Originally scheduled for January 2021, the long-awaited reboot of ‘Mortal Kombat’ has been postponed indefinitely due to the coronavirus pandemic. Through his Twitter, producer Todd Garner revealed new information about the production launch.
“We won’t have a release date until the theaters reopen. The same will happen with the launch of the trailer. “
The producer also confirmed that the film will undergo additional filming, which should have taken place in March.
The reboot will be directed by Simon McQuoid and produced by James Wan.
Greg Russo is responsible for the script for the new version.
The cast includes Joe Taslim (Sub Zero), Ludi Lin (Liu kang), Jessica McNamee (Sonya Blade), Mehcad Brroks (Jax) Josh Lawson (Kano), Chin Han (Shang Tsung), Hiroyuki Sanada (Scorpion), Tadanobu Asano (Raiden), Sisi Stringer (Mileena) and Lewis Tan, still without a defined character.
The soundtrack will be provided by Benjamin Wallfisch (“It: Chapter 2”).
The new feature will be for people over 18, with the promise of lots of violence and death.
Released in 1995, the first adaptation of “Mortal Kombat” had a budget of $ 18 million and grossed $ 122.1 million at the global box office. The sequel, “Mortal Kombat – Annihilation,” cost $ 30 million, but only raised $ 51.3 million worldwide. Both have been slaughtered by critics.
