gory and eviscerating fatalities. Stay tuned to IGN Movies for more as the project develops.
