James Wan Gives Update On ‘Mortal Kombat’ Movie

Published

James Wan has been taking over the horror game with the Saw, Insidious, and The Conjuring franchises. He also took a stab at comic book movies with Aquaman. What fans really want to know is where the heck is this Mortal Kombat movie.

Get Over Here

Back in 2015, Wan was attached to do a reboot of the Mortal Kombat films. Unfortunately, not much has been said about this movie. With Wan’s busy work schedule, people gave him a pass. In a recent interview with Heroic Hollywood, he discussed the issues surrounding this movie.

Warner Bros.

“That has been such a tricky one just trying to get the script to a point. People don’t know this, fans don’t understand this, but there’s just so much on the business side of things… to try and get the right budget for it, and we want to make sure we have enough resources and the budget to do the film right,” he said.

Finish Him

Following the success of video game franchise Mortal Kombat, New Line bought rights for a film adaptation. The end result, which was released in theaters in 1995, grossed over $122 million. Mortal Kombat was directed by future Resident Evil and Monster Hunter director Paul W. S. Anderson.

New Line Cinema

In 1997, a sequel was released titled Mortal Kombat: Annihilation. Unlike the first film, Annihilation tanked at the box office with $51 million earned. Plans for a third movie were canceled by the studio. In 2011, Warner Bros. announced plans to reboot the film, but it was delayed following director Kevin Tancharoen’s exit. Tancharoen was hired following his acclaimed Mortal Kombat: Legacy web series.

Test Your Might

Much like Tancharoen, Wan is also set to leave the project if things don’t go right. “If I can’t get the right resources and find the right filmmaker for it, I don’t want to do it, and I’m so busy already. I don’t need to clutter my plate with more stuff if I don’t believe it can be done right,” he said.

With Mortal Kombat 11 arriving soon, fans hope to see their favorites on the big screen again.
