'Mortal Kombat' digital series coming

"Mortal Kombat" fans rejoice!

Warner Bros. has announced it's developing a live-action digital series based on the best-selling video game franchise.

The series will be directed by Kevin Tancharoen, who is known for his popular unofficial fan short "Mortal Kombat: Rebirth," which racked up more than 10 million views online.

Done in conjunction with the release of the upcoming "Mortal Kombat" video game, the digital series will take gamers deep into the history of warriors like  Scorpion, Johnny Cage and Liu Kang.

The digital series will be available this spring through online digital retailers. Shooting will start in early February in Vancouver.

Warner Bros. is owned by the same parent company as CNN.

    so CNN is owned by the same company as WB?
    so this isnt a review, it's an ad for the WB series...
    i wish i could run commercials for free and call them news.

    the director is a dancer. he made a remake of Fame.
    he made a trailer with professional help from connections in the industry. anyone can make a trailer with inside help.
    he then got this job with a sleazy internet whisper campaign.
    why is CNN telling fans to rejoice? who wrote this ariticle?
    wake up.
