Mortal Kombat Reboot Names Simon McQuoid as Director

The James Wan produced reboot of the beloved gaming series on the big screen has moved one step closer to fruition with commercial director Simon McQuoid named as director.

Known for his ads for console gaming (you can check one of them out below), McQuoid is a bold and yet very smart choice given the sort of energy and kinetic action a property like Mortal Kombat requires.

Mortal Kombat first appeared on cinema screens in 1995 via Paul W.S. Anderson and then had a disastrous sequel Mortal Kombat: Annihilation in 1997. In 2015 the gaming world saw the release of Mortal Kombat X.
