‘Mortal Kombat’ Sequel Moving Forward


New Line is getting back into a fighting stance on a sequel to Mortal Kombat, the action-adventure movie based on the blockbuster video game franchise.

According to Deadline, the studio has hired Jeremy Slater to write Mortal Kombat 2.

Slater was head writer on the Marvel/Disney+ series Moon Knight starring Ethan Hawke.

Based on the video game phenomenon, Mortal Kombat was released simultaneously in theaters and on HBO Max last April; it opened at No. 1 at the box office and quickly ranked among the top films on HBO Max since the platform launched.
