Mortal Kombat (James Wan Producing)

Post by WyldeMan on 8/8/2015, 3:41 pm


Furious 7 director James Wan is stepping in to produce the MORTAL KOMBAT reboot currently underway at New Line and Broken Road.

The in-demand director of The Conjuring and Insidious: Chapter 2 has been brought over to uppercut some new life into the previously stunted picture. With his dark sensibility, ability to orchestrate action and scares, and a wildly successful financial track record, Wan seems to be the perfect fit for what the studio has described as “a departure from the mythology,” with “darker, brutally real martial arts.”

The script, being penned by Mortal Kombat: Legacy writer Oren Uziel and The Expendables writer Dave Callaham, centers around a seemingly harmless guy who realizes his potential when he finds himself caught in the middle of a cross-dimensional battle between the warriors of Earth and the monsters of Outworld. Now, in order to stop the world from total destruction, he must win the martial arts tournament known as ‘Mortal Kombat’.

The film is based on the iconic video game series from Midway Games, which gained notoriety in the early 1990s for its depiction of graphically violent hand-to-hand combat. Since its release, the franchise has sold over 35 million units–more than enough to warrant a reboot of the film series, which stalled out with 1997’s Mortal Kombat: Annihilation. With the white-hot Wan on board, the right buttons may have just been pressed to put the finishing moves on this project.

This has been in the works for......I don't know how long but they need to make it soon. With the amount of time it's taken, it better be the BEST MK movie with sequels to match the Fast and Furious franchise.

NO! I'm sick of the waiting and I want to see MK done right. Shit, Mortal Kombat Legacy was decent and if they can do something close to that then I'll take it.

I couldn't even watch more than half of Furious Seven I just hated it so god damned much. Kevin Tancharoen should be making this, not Wan who hasn't made a good movie since Death Sentence.

Well, he's only producing this so it's shouldn't affect it. He is directing Aquaman though and we'll see how that goes. Loved Death Sentence also.
