It was finally confirmed that New Line Cinema/Warner Bros’ Mortal Kombat feature film reboot would shoot primarily at Adelaide Studios in Glenside, South Australia, Australia.
Now we might know when filming could begin on the video game adaption that will be produced by Aquaman’s James Wan.
A new tweet from DiscussingFilm suggests that the film could begin shooting on September 16th.

This would likely mean that casting would begin very soon and we should start learning more details in the coming weeks/months.
ThatHashtagShow previously reported the studio was keen on getting Aussie actor Joel Edgerton for the part of Kano. I wouldn’t be terribly shocked if we see more Australian actors considered for other roles in the movie, given they’ll be shooting there.
Warner Bros. has set the release date for Mortal Kombat for March 5th, 2021. It would put the reboot in direct competition with Sony’s Masters of The Universe reboot.
