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 MirrorPower Rangers)

Sonya Blade – Jessica McNamee (The MegSirens)

Kano – Josh Lawson (SuperstoreAnchorman 2: The Legend Continues)

Sub-Zero – Joe Taslim (WarriorThe RaidStar Trek Beyond)

Jax – Mechad Brooks (SupergirlTrue Blood)

Mileena – Sisi Stringer (Bloody Hell)

Raiden – Tadanobu Asano (Thor: RagnarokMongol: 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.
