‘Aquaman’ Director James Wan Will Bring Back ‘Mortal Kombat’

James Wan is undoubtedly one of the most sought-after director in Hollywood today. Perhaps it’s because of his successful movies like “Furious 7,” “Insidious” and “Conjuring” that makes him a popular choice as a director. After it was reported that he will be directing “Aquaman” and was in talks to helm “Robotech” for Sony, one other project that Wan will supposedly helm will certainly put him at the top of the charts. Read on.

According to Uproxx Movies, Wan may be busy transitioning back to horror genre as he works on “Conjuring” sequel titled “Conjuring 2: The Enfield Poltergeist,” reports suggest that he is already having a new project. If rumors are to be believed then he will come aboard to produce a new “Mortal Kombat” movie for New Line Cinema and Broken Road. This is not the first time a movie from the franchise is being planned; few years back the movie was planned with Kevin Tancharoen, who was responsible for “Mortal Kombat” web series.

Tancharoem was said to be directing  the movie. However citing a few reasons, he left the project back in 2013. Since then a lot of content ranging from games to web series, the movie franchise has been released by Midway Games who eventually took it. With a name like Wan adding to the film, it will only help in pushing the movie for production faster.

A little summary about the movie was also released. Written by Dave Callahan and Oren Uziel, it revolves around a man who realizes his strengths and potential and is caught in between inter-dimensional battle between warrior of Earth and monsters from the outer world. If he intends to save his world from the destruction he must take part in the tournament called “Mortal Kombat.”

Following the humongous success of his recent venture “Furious 7,” if James Wan has decided to back the “Mortal Kombat” reboot, fans can surely expect a thunderous action movie coming their way.
