Hollywood studio New Line has started working on a sequel to its recent hit movie ”Mortal Kombat”.
The studio has hired Jeremy Slater, who recently worked on Disney Plus’ upcoming series “Moon Knight,” to write “Mortal Kombat 2,” Deadline reported.
” More than happy to join this team! We’re building something bigger, better and bloodier that will blow people away,’ Slater tweeted.
His recent screenplay credits include the Netflix movie ”Uprising” with Travis Knight directing. He is currently adapting Stephen King’s ”The Tommyknockers” for Universal and James Wan. Slater also developed ‘The Umbrella Academy’ for Netflix and was creator and co-showrunner of ‘The Exorcist’ on Fox.
”Mortal Kombat”, released theatrically by Warner Bros in 2021, was based on the video game phenomenon created by Ed Boon and John Tobias.
It included an ensemble cast of Lewis Tan, Jessica McNamee, Josh Lawson, Joe Taslim, Mehcad Brooks, Ludi Lin, Tadanobu Asano, and Chin Han.
The film was directed by Simon McQuoid, who produced with Todd Garner, E. Bennett Walsh and Wan. PTI RB RB RB
