Remake of Mortal Kombat film coming?

Hot new screenwriter apparently in talks.

Warner Bros. is looking to remake the 1995 Mortal Kombat movie, according to BloodyDisgusting.

Word is that writer Oren Uziel is in talks to produce the script. Uziel's previous work includes Shimmer Lake, which made the 2009 black list of Hollywood's best unproduced screenplays.

The original Mortal Kombat film was a big old mess, despite the fact it starred Christopher Lambert. So will the remake be any better? Who would you cast in the starring role, readers?
