Late last year, the Mortal Kombat reboot finished filming with an eye towards an early 2021 release. January 15, 2021 was originally planned to be the release date. However, the coronavirus pandemic has apparently scuttled those plans. Mortal Kombat producer Todd Garner recently confirmed that the cast has been assembled for reshoots. But he also indicated that the film has been pushed back, and won’t get a new release date until movie theaters reopen. You can see his Tweet below.
Well, I thought by the casts’ social media you would’ve figured out we’re shooting a few more days. We’d always planned for it & thought we’d do it in March. The pandemic had other plans. We won’t have a release date for the movie until theaters re-open. Same for trailer.

Ludi Lin will headline the reboot as Liu Kang, with Chin Han as Shang Tsung, Tadanobu Asano as Raiden, Joe Taslim as Sub-Zero, and Jessica McNamee as Sonya Blade. Mehcad Brooks also stars in the film as Jackson “Jax” Briggs, alongside Josh Lawson as Kano, Hiroyuki Sanada as Scorpion, Max Huang as Kung Lao, Sisi Stringer as Mileena, and Elissa Cadwell as Nitara. Additionally, Lewis Tan and Matilda Kimber have undisclosed roles in the film.
