Also, “Mortal Kombat” is the most successful HBO Max movie to date, which is a record.
Jeremy Slater has big plans: “Mortal Kombat” will be just one piece of his creative puzzle
As I mentioned earlier, Jeremy Slater is currently involved in the script for “Moon Knight” (where we can see Ethan Hawke and Oscar Isaac), a film that promises not to disappoint.
In addition, the screenwriter is working on a new adaptation of a novel written by Stephen King, “The Tommyknockers”, which will be released under the Universal Pictures logo. Moreover, he will team up with Travis Knight for a new movie that will be available at some point on Netflix.
He also produced “The Umbrella Academy”, a serial film available on Netflix.
It is unknown at this time what he will do after leaving the post. ” In fact, the first part ended in such a way that the sequel now seems like the natural step to follow.
