Filming on Mortal Kombat 2 is set to commence this month at the Gold Coast’s Village Roadshow Studios, reportedly creating up to 560 jobs and adding $68 million to the local economy.

“I’m so proud that Atomic Monster is able to bring the filming of Mortal Kombat 2 to Australia,” Wan said. “Filming the first film in Australia was such a great experience, I’m thrilled that with the help of Screen Australia and Screen Queensland, we can show off the majestic locations of Queensland and work with the top-notch artistic talent based there.”
