WB has confirmed the live-action digital series of Mortal Kombat.  You won’t get the series for free on youtube as most fans thought it would be.  Instead it will be available to online digital retailers like Amazon.com and iTunes for a small fee.

Here’s the press release from WB:

“Warner Premiere today announced development of a live-action digital series based on the best-selling Mortal Kombat videogame franchise.  Directed by Kevin Tancharoen, known for his popular unofficial fan short Mortal Kombat: Rebirth which garnered over 10 million views online, and in conjunction with the upcoming Mortal Kombat videogame, this action-packed, digital series will take gamers deep into the history of warriors they know and love such as Scorpion, Johnny Cage and Liu Kang.  Shooting for the digital series will take place in Vancouver starting in early February.

Available this spring through online digital retailers from Warner Bros. Digital Distribution, the Mortal Kombat digital series is an anthology of multiple live action shorts, each providing never-before-revealed insights into characters featured in the upcoming videogame as well as the game’s universe.  Additional details, including casting, will be announced in the coming weeks.”

Michael Jai White also said on a podcast that if the shorts are popular enough, WB will greenlight a movie.

I wonder if Johnny Cage will come back for this short flick.  He died in Annihilation, then he died on Rebirth.  I can’t wait for this project, the fight scenes in Rebirth was fun and I like the origins of the characters.

Here’s our interview with Matt Mullins aka Johnny Cage when the video was first released.

Below is the video that caused the hype:
