There's a new Mortal Kombat
movie in the works, one that will not only film in South Australia
but have its post-production work done there too. Writer Greg Russo, who's also working on a Resident Evil
movie reboot has taken to Twitter to note that at this stage the Mortal Kombat film will be rated R and will feature Fatalities.
Now, the U.S. R-rating could mean an MA-15+ rating for the Australian release - but with Mortal Kombat 11
being given a hard R-18+ rating due to the violence seen in the many fatalities, it could definitely be the case here too.
The Mortal Kombat movie project is moving pretty steadily too, as actor and martial artist Joe Taslim (The Raid) has been cast as Sub-Zero
. And when it comes to Fatalities, Sub-Zero's usual setup of freezing someone and then having them break apart is something we can definitely see popping up in the movie.
