James Wan To Try To Top The Masterpiece That Is ‘Mortal Kombat: Annihilation’

As far as video game movie adaptations go, nothing holds a flaming skull to the masterpieces that are 1995’s Mortal Kombat and 1997’s Mortal Kombat: Annihilation. But where there’s a will, there’s a Wan.

A new Mortal Kombat film is in the works, directed by Simon McQuoid and produced by James Wan. In what can surely be a good sign for the success of the film, McQuoid has no previous film directorial credits. Wan’s previous credits include Saw, Dead Silence, Furious 7, and Aquaman. The screenwriter Greg Russo is in the same boat as McQuoid though, as he has no previous screenwriting credits. The studio must’ve thought they were getting one of the Russo Brothers.

No release date has been announced.
