Most famous movies are followed by video games. But some games leave the world awestruck and turn the tables.
The first behind the scenes photos of James Wan’s Mortal Kombat Reboot made it to the social media and left fans in a frenzy. All thanks to the film’s writer, Greg Russo. The screenwriter took to Twitter to share the same with fans of the famous game.
Mortal Kombat Reboot officially kicks off filming
Greg Russo has been more than ecstatic with his next project and his Twitter handle is proof of that. So, keeping in line with his enthusiasm, he took to social media and posted a BTS (behind the scenes photo) from the film’s set. Moreover, the image he shared had a short and sweet caption with it “May the Elder Gods watch over us!” This was accompanied by a hashtag that announced that the filming has begun! “#ITHASBEGUN”
If you see closely, you would notice the Mortal Kombat Reboot’s official logo on the board. Though it not very clear, but one could make out the iconic dragon symbol. Do you see it now?
Warmed up and good to go
We already know who is writing for the next installment in the franchise. Apart from that, Mortal Kombat Reboot will star Ludi Lin as Liu Kang, Mehcad Brooks as Jax, Joe Taslim as Sub-Zero, Jessica McNamee as Sonya Blade, Sisi Stringer as Mileena, Josh Lawson as Kano, Tadanobu Asano as Raiden, Chin Han as Shang Tsung, Hiroyuki Sanada as Scorpion, and Lewis Tan in a role that has to be disclosed. But apart from that, the plot of the movie is unknown.
As the movie is loaded with action and thus various stunts; the actors are busy training rigorously. In fact, earlier this month, Mehcad Brooks (Jax) gave a peek at how he is busy training to get in the shoes of his character.
Are you warmed up too? Mortal Kombat reboot will hit the theaters on March 5, 2021.
From video games to the silver screen
While the cast and crew are all warmed up for the production, did you know that Mortal Kombat franchise took off with their first video game in 1992? And then there was no turning back! Various sequels flooded the market.
But Mortal Kombat Reboot is not the first time that the video game would make it to the silver screen. The idea was first adapted into a feature film directed by Paul W. S. Anderson. In fact, it was huge hit as the film bagged $122 million worldwide!
