The upcoming new Mortal Kombat movie from producers James Wan and Simon McQuoid has officially been given a release date. Warner Bros. announced late yesterday that the film will hit theaters on March 5th, 2021. The property first made it to the big screen back in 1995 with Paul W. S. Anderson’s take on the fighting game franchise, which was followed by Mortal Kombat: Annihilation two years later.
Simon McQuoid is directing a screenplay written by Greg Russo (Highwaymen) and leading the creative effort alongside Wan. Joining them as executive producers are Larry Kasanoff (Mortal Kombat, True Lies), E. Bennett Walsh (Men in Black: International, The Amazing Spider-Man 2), Michael Clear (The Nun, Lights Out), and Sean Robins (Playing with Fire, Tag). Also producing is Todd Garner.
Production on the new Mortal Kombat film is set to kick off later this year with pre-production getting underway by the end of May. The film is scheduled to be released on March 5th, 2021.
