There have been all kinds of rumors making the rounds as of late about the forthcoming film reboot for Mortal Kombat, which is being handled by producer James Wan and his team at Atomic Monster.
Well, we already reported on one story earlier today with a producer noting that nothing was happening yet. But now Wan, who is directing the upcoming Aquaman, recently took to Twitter to address the rumors.
Said Wan, “Please don’t be so easily baited by faux information. Good & bad news: nothing is happening yet. Literally. Still in early development. Anyone who tells you the movie is location scouting or casting is trolling you.”
With that, a number of fans have already responded in a number of supportive ways, along with a little playful jab or two for good measure. Check out the best tweets below!

We will wait as long as needed. We believe your team will get the script just right to let each iconic beloved character to shine and your #MortalKombat will raise the bar for Hollywood in shooting fight scenes.— Kitana Fan Page (@KitanaFanPage) July 12, 2018
We’ll let you know when any official progress is made on the film. For now, though, it appears Wan’s focus is on finishing up Aquaman in time for its appearance at San Diego Comic-Con, and its eventual release later this year.
