Mortal Kombat movie shooting for R rating, will feature Fatalities

Insight into the new Mortal Kombat movie has been slowly trickling out since its announcement in May.

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. While the first two films took that route, the brand-new installment is going all-out with an R. This was confirmed by the movie's screenwriter, Greg Russo. Unlike the cheesy techno-fest of '90s Mortal Kombat movies (and I say that with love), the new movie will have an R rating and feature some choice fatalities from the games.

Mortal Kombat movie writer Greg Russo came to give us hope. This film will follow the plot as all basic MK films and Games. For anyone unfamiliar, Taslim is most famous for his work in the Indonesian martial arts-action film, "The Raid: Redemption", and his appearance in "Fast & Furious 6".

Reptile is teased for "Mortal Kombat X". Perhaps they'll follow the time-hopping shenanigans of Mortal Kombat 11 as a workaround for some extra deaths without needing a larger cast.

Taking to Twitter, Russo, who has penned the screenplay for 2021's Mortal Kombat movie as well as the forthcoming Resident Evil reboot, has put to rest any fears that the rebooted instalment would be taking cues from the tamer Mortal Kombat adaptations.
