Moon Knight Screenwriter Roped In for the Mortal Kombat Sequel?

‘Moon Knight’ screenwriter Jeremy Slater has worked on many acclaimed projects like ‘Fantastic Four’ and ‘Death Note’. Now, looks like the writer will make his contribution to another big name. ‘Mortal Kombat’ sequel is in the works at Warner Bros. and New Line Cinema and, Jeremy Slater has been tapped to write the screenplay. Even though plot details, as well as returning or newly cast actors, have not been finalised, having Slater in the film is enough to seal the deal for a lot of people.

According to, Warner Bros. and New Line had quietly been looking to develop other instalments in its ‘Mortal Kombat’ universe, but plans for a follow-up film had not been official until Slater had been hired to pen the script.

The first ‘Mortal Kombat’, a martial arts-inspired adaptation of the popular video game, opened in theatres and on HBO Max last April. Despite mixed reviews, the R-rated movie still managed to generate solid ticket sales at a time when most people were largely steering clear of their local cinema. It earned $42 million domestically and $83 million worldwide. Simon McQuoid, who directed ‘Mortal Kombat’, previously hinted to Variety that he would be interested in expanding the movie into a gory action franchise.

The companies backing ‘Mortal Kombat II’ have not announced whether or not McQuoid will return to direct the sequel. “None of us used the as-word.’ We’d never talk about it in any depth whatsoever because we feel like we have to put all our energy into this film,” McQuoid said in reference to the release of 2021’s “Mortal Kombat. That being said, if the fans want another one, that’s not for us to decide; that’s for the fans to decide. Then, we need a couple of joiner pieces that we know can lead us somewhere because there’s a treasure trove of stuff that’s just sitting there.”
