Warner Bros has confirmed the production of a live-action Mortal Kombat series of short videos, based around the rebirth trailer (itself based on the series of fighting games). The shorts will feature classic 'kombatants' such as Johnny Cage, Liu Kang, and Scorpion. It's unclear at this stage whether they'll connect together with an overarching plot or whether they'll be stand-alone; it's also unknown as to how long each of the video shorts will be.
Kevin Tancharoen, director of the fan-made rebirth, will return and filming will begin in February - the series is expected to debut later this year.
Warner Bros revealed the series will be available through digital distribution, but stopped short of announcing the format and pricing.
