When the fan made short of the Mortal Kombat reboot hit the web last summer, it spread like wildfire. The question everyone wanted to know was “Is this for real?” Well good news MK fans, the short is being turned into a 10 part web series. BloodyDisgusting got word that Jeri Ryan, who played Sonya Blade in the short, is back to reprise her role. Joining her are Michael Jai White as Jackson ‘Jax’ Briggs and Darren Shahlavi as Kano.
This is great news. The short that was directed by Kevin Tancharoen was amazing and luckily he’s back to direct the web series. You can also keep an eye on Jeri Ryan’s twitter feed as she has been tweeting about it.
The series is set to be released sometime in the spring but a definite date hasn’t been announced yet. Keep your eyes here for more info as we get it. Check out the Mortal Kombat Rebirth short below.
