Everything is looking good for the upcoming Mortal Kombat film reboot.

Writer Greg Russo took to Twitter to announce the news that Simon McQuoid's film will not be family-friendly.

"Since it's already been stated by other members of the team, I'm gonna put this one to bed", Russo wrote in the tweet. It's going to be as bloody and jam-packed with Fatalities as the video games before it. The more passive rating threw a blockade at the franchise's infamous fatalities. All we need is a kick-ass director and some hard-hitting action and we'll finally be given the Mortal Kombat movie we were promised a quarter of a century ago. Perhaps they'll follow the time-hopping shenanigans of Mortal Kombat 11 as a workaround for some extra deaths without needing a larger cast. The plot remains a mystery, but it can be presumed that the movie could cover the first tournament - much like the first film.


The screenwriter for the newest big screen adaptation of "Mortal Kombat" has confirmed that the movie will indeed be rated R.

The roster hasn't been revealed, either, though we do know it will feature our chilly pal, Sub-Zero, played by actor and martial artist Joe Taslim, who also starred as Jaka in The Raid.

The new Mortal Kombat movie has started filming in Australia this year, and is due out sometime in March 5, 2021.
