The hype for the new Mortal Kombat movie has been increasing with every casting choice made. Although slowly since filming hasn’t even begun. We just know a few things, and luckily one of those few things is that hard R rating, baby! Plus fatalities!? Who could ask for more?
The film’s writer himself, Greg Russo, confirmed all of this on Twitter (see above).
Mortal Kombat is a media franchise centered on a series of video games, originally developed by Midway Games’ Chicago studio in 1992.
The 2021 cast itself includes:
Liu Kang – Ludi Lin (Black Mirror, Power Rangers)
Sonya Blade – Jessica McNamee (The Meg, Sirens)
Kano – Josh Lawson (Superstore, Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues)
Sub-Zero – Joe Taslim (Warrior, The Raid, Star Trek Beyond)
Jax – Mechad Brooks (Supergirl, True Blood)
Mileena – Sisi Stringer (Bloody Hell)
Raiden – Tadanobu Asano (Thor: Ragnarok, Mongol: The Rise of Genghis Khan)
Of course there are so many names missing and we hope they get cast soon so we can confirm which characters we are getting.
