Mortal Kombat fans might want to grab their diaries: Warner Bros has announced that its Mortal Kombat movie reboot will, after years of dilly-dallying around, finally arrive in cinemas on 5th March, 2021.
A Mortal Kombat movie reboot has, of course, been long in the works, with Warner Bros first announcing a director and writer for the project – Simon McQuoid and Greg Russo respectively – all the way back in 2016. For a while, it seemed that the reboot had been lost in development hell, until plot and character details began to leak last summer. However, it wasn’t until very recently, following surprise word from South Australia’s Premier, Steven Marshall, that production was confirmed to finally be underway in the area.
All of which brings us more or less up-to-date, and to Warner Bros’ latest announcement that the Mortal Kombat movie (which reportedly has a budget of around £38,000,000, numbers fans) won’t be hitting cinemas until March 2021.
