“Mortal Kombat” Reboot Films In South Australia

The long in the works live-action reboot of the “Mortal Kombat” franchise appears to be finally happening.

New Line Cinema has signed a deal to shoot the film at Adelaide Studios in South Australia, with pre-production on the video game adaptation to kick off as early as next month.

Visual effects and post-production work will also be completed in Adelaide with the production expected to create 580 jobs and inject $70 million into the state economy. Adelaide Studios has previously been home to films like “Hotel Mumbai,” “Storm Boy,” “I Am Mother,” “Sweet Country,” “The Rover” and “The Babadook”.

Based on the hugely popular video game franchise, James Wan will produce the film which Simon McQuoid will helm. Shooting will kick off before the end of the year.
