Furious 7 Director To Produce Mortal Kombat Reboot

With Mortal Kombat X reviving the bloody video game franchise, it just make sense that a Hollywood reboot would soon follow.

The production for the Mortal Kombat reboot from New Line Cinema and Broken Road is about to get a little faster and more furious. Furious 7 director James Wan has signed on to produce the project, according to Tracking Board.

Wang is best known for orchestrating spectacular action sequences. He will also be directing the Aquaman film.

The upcoming film has been described by the studio as "a departure from the mythology" with "darker, brutally real martial arts."

The reboot "centers around a seemingly harmless guy who realizes his potential when he finds himself caught in the middle of a cross-dimensional battle between the warriors of Earth and the monsters of Outworld. Now, in order to stop the world from total destruction, he must win the martial arts tournament known as ‘Mortal Kombat'."

The script is being written by Mortal Kombat: Legacy writer Oren Uziel and TheExpendables writer Dave Callaham. Are you looking forward to watching the Mortal Kombat reboot?
