After months of waiting there’s finally some new update on New Line Cinema’s Mortal Kombat reboot film which is being handled by James Wan’s Atomic Monster studio.
According to a new report coming from Omega Underground, the filmmakers are likely searching for locations to shoot the film in Chicago. The report added that it’s currently unknown if the film will be shot in exterior locations in Chicago or if it will shoot at the Cinescape Chicago Film Studio.
As per the report, the team also previously scouted various locations in Australia and New Zealand including Village Roadshow Studios in Queensland and Stone Street Studios in Wellington. James Wan’s Aquaman was shot at Village Roadshow and New Line Cinema’s Lord of The Rings and Hobbit trilogies were shot at the Stone Street Studios.
The film is still in early stages of development, so, it’s better to take the information with a pinch of salt until the news is entirely confirmed. There are reports which claim that Simon McQuoid is the likely contender to be roped in to helm the Mortal Kombat reboot film. It is expected that Atomic Monster will soon start casting for the film.
Meanwhile, James Wan’s is currently busy working on his next film Aquaman which is slated to hit theaters later this year. The director has already confirmed that he will be releasing the first Aquaman trailer at the San Diego Comic-Con 2018 next month. DC Films and Warner Bros. showcased the trailer exclusively at CineEurope 2018 event in Barcelona, Spain.
The Aquaman origin story is expected to focus on Jason Momoa’s Arthur Curry aka Aquaman and dive much deeper into the character’s past. It will explore Arthur’s journey in discovering his powers and his reluctance to accept his role as King. Aquaman is set to debut in theatres on December 21, 2018.
