Details on ‘Mortal Kombat: Rebirth’ Short Film

• They shot the short film over two days on two RED cameras

• Started in early April and it took 2 months to do the post production. Most people donated their time. The short was made for $7,500

• Knew if he was going to get a chance at a genre picture, he’d have to show he could do it on his own. This is a calling card for a chance at making the next Mortal Kombat feature film and it’s his vision for how he’d do it.

• No one at any studio knew he was doing the short

• Oren Uziel wrote the short. He’s currently listed on IMDb to write the next Mortal Kombat movie at Warner Bros.

• Says he wants to make a movie that balances the real world with the mysticism and the special powers. Compares it to the way Harry Potter exists in two worlds. As in there are two universes that coexist with each other.

• Confirms “fatalities” are definitely in his movie. He wants to put them in the tournament in an “organic way”

• Definitely would use “get over here” (the classic line from the game)

• Michael Jai White plays Jax Briggs in the short and he’d definitely be a part of the feature. • Says Scorpion is the bad guy and will stay a bad guy

• They only had 4 hours to shoot the big fight scene

I’ve included the video that we previously posted for those that may have missed it. And simply because this thing needs to be seen.
