  • A new Mortal Kombat movie is being developed by Warner Bros. Pictures, slated for release in April 16, 2021 both in theaters and on HBO Max.

Trivia

  • A rumoured title for the unmade third Mortal Kombat film was "Mortal Kombat: Devastation".
  • In November 2001, the Mortal Kombat official website hosted by Threshold Entertainment held a poll asking fans which popular characters from the game were believed to die in the unmade third Mortal Kombat film. [1]
  • Chris Casamassa, who played Scorpion in the first Mortal Kombat film, was expected to return. He also said that Hurricane Katrina's destruction of most of the sets in New Orleans in 2005 caused the production of the unmade third Mortal Kombat film was put on hold until further notice.
  • Rumor has it the film was supposed to be a direct sequel to the first Mortal Kombat film rather than a follow up to Annihilation since Annihilation was a box office failure and was poorly received by critics and fans, so the events of Annihilation would have been ignored. [2]
