Mortal Kombat Reboot Will Finally be Rated R
Screenwriter Greg Russo, still relatively new to the film business, is responsible for two reboots. On the one hand he is working on a new Resident Evil film and on the other hand on Mortal Kombat. While Resident Evil can already boast a total of six films - all of them equipped with an R rating and measured against the budget also with great success at the box office, there are only two theatrical Mortal Kombat films - both with PG-13, the first of which had a solid income while part 2 fell short of that significantly.
Since the theatrical release of Mortal Kombat – Annihilation there have been a number of other projects, of which the short film and the web series Mortal Kombat: Rebirth and Mortal Kombat: Legacy stand out.
After it became known recently that Joe Taslim (The Raid) will play "Sub Zero", screenwriter Russo now commented on the release situation. In contrast to the previous movies, the new film will finally receive an R rating - something that should be taken for granted for this film adaptation anyway when you think about the well-known fatalities. Those especially creative death scenes will also be shown in the film.
A release is planned for spring 2021, the film will be produced by James Wan (Saw, Aquaman) and directed by newcomer Simon McQuoid.
