Mortal Kombat To Film Here, Radio News * Marilyn Russell * 1210 WPHT
We made it. Happy Friday everyone. Social Season is heating up, and if you’re here to see your photo I took this week I will have links to all the placements Saturday. Today we’re going to chit chat about what’s happening in Philly, and a little Philly Gossip.
I’ve heard more than one rumor that a re-start of the movie “Mortal Kombat” is to begin filming in Philadelphia in April. Additional rumors are that it will star Ryan Reynolds, Vin Diesel, Megan Fox, Ronda Rousey, and Michael Jai White. Write Greg Russo tweeted today that everything is in place except for the OK by Warner Brothers.
That’s Nearly A Wrap as M. Night Shyamalan ‘s untitled 10 part Apple TV Series completed scenes with principle actors Rupert Grint and Lauren Ambrose on the 1600 block of Locust Street at St. Mark’s today. I’m told there are still a few smaller scenes to shoot, but not with the two stars. Night’s last project – Glass, which also filmed here, is still on the big screen. A huge success it’s brought in: $244,167,957 worldwide to date.
Congrats to the Greater Philadelphia Film Office for Philadelphia beinging named The Best Places to Live and Work as a Moviemaker 2019: Big Cities
