Mortal Kombat

It looks the Mortal Kombat: Generations, the live action web series first announced back in January, is still alive and kicking. Director Garrett Warren confirmed on Twitter that a trailer for the series will release early in 2016, with the series itself following later in the year.

Generations will feature several returning cast members from previous series Mortal Kombat: Legacy, includingCasper Van Dien as Johnny Cage, Cary-Hiroyuki Tagawa as Shang Tsung, and Morgan Sticke as Cassie Cage. The series will focus on the new generation of fighters introduced in Mortal Kombat X, with rumors circulating that Ron Yaun will play Hanzo, Booboo Stewart from X-Men: Days of Future Past will play Takeda, and Lewis Tan will play Kung Jin.

More recent rumors also have Ray Park as Erron Black and Haley Lu Richardson as an adult Cassie Cage. The character of Jacqui Briggs is also rumored to be making an appearance, and Arrow star Caity Lotz is said to have a role, possibly as Sonya Blade.

While he didn’t off anything substantive, Warren did confirm that there are still plans for a new Mortal Kombat film, and he seemed confident that that project was also moving forward.
