New Action Photo Teaser from Live-Action Director!

03/15/2011 :: Posted at 10:09 PM by Mick-Lucifer
Lights, Camera, Action! Kevin Tancharoen Delivers on Promise of Martial Arts Action!

Humorist Jack Handey once said of the pugilistic arts, "To me, boxing is like a ballet - except there's no music, no choreography, and the dancers hit each other." It probably isn't all that surprising, then, that Warner Brothers would tap Kevin Tancharoen to direct their live-action reinvention of the Mortal Kombat franchise.

Until recently, Tancharoen was best known for his work in the dance world, having choreographed acts as significant as Madonna and Britney Spears. He co-created the MTV reality series, DanceLife, before directing the 2009 remake of musical classic, Fame. These might not sound like the credentials of an MK director, but if his well known proof of concept proved nothing else, he is ready to inject the series with the martial arts choreography it deserves.

Girl Fight!

This time around, @KTANCH has delivered a first look at the action of his upcoming Mortal Kombat live-actiong series.

Described simply via Twitter as "Girl fight!", the subject of the image might just be our first glimpse of fighting femme fatales, Kitana and Mileena. The pair have an association dating back to Mortal Kombat II, where the former Edenian Princess and her sinister pseudo-sibling were first introduced as assassins for series antagonist, Shao Kahn. The pair return in the new video game [render art], which reprises and alters their original plotlines.

If the high flying fighters pictured are indeed warriors of Edenia and Outworld, it's a reassuring follow-up to yesterday's Tarkatan image, also released by the director [full story]. Supernatural content in the adaptation has been a hot topic, but Warner Brothers and the series director remain tight lipped about how the story from the games plays into the show, expected to be released through digital channels in April.

The series stars Michael Jai White, Jeri Ryan, Ryan Robbins, Ian Anthony Daleand more [full story]. For more Mortal Kombat updates, follow MKO on Twitter, @MK_Online.
