The latest Mortal Kombat movie release date has been announced and it has the fans of the series as well as the games completely stoked!
There has been a lot of talk about the new Mortal Kombat movie, especially since James Wan was brought aboard to produce a few years ago. However, the project never seemed to get off the ground. Now, after a long wait and a lot of speculation, the new Mortal Kombat had finally started pre-production and has a release date too! As reported by Variety, Warner Bros announced the date to be March 5, 2021, and the movie is also ready to fight off some strong competition as the release date of 'Masters of the Universe' adaptation is also the same. 'Masters of the Universe' was supposed to be released sometime this year, but that is not happening as the release date has been pushed back to next year. Here is everything you need to know about the movie.
Not much is known about the plot of the movie either, but it has been reported by various media outlets that Greg Russo is the screenplay writer for the movie. Russo has also written the scripts for 'Resident Evil' and 'Saints Row'. But, given the fact that the movie is about Mortal Kombat, the audience can expect a lot of fights and tournaments which is more like battles between the mortals and the elder gods.
As previously reported, the pre-production of the movie has already set to begin this year in June with the location being South Australia.
There is no news of the cast yet, but we can talk about the characters.
Kano, Liu Kang, Sub-Zero, Scorpion, Sonya Blade, Johnny Cage, and Raiden are the original seven characters. Who all will play these characters remains to be seen.
Given the fact that the movie will be released sometime next year, it is safe to say that it will be a while until a trailer of the movie releases. But, keep an eye out for this space as we will update it as soon as any news of the trailer arrives.
The reboot will be directed by Simon McQuoid, who is making his feature directorial debut. McQuoid is an Australian award-winning commercials director.
