Remember that awesome Mortal Kombat re-imagining from yesterday? It turns out that it wasn’t a trailer for a new game or movie after all – but it could become one.

Yesterday, we got a glimpse at about 8 minutes of what appeared to be an amazingly awesome new take on the aging Mortal Kombat franchise. Speculation ran rampant: Was this a teaser for Warner Bros. upcoming “reboot” of the beloved 1995 movie? In coming a week before E3, was this something to get us hyped up for the announcement of a new, brutal Mortal Kombat game?

According to actress Jeri Ryan – perhaps best known to nerds as spandex-clad Borg hottie Seven of Nine on Star Trek: Voyager – who appeared in the clip as agent Sonya Blade, it’s neither of those things. Speaking via her Twitter account, Ryan explained that it had essentially been a movie pitch – a short clip that a director friend of hers had put together to sell Warner Bros. on his vision for the franchise reboot.

Quoth Ryan, in four separate Tweets: “Okay, so… Mortal Kombat. It’s not a game trailer. Actually was made for the director to sell WB on his vision for a reimagined MK film. More MK FAQs: I did it as a favor to a friend. No idea yet what WB’s reaction to it was. And I’m not sure how you can contact WB […] to push them to make it. But you guys are resourceful…! ;-)”

A Tweet from Wu-Tang Clan’s RZA identified the director as Kevin Tancharoen.

You heard the lady, everybody. If you want to see this become a reality, pick up the phone and get Warner Bros. on the line right now.
