McQuoid to Enter “Kombat”

After a hit live-action adaptation film in 1995 followed by a dismal 1997 sequel, it looked as if we would never get to see the world of Mortal Kombat on the big screen again. However, that may change as a director may actually be locked down to direct a reboot of the original film, based on the Midway video game.

While Kevin Tancharoen directed the hit web series Mortal Kombat: Legacy and was tapped to direct the rebooted third film, he has since left and it looked as if it the MK universe on the big screen was all dead and gone until the announcement of James Wan as producer brought it back to life.

It is now being reported that Australian-born commercial director Simon McQuoid (right) is in talks to direct the reboot of the film. The most recent script has been written by Greg Russo with Wan producing alongside Michael Clear,Todd Garner, and Jeremy Stein.

Wan is also going to begin work on directing Aquaman starring Jason Momoa next year. While the script is still to be approved, it looks like we may be entering Mortal Kombat from New Line Cinema in 2017 or 2018.
