New Mortal Kombat Movie Borrowing Michael Jai White From The Web Series

There’s an upcoming, and reportedly ‘responsibly priced’ reboot coming for the Mortal Kombat movie series. Last we heard this new film was going to feature a:

lowly unlucky supermarket employee who discovers that he has out of this world powers and must decide between good and evil, even though the evil side has helped him discover his true potential and who he really is.

…which made it sound pretty distinct from director Kevin Tancharoen‘s own Mortal Kombat: Legacy web series.

But maybe not entirely distinct. Michael Jai White, who starred in the first series of Legacy, tweeted the following:

Thanks to Shadow and Act and Little Bleeder Aaron for the pointer to the tweet.

“Coming back” suggests, though not definitively, that White will be playing Jax Briggs again, maybe even that the film will be in continuity with the web series.

If so, it’s possible that many of the other actors from Legacy will be in the movie too – maybe Jeri Ryan, Darren Shahlavi, Matt Mullins.

Or maybe all it means is that Tanharoen wants White in his movie plus White won’t be in the show. Maybe it’s all face value, all the way.
