Minecraft, Mortal Kombat 2 Movies Set to Resume Filming

The Minecraft adaptation and Mortal Kombat 2 movies will reportedly resume filming in 2024. This is thanks to studios and the SAG-AFTRA union reaching a tentative agreement, ending the strikes that halted production for the past three months. [Thanks, Deadline!]

Minecraft and Mortal Kombat 2 are part of a range of movies that are set to resume filming in 2024. Minecraft is an adaptation of Mojang’s beloved crafting game. While plot details are unknown, it will be directed by Jared Hess and star Jason Momoa (Aquaman) and Matt Berry (What We Do in the Shadows).

Mortal Kombat 2 is the sequel to 2021’s Mortal Kombat reboot of the movie timeline. It will be directed by Simon McQuoid, just like the first movie. While initial reports suggesting filming will resume in 2024, producer Todd Garner confirmed that filming is set to resume before the end of 2023.

The news of these movies resuming production isn’t the only recent adaptation news. Nintendo announced that an adaptation of The Legend of Zelda is the works, with producer Avi Arad working alongside Shigeru Miyamoto.

No release date has been confirmed for either Minecraft or Mortal Kombat 2. Minecraft is on the PS3, PS4, Vita, Switch, 3DS, Xbox 360, Xbox One, PC, and mobile devices. Mortal Kombat 1 is on the PS5, Switch, Xbox Series X, and PC.
