The man behind the Legacy web show will be given a budget between 40 and 50 million USD to turn the series into a full movie, Warner executive Lance Sloan told our colleagues at Total Film.

"We're preparing right now for the film with Kevin Tancharoen, [who] directed the digital series for us," he said. "He's at the helm of the forty, fifty million dollar film."

The big screen movie is said to follow a supermarket employee who "discovers he has bizarre, otherworldly powers that lead him towards a pivotal choice between good and evil."

The first Mortal Kombat film, directed by Paul W. S. Anderson, was released in 1995 and followed up by Mortal Kombat: Annihilation in 1997.
