New Mortal Kombat film to be shot in Adelaide, South Australia

James Wan Produced Mortal Kombat Film Announced John F. Trent

Premier of South Australia Steven Marshall has announced that South Australia will be the stage for Mortal Kombat, New Line Cinema's highly anticipated epic action film. The film, which will be a joint production between Warner Bros. and New Line Cinema, will start shooting in Australia later this year.

Expected to generate $70 million in expenditure, create 580 jobs and employ 1,500 extras, the actioner based on the popular videogame franchise will be the largest production to ever take place in South Australia.

It looks like the wheels are finally in motion on the oft-delayed movie reboot of Mortal Kombat.

The remake has been in development for quite some time, with the Saw genius James Wan serving as producer on the movie alongside Tag and Isn't It Romantic producer Todd Garner. Greg Russo, the scribe behind the yet-to-be-released Highwaymen, is on writing duties, making Mortal Kombat the first blockbuster project both the writer and director have worked on.

The upcoming Mortal Kombat movie will be filmed and produced in Australia. Filming will be done in Adelaide, South Australia. LarrY kasanoff, E. Bennett Walsh, Michael Clear, and Sean Robins will executive produce.

"We are thrilled to be highlighting South Australian locations, talent and facilities for Mortal Kombat".

"It brings together all of the components we need to make an ambitious action film a success, and we applaud the South Australian Film Corporation [SAFC] for their role in attracting the production to their region". We don't know which Mortal Kombat game the plot will be inspired by, or if it will decide to carve out a unique story all its own. "I'm grateful to the Premier and people of South Australia for having us, we're all very excited to be here".

Paul W.S. Anderson was responsible for bringing Mortal Kombat to the big screen back in 1995, and is regarded by many to be one of the best video game to movie adaptations of all time.
