New Mortal Kombat Movie Finds Its Sub-Zero

New Mortal Kombat Movie Finds Its Sub-Zero

Saw and Aquaman director James Wan is set to produce, with Simon McQuoid (known for commercial work with PlayStation, Halo, and Range Rover) set to direct, after years of the film being in development hell.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Joe Taslim from The Raid will be playing Sub-Zero. Joe, an alum of Indonesia's national Judo team, also has some acting credits to his name.

Back in early May we started to hear rumblings of a new Mortal Kombat movie beginning preparation for filming, now recent news has surfaced regarding who is to play as Sub-Zero.

Fans of the series recognize Sub-Zero as an iconic character known for his ice theme and enmity with his nemesis, Scorpion. Greg Russo wrote the latest version of the screenplay.

Meghan Markle delighted fans last week when she made an unannounced trip to Wimbledon to watch her friend Serena Williams play. The Sun has reported that the Duchess of Sussex is looking at adopting a rescue dog, to add to the two they already have.

If anything, Taslim is more than equipped to don the cowl of Sub-Zero. The character has been at odds with Scorpion, the popular Mortal Kombat character who is hellbent on revenge for the death of his family.

The Mortal Kombat movie reboot will film in Australia later this year on a production budget of £38 million. The 1995 film from director Paul W.S. Anderson focused on heroes Liu Kang, Sonya Blade, and Johnny Cage as they fight for Earthrealm against Shang Tsung and his fighters.

It appears that we can now put a face to the coolest (heh) Kombatant in the upcoming 2021 Mortal Kombat movie reboot. James Wan is producing under his Atomic Monster banner, with Todd Garner also producing, while Larry Kasanoff, E. Bennett Walsh, Michael Clear and Sean Robins serve as executive producers. The franchise features more than a dozen titles, including both the original series and spinoff games, and just this year launched "Mortal Kombat 11", which THR says "has become the most successful launch in franchise's history".
