The Mortal Kombat movie reboot is still in its infancy, although according to officials from South Australia, the martial arts flick is expected to be 'the biggest studio production in local industry's history.' Greg Russo, a 'lifelong gamer, ' is overseeing screenplay duties for the new Mortal Kombat film, while Simon McQuoid is serving as director.
Warner Bros. initially announced the Mortal Kombat movie reboot previous year, although at the time nothing much was said.
'Mortal Kombat will enhance the scope and reach of our production and post-production capabilities'.
In a report by Variety, the film's production is estimated to create 580 jobs alongside the hiring of 1,500 extras.
"I'm really happy and excited to be bringing another show back to Australia with Mortal Kombat, especially after having such a great experience filming Aquaman", Wan said. "It will be perfectly suited for this fantasy-action project". The film will be shot in Adelaide with post-production set to be handled by other VFX studios that are based in the South Australian region.
Here's one from way outta left field: As it turns out, the long-promised Mortal Kombat movie remake is moving ahead at long last, and it will be shooting in, of all places, Adelaide. We need many different elements for its success and have found them all right here-the uniquely attractive landscapes, the outstanding world-class stage facilities and VFX houses, and the brilliant artists and technicians from across the film-making community.
The sequel, Mortal Kombat: Annihilation was released two years later. Now we get to experience South Australia with its scenic locations and a wealth of artistic talent to work with.
While we don't know the actors that will be appearing the Mortal Kombat movie reboot, a character list did leak a couple months ago.
