Uziel was originally attached to pen an early piece for the film, and in a recent interview he described what it was going to be. “I don’t know what remains of this, but I know that it was going to be—it’s almost like if you took The Avengers, or if you took a storyline like that and set it in a sort of hard-R, over-the-top violence and hard-edged world of Mortal Kombat,” Uziel explained. “It was a little bit like that, it was a little bit like a Wanted-type story that brought together a bunch of these characters and just pulled zero punches, and had a tone that was still fun but very dark.” “I know James Wan came on to produce, so that to me was a good sign that maybe things were heating up again, but beyond that I really don’t know the specifics,” the writer added. Nothings concrete on New Line’s decision to go forward with his vision for the movie, says Uziel. Dark Universe will keep you Mortal Kombat fans updated as soon as we know more.
