It turns out that making fan videos of your favorite video games can get you real work. Remember Mortal Kombat: Rebirth, the fan-made movie trailer for a fake Mortal Kombat movie? Well is seems that director Kevin Tancharoen’s entrepreneurial attitude has paid off. Tancharoen has been offered to direct a 10-episode web series for Warner Bros based on the Mortal Kombat franchise.

Bloody Disgusting is reporting that actor Michael Jai White (The Boondocks and The Tyler Perry Show) will be returning as Major Jackson 'Jax' Briggs, but no other actors have been cast at this point. Filming begins in February, so no release date has been scheduled either.

Here is the original trailer for Mortal Kombat: Rebirth.
