"Mortal Kombat: Generations" will see the return of Casper Van Dien as Johnny Cage, Cary-Hiroyuki Tagawa as Shang Tsung, and Morgan Sticke as Cassie Cage -- all of whom played characters in the previous "Mortal Kombat" webseries from Machinima. The series is set to introduce characters from "Mortal Kombat X," the latest video game in the series.

The script is reportedly being written by "Mortal Kombat: Legacy's" Oren Uziel and "The Expendables'" Dave Callaham, and follows: "...a seemingly harmless guy who realizes his potential when he finds himself caught in the middle of a cross-dimensional battle between the warriors of Earth and the monsters of Outworld. Now, in order to stop the world from total destruction, he must win the martial arts tournament known as ‘Mortal Kombat'."

New Line -- the studio owned by "Mortal Kombat's" rights holder, Warner Bros. -- is producing the "Mortal Kombat" movie reboot.
