Reboot of Mortal Kombat Finishes Production

Writer Greg Ruso recently announced on social media that the reboot of Mortal Kombat has officially completed production.  However, it is far from being complete, as Warner Brothers announced it would not hit theaters till January 15, 2021. Few details have been released about the movie and we may be a while before we start seeing trailers.  People are hopeful since James Wan along with Todd Gardner are producers, but it is Simon McQuoide’s feature debut.

 

Greg Russo took to social medial with the following,

 

“Congrats to the amazing cast and crew of #MK2021 on the wrap today! Thank you for being so awesome to work with. The passion and dedication I felt was insane. Hope you get some much needed rest over the holidays!”

 

He was not the only one, Lewis Tan posted wrap pictures and videos on Instagram with a long statement.

 

“Picture wrap on Mortal Kombat? This will take awhile to process before I can put the feelings into words accurately, for now I’m depleted, physically and emotionally, I’m delighted and exhilarated, that is how it should feel at the end, give everything for the art. Risk it all. We made something truly special here. I’m proud. The filmmakers and crew were top of their class and beyond professional. Australia delivered unique and breathtaking landscapes. The cast have created a family and bond that will last forever. Thank you @simonmcquoid for your trust and guidance, you are the embodiment of a leader…”

 

Although we have not learned about the plot, some pictures and short videos have been released from the crew.  Josh Lawson who will be playing Kano, released videos of him practicing wielding a digger knife. Lewis Tan who may be Cole Turner, could be seen practicing boxing moves. New actress, Sisi Stringer (Mileena) showed off some of her skills as well. Other actors in the film include Joe Taslim (Sub-Zero), Hiroyuki Sanada (Scorpion), Chin Han (Shang Tsung, Ludi Lin (Liu Kang), Jessica McNamee (Sonya Blade), Tadanobu Asano (Raiden) and Mehcad Brooks (Jax). One thing we can take away from the cast line up, is they may be staying true to the video game as far as most of the characters.

 

Guess we will have to wait before we see trailers to get a real feel for what the reboot of Mortal Kombat will look like.

Horror ghoul since childhood. I started my horror passion at the age of six, when I would sneak and sit in the hallway next to my parent's bedroom and watch horror movies via their tv. I clearly remember being terrified watching Cujo and The Amyitiville Horror. My world was rocked in the 5th grade when I saw Night of the Living Dead and the Texas Chainsaw Massacre. A couple years later I would ride my bike every weekend to the ma and pa video store and get hypnotized by the amazing artwork on the VHS horror movie covers as I decided, painstakingly, which three I would rent. Fast forward to the pizza in my lap, the lights out and I'm all alone, then press play. I was terrified but loved the adrenaline. I sought out all things horror and continue to do so and have expanded my passion (thanks to a bank account) and now I consume all horror movies from the classics to current, foreign and broadside and I do not discriminate by sub-genres.
