The franchise has already spawned two movies, one directed by Paul W.S. Anderson that was released in 1995 and a sequel, Mortal Kombat: Annihilation, debuted in 1997.
Greg Russo - the writer of the "Mortal Kombat" movie reboot - has been hired to pen the screenplay for the "Space Invaders" movie at New Line, an individual with knowledge of the project told TheWrap. "MK WILL be R-Rated and for the first time EVER, FATALITIES will FINALLY be on the big screen", he wrote with an enthusiasm for the Caps Lock key going beyond healthy norms.More news: EU signals sanctions on Turkey over Cyprus drilling - draft
This will immediately set the new Mortal Kombat - which is being produced by The Conjuring and Aquaman director James Wan and helmed by first-time director Simon McQuoid -apart from its predecessors, both of which received PG-13 ratings from the MPAA. The more passive rating threw a blockade at the franchise's infamous fatalities. From Scorpion's 'Toasty, ' Kano's heart rip, Sub-Zero's spine-pulling finisher, to Sonya's Kiss of Death, Mortal Kombat has a myriad of bone-breaking finishers to pick from.
There hasn't been much revealed so far about the upcoming film.
