Lol nobody even bothered to read the first line:
Furious 7 director James Wan is stepping in to produce the MORTAL KOMBAT reboot currently underway at New Line and Broken Road.
But then again SH bolded it before the link.

Why waste millions of dollars to reboot a fighting game franchise when there's already a better reboot up on Youtube (for example: MK Legacy)....? :facepalm:

That's exactly the point, apparently Oren Uziel, writer of Legacy, is on board.

But again, if they're not going the fully fantastical route I'm not interested.

This is Mortal Kombat, it's practically Masters of the Universe meets Big Trouble in Little China; grounding it in reality makes no sense.

I'd prefer Gina Carano.

But the one that I'm most curious about is Johnny Cage. No idea who could play him in this day and age.

Carano is lifeless... in my book.

Nicholas Cage for Johnny Cage? 8-)

i didn't care for it. Cool fighting but everything was too realistic. I still want the fantastical elements in there. This is definitely a reboot that I can get excited for.
