After years of rumors, discussions and little movement (up until very recently), the long-awaited Mortal Kombat
reboot has finally begun filming. The news was confirmed by writer Greg Russo
. Russo shared the first set photo, which didn't reveal all that much, as it's merely a photo of the clapboard with some very blurry people lingering in the background. But the big takeaway here is that this train is finally rolling down the tracks. Russo had this to say in his caption.
"May the Elder Gods watch over us! #ItHasBegun"
Production is taking place in Australia. This project has been in the works for some time at New Line Cinema, but the studio hadn't managed to crack the code on just how to revive the popular video game franchise for the big screen. It didn't hurt matters when James Wan
, director of The Conjuring
, boarded as a producer.
