There’s nothing we bloody love more than gaming or bloody gaming related things, so the news that production has officially started on the forthcoming Mortal Kombat movie fills us with this sort of, er, feeling.
That’s right… the Game On AUS offices received a PR release suggesting that…
“Production is underway on New Line Cinema’s “Mortal Kombat,” with award-winning Australian commercial filmmaker Simon McQuoid at the helm, marking his feature directorial debut. The explosive action adventure is based on the blockbuster video game franchise, which recently released the most successful video game launch in its history, Mortal Kombat 11.”
