Fatality. A lot of fans of the video game series Mortal Kombat probably thought this would never happen. But it’s real! After the poorly reviewed but financially successful 90s films, Mortal Kombat is finally getting the reboot it deserves. Today it was made official by filmmaker James Wan (Furious 7, Aquaman) who spoke enthusiastically about the project that will make its way to Australia later this year.
Wan will produce the film for New Line Cinema, with commercial director Simon McQuoid tapped to direct. This will be Simon McQuoid’s first film so you can bet Wan will be heavily involved to make sure the project stays on course.
While we don’t have a firm release date for the film, you can guess based on where it is in production that we probably won’t see it until Summer 2020 at the earliest. Which gives us just enough time for another seven Mortal Kombat games to come out.
