James Wan’s Mortal Kombat Movie Is Officially Happening
Finally, the film that makes so much talk about him, finally began, with James Wan ( The Conjuration Aquaman ) ready to produce. We have been hearing about this project for several years now, with only a few occasional updates every few months. However, real progress seemed to be making headway. However, things have finally cleared up and Wan will team up with New Line Cinema to bring the much-loved and violent video game franchise to the big screen for a modern audience.
According to a new report, . Mortal Kombat will be shooting in South Australia. Pre-production should begin at the end of the month. It is expected that the production will use Australian teams and will even be responsible for post-production and visual effects. As noted earlier, commercial director Simon McQuoid is expected to lead the project, which will be his first film. James Wan had this to say in a statement.
"I am really happy and excited to bring another show to Australia with" Mortal Kombat especially after having had such a great shooting experience of Aquaman. "
At the present time, details of the plot have not been revealed, so there is not much left to say. But as pre-production starts very soon, we should know more about casting as soon as possible. Some rumors circulate in this regard, a report suggesting that Joel Edgerton might be interested in Kano's role. Beyond that, it's hard to know which characters from the long history of the video game will appear on the screen. This will largely depend on Greg Russo, who drafted the current draft of the script. Russo is also responsible for the ongoing restart Resident Evil .
James Wan has a great relationship with New Line and his parent company, Warner Bros. He is responsible for The Conjuring film universe, which has always been a big box office income. Wan also helped to turn the tide for DC Films with Aquaman who grossed $ 1.14 billion at the box office, becoming the most profitable film of all time on DC. The studio probably hopes that this magic will fade from their last attempt to adapt big budget film. Warner Bros. recently published the detective Pikachu and, as shown by video game movies, he was quite well received and is doing pretty well at the box office.
The restart of the film Mortal Kombat takes so long
That said, Mortal Kombat will be completely different. This is an ultra-violent video game franchise and the film will certainly be rated R. The games had already been adapted for the big screen, with the first film coming in 1995. A sequel, Mortal Kombat : Annihilation, was released in 1997. No film has been received very well by critics, but they have been among the first wave of great adaptations of video games in Hollywood. The new film Mortal Kombat does not have a definite release date yet, but we will not fail to keep you informed of the new release of the project. Variety has already reported this news.
