This was confirmed by the movie’s screenwriter Greg Russo who wrote on Twitter, “Since it’s already been stated by other members of the team, I’m gonna put this one to bed. MK WILL be R-Rated and for the first time EVER, FATALITIES will FINALLY be on the big screen (and no I’m not gonna say which ones) You’ll just have to wait for the movie & see!!! ;)”
There is currently no word on when the Mortal Kombat movie will be released, but we reckon that we might have to wait a while. However, what we do know is that it will be action-packed and will most likely have a dark tone to it. This is thanks to the fact that James Wan, known for the Saw movies, will be producing the movie, while actor Joe Taslim has also been cast as Sub-Zero.
To date, video game movie adaptations have never really done too well, so we are skeptical about the success of this movie, but we’ll have to wait and see how it pans out.
