As announced in November of 2016, award-winning commerical director Simon McQuoid will be directing the new MORTAL KOMBAT, making this his feature directorial debut. Marshall said that "Mortal Kombat" will create an estimated 580 jobs and 1,500 extras employed, along with $49 million (A$70 million) injected into the South Australian economy. New Line Cinema's highly anticipated epic action film will shoot in and around Adelaide, South Australia and will be shot on Adelaide Studios' Sound Stages, utilizing the state's world-class crews and acting talent, with post-production in South Australia's internationally acclaimed visual effects and post-production facilities. MK has also received a TV show, in the form of 1998's Mortal Kombat: Conquest and the aforementioned web series, where Mileena once said "fucking" and it was really weird. Mortal Kombat 11 is available now on PS4, PC, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch. South Australia offers a 10% rebate for production and post-production spending. The biggest name there is James Wan, the horror-extraordinaire-turned-blockbuster-filmmaker who's producing the adaptation. We need many different elements for its success and have found them all right here-the uniquely lovely landscapes, the outstanding world-class stage facilities and VFX houses, and the brilliant artists and technicians from across the film-making community. "It will be perfectly suited for this fantasy-action project".
