New Line Is Bestowing A New Mortal Kombat Movie On us Mere Mortals

Ever feel like something is missing from your life? Like, for instance, a new Mortal Kombat movie to remind you of a long ago time when Christopher Lambert had a career? I do, and New Line must have sensed my pain because today they confirmed that yes, they are indeed producing a brand new Mortal Kombat movie.

New Line will be partnering with Warner Interactive for the film, which will be directed by Kevin Tancharoen who last year blew up the Internet with his own short film based on the franchise. Budget is estimated at more than 100 million and it’s set for a 2013 release. So assuming we all survive the Mayan apocalypse, 2013 is going to be a delightfully violent time for all the good boys and girls.

Really though, the only question I have is whether or not Christopher Lambert gets a cameo. COME ON, NEW LINE, MAKE THIS HAPPEN.

Christopher Lambert must return as Raiden, and Linden Ashby must be Johnny Cage.

The first MK movie was excellent.
