Mortal Kombat movie reboot is happening

It looks like the wheels are finally in motion on the oft-delayed movie reboot of Mortal Kombat.

Pre-production on the movie is said to be beginning later this month, according to local reports. Filming will be done in Adelaide, South Australia.

According to reporter Claire Campbell, who attended a press conference by South Australia's Premier Steven Marshall, the film will be the region's biggest ever production, expected to inject 70 million into South Australia's economy and create 580 jobs.

Outside of filming, post-production VFX will all be handled by local companies.

The Mortal Kombat movie, which does not yet have an official title, is produced by Aquaman, and Fast 7 director James Wan, with a script by Greg Russo. It'll be the feature directorial debut of Simon McQuoid, who directed commercials such as the Michael ad for PS3.

We're still waiting on official synopsis, and more importantly, casting news.
