This new Mortal Kombat is directed by Australian filmmaker Simon McQuoid, making his feature directorial debut after working in the video game industry (on Call of Duty and Playstation ads, etc). The screenplay is written by Greg Russo and Dave Callaham, from a story by Oren Uziel and Greg Russo. Based on the video game created by Ed Boon and John Tobias. Produced by James Wan, Todd Garner, Simon McQuoid, E. Bennett Walsh. Warner Bros will release Mortal Kombat in theaters + on HBO Max starting April 23rd this spring.
