Jeremy Slater gives an update to the Mortal Kombat 2 script and promises that the sequel will remain in the “amazing universe” of the franchise.
A fresh release of its limited MCU series Moon KnightJeremy Slater teases what the script is for Mortal Kombat 2 will have its sensitivity. Video game adaptations have a bad reputation among movie buffs. Even Sonic the Hedgehog 2, the most lucrative movie on video games in the US, cannot compete with MCU and its stable box office. However, in recent years this subgenre has been growing and improving.
One of the contributions to the recent trend was 2021 Mortal Kombat. The reboot is infamous Mortal Kombat The film was directed by Simon McQueed, starring Lewis Tan, Jessica McNami, Josh Lawson, Tadanobu Asana, Mehkad Brooks, Ludy Lynn, Chin Khan, Max Huang, Joe Taslim and Hiroyuki Sanada. Despite the average reviews, Mortal Kombat raised more than $ 83 million and became HBO Max’s most successful film when it was released. To be continued, Mortal Kombat 2, is currently under development.
With fans still waiting Mortal Kombat The sequel, writer Jeremy Slater provides information on its development. Slater tells Straight that the script was written about halfway, and the experience was very interesting. He explains that the purpose of the sequel is to create a satisfying but unpredictable film, saying that the team working with him learned from the first film what the audience would respond to. However, Slater argues that the script will not take the tone of the MCU, but instead it will remain in Mortal Kombat‘s “amazing universe“ when using the writer’s sensitivity. Read the full Slater update below:
“So far it’s very fun. We went through about half the script. I work very closely with the director and the studios and the guys from the game, and I think – I can’t say anything about the real story, but I think they definitely learned some lessons last time in terms of, “Here’s the thing, to which the fans responded, and here’s what the people in the film liked, and here’s what didn’t turn out as well as we had hoped. ”So we really see this as a chance to take advantage of everything that worked in the first, and make it even better and give the audience is even bigger and do something that is just incredibly satisfying, and really exciting, and unpredictable.I don’t think it will necessarily have the same tone as the MCU, but it will definitely have some of my feelings. This is Mortal Kombat. all “.
So far Mortal Kombat managed to work well to adapt the video game (especially against the background of the pandemic), its reception could not be compared with the recent blockbusters MCU like Spider-Man: No way home, which came out the same year and became the sixth most profitable film of all time. Given the stark difference between the two films, it may be tempting for the studio to emulate MCU’s tried and true style. Mortal Kombat 2but Slater argues this is not the case. Instead, he applies his feelings – present in Moon Knight – to a separate universe created by video games. Hopefully this will lead to a Mortal Kombat 2 which can be used by both long-time fans and completely new viewers.
Slater’s goal – to blow everyone up – may seem like a daunting task to adapt a video game, but he already has two successful genre adaptations. Slater worked as a writer and executive producer Umbrella Academy season 1which led to the Netflix series getting its second and third seasons, and its latest work Moon Knight just came out on Disney + and got generally positive reviews. If Slater can duplicate the same level of success, Mortal Kombat 2 can really be an amazing sequel.
