It seems that Warner Bros. is preparing to produce more films of Mortal Kombat if the franchise reboot is successful. In a conversation with the medium Variety, the actor Joe Taslim (who plays Sub-Zero in the film that will be released soon) has said that he has signed to shoot four more films of the saga if it continues.
“We don’t know if there is going to be a sequel, we cross our fingers that we do it,” Taslim said. “If the first one is a success, maybe we will do more.”
Although no sequels have been announced at the moment, there is already quite a lot of excitement for the film and that could translate into a commercial success. The Mortal Kombat trailer has become one of the most-watched in history since it hit the internet last February, surpassing what was achieved by Deadpool 2 and Logan. Fans were excited to see the ultra-violent style of the games faithfully adapted to the film, and director Sim McQuoid has promised that “there will be blood and fatalities to the limit” of an adult film.
