Kevin Tancharoen Steps Away From MORTAL KOMBAT Film
A few years back, a privately funded film based on the Mortal Kombat gaming universe made some pretty big waves in Hollywood. The short film took the web by storm and showed that the franchise still had some legs and if placed in the right hands, could be a viable product one again. From there, things jumped to a new web series, that is currently on its second season and has a pretty solid following. Because of the success of that series, the show runner, Kevin Tancharoen was given the opportunity to handle a feature film, which got fans pretty excited. But not much has happened since. They had a script going and it seemed to get stuck in development hell.
After three years on the project, Tancharoen has decided to deal the project a fatality and step away. He took to his Twitter account to break the news. So far, he has not mentioned the third season of Mortal Kombat: Legacy and whether or not he will still take part in that. Sad news for MK fans, as he was the creative and driving force behind the project and had really re-envisioned the characters into something much more modern and grounded. Hopefully they can find someone that can take the reigns and keep this one afloat, but I’d be surprised if it happened.
