The Mortal Kombat Reboot has its Director
And the quest for the first good video game-based film continues...
The long-gestating Mortal Kombat reboot might finally get the ball rolling as it has now found a director in the form of Simon McQuoid. If that name doesn't sound familiar you're not alone. A little internetz searching on my part revealed that he's a highly accomplished commercial director and that if he sees this project through, it will be his first feature film. I don't know about you guys, but that doesn't exactly inspire confidence. Of course I'll give the man a chance, I've actually heard that working on commercials is a common practice for new directors to get their feet in the door for feature-length directorial duties.
While we wait for more news on this project I recommend you all watch the original two films, so long as you have the recommended amount of alcohol.
