The “Mortal Kombat” Movie Will Be Filmed in Australia

Finish him!

The long-awaited remake of the video game film Mortal Kombat is finally powering ahead. And as it turns out, the movie will be filmed and produced in Australia.

South Australia Premier Steven Marshall made this announcement in a press conference today, adding that the movie will be shot and produced in Glenside’s highly touted Adelaide Studio.

The development is vital for the Australian film industry as it is inarguably the biggest film ever produced there.

Marvel has also announced that it is filming an upcoming movie in Sydney.

Marshal said:

“The State Government’s investment in Mortal Kombat will enhance the scope and reach of our production and post-production capabilities, bringing the promise of fantastic new jobs for the local film industry.”

Good News for Australia’s film industry

If Australian press reports are to be believed, the popular video game movie will require 1500 extras for the shooting and will create at least 580 skilled jobs besides adding a whopping $70 million to the local economy.

The remake had been in the offing for quite some time, and now, it has been confirmed that the Aquaman genius James Wan will produce the movie alongside Isn’t It Romantic producer Todd Garner.

Renowned commercial director Simon McQuoid is making his feature film directorial debut with the project. The VFX studios will handle the post-production of the video game movie in the region.

There are no details available on casting or the movie plot as yet. What we do know so far is that the pre-production of the film starts later this month and shooting will begin later this year.
