James Wan-Produced ‘Mortal Kombat’ to Shoot in Australia for New Line

15 May 2019

The most recent draft of the screenplay was written by Greg Russo.

Pre-production work will begin later this month, with full production to get under way before the end of the year.

The Mortal Kombat movie will be filmed at Adelaide Studios in Glenside and will create 580 new jobs along with bringing $70 million AUD into the local economy.

"Mortal Kombat will be the largest film production in South Australia's history and highlights the importance of engaging with the world's major production houses", said Marshall. LarrY kasanoff, E. Bennett Walsh, Michael Clear, and Sean Robins will executive produce.

"It's the biggest production that's ever been in Adelaide, that's for sure, and because it's an action-adventure film, the requirements are so much more and it goes into manufacturing and it goes into just the amount of people we have to hire". "The state government's investment in "Mortal Kombat' will enhance the scope and reach of our production and post production capabilities, bringing the promise of fantastic new jobs for the local film industry".

The original Mortal Kombat film was released in 1995, followed by a sequel Mortal Kombat: Annihilation in 1997. South Australia offers a 10% rebate for production and post-production spending. In terms of horror films, he's best known as the director of Saw and the creator of The Conjuring cinematic universe. We need many different elements for its success and have found them all right here-the uniquely attractive landscapes, the outstanding world-class stage facilities and VFX houses, and the brilliant artists and technicians from across the film-making community. Animation is also working on a Mortal Kombat animated film. Murmurs about a new film in the venerable fighting game series have been doing the rounds for years now, so it's good to see something finally materialise after all this time.
