Jax, Raiden & Mileena Also Cast For MORTAL KOMBAT
 

 

Supergirl actor Mehcad Brooks, Thor: Ragnarok actor Tadanobu Asano, Australian newcomer Sisi Stringer and Power Rangers actor Ludi Lin are stepped into the ring for the project, which is based on the iconic video game.

James Wan and Todd Garner are producing the mano-a-mano adaptation which will be the feature debut of veteran commercial director Simon McQuoid.

While the plot of the film remains unknown, the video game centers on a massive roster of character f*ghters from different realms in a fictional universe battling for supremacy. Greg Russo penned the current version of the screenplay.

Joe Taslim is already on board as Sub-Zero.

Brooks will be playing Jackson ‘Jax’ Briggs, the Special Forces muscleman who is a mainstay in the video game franchise; Stringer is Mileena, the unstable, sai-jabbing a*sassin; Lin is Liu Kang, one of the game's original characters, a monk-turned-f*ghter. Asano, a veteran actor in his native Japan, is in negotiations to play Raiden, the Japanese god of thunder.

New Line is aiming to have a diverse international cast so as to reflect the global nature of the franchise, with actors coming in from the worlds of film, television, and martial arts. The company has slated a March 5, 2021 release.

First released in 1992, Mortal Kombat has sold over 49 million copies, spanning over a dozen canon games and expansions, making it one of the most profitable video game franchises of all time. Mortal Kombat 11 was released in April and has become the most successful launch in franchise history with the game currently the best-selling title of 2019.

Mortal Kombat, which is set to shoot later this year in southern Australia, will be exec produced by Larry Kasanoff, E. Bennett Walsh, Michael Clear and Sean Robins.

The game was previously adapted into a movie in 1995 by director Paul W. S. Anderson that went on to gross an impressive $122 million at the worldwide box office. It was followed by 1997's Mortal Kombat: Annihilation.

Brooks, whose credits also include USA series Necessary Roughness and recent Tiffany Haddish comedy Nobody's Fool, is repped by Artists First and Bloom Hergott.

Asano played Hogun, one of the Warriors Three in Marvel's Thor movies and will be seen in Roland Emmerich's Midway. The actor, who worked with Martin Scorsese in the filmmaker's period drama Silence, will also be seen with Johnny Depp in Minamata. He is repped by CAA, Slush Management, and Sloane Offer.

Stringer is repped by CBM Management.

Exactly. This joint bouta shape up like a CW sitcom. Jax should be older so they can introduce his daughter if they want.

Not for nothing Mechad Brooks isn’t a little guy the n*gga is like 6’3 and already built let him grow some facial hair he’ll look like Jax

and he’s never had a role where he had to be gritty and tough he’s always some nice guy.

Give him chance hopefully he k*lls the role and we can get another black action star

i like dude as an actor,but as brolic Jax?! i dont know bout that one... as usual, Sub-Zero and Scorpion are prolly gonna steal the show anyway. Should of just let the n*gga that did the Youtube series a few years ago do the movie. He had the perfect cast for every character he chose to show.

I think yall might be wrong about Mehcad Brooks, he can pull off Jax for sure but yeah every role I've seen him in he does comes off kinda corny so I get why people are not too excited about him being Jax

foh b.
I don't wanna hear it

Kung Lao is the teacha

yea he's many centuries old because he's a reincarnated descendant of the Great Kung Lao.

white Lotus too

imagine all the martial art styles you see in k*ll Bill without the Pai Mei influence on the DVAS main characters, especially Kiddo.

Liu Kang is the EarthRealm's champion under Shaolin schooling

without Kung Lao, and an active Raiden, and Kano's betrayal of the EarthRealm, Kitana's interceding of the OutWorld's moves and those few key subplots that bring most of the 1st trilogy characters together.. it's just another lukewarm reboot to me.

they need to bring Stryker in the team wit Sonya & Jax for some good comic relief




and not some Channing Tatum lookin a*s doofus.

nah. it's gotta be a wild card-acting chubby nga who's surprisingly nice with the piece.

Stryker had some of the best of all the move set, fatalities, friendships & animalities combined imo.
