Actor Joe Taslim is rumored to be playing in the film Mortal Kombat. The film is an adaptation of a video game that was first released in 1992. Launching The Hollywood Reporter, Joe will play the character Sub Zero, which is one of the original characters from the first Mortal Kombat game. Sub Zero has great martial skills and can control ice.
Joe himself has not confirmed the news. But until this news was revealed, he had time to re-upload three Instagram user stories that discussed the role of Sub Zero by marking his account. “Whoever made this, this is a really cool Sub Zero fanart,” wrote Joe commenting on the fanart he re-uploaded. Last May, Warner Bros. stated Mortal Kombat is scheduled to air on March 5, 2021. The film will be produced by James Wan and directed by Simon McQuoid.
Pre-production of Mortal Kombat has started since last May by visiting KaptenCasino Online, Australia. South Australian Prime Minister Steven Marshall is said to have welcomed the arrival of the film troupe with open arms. Marshall announced on Monday (13/5) that there will be the biggest film-making in the country’s history. The video game Mortal Kombat was made by Midway Games in 1992. The game’s story focuses on the monk Liu Kang who must save the Earth from an evil witch.
The development of the Mortal Kombat game started from the idea of Ed Boon and John Tobias, who had made a game with the star Jean-Claude Van Damme. But in its development, the fighting game turns into a horror-fantasy battle. Previously, the game had been adapted into a film, namely Mortal Kombat (1995) and Mortal Kombat: Annihilation (1997). Each received a lot of harsh criticism, but based on data from Box Office Mojo, the film grossed US $ 122 million and US $ 51 million.
Warner Bros. then bought the assets of Midway Games which went bankrupt in 2009. The giant filmmaker then developed the Mortal Kombat project in 2011. At that time, Kevin Tancharoen was appointed as director, who left the project three years later.
So far, there have been no further leaks about the Mortal Kombat film which is rumored to be full of blood. It is very likely that this film will remain awaited because Mortal Kombat is one of the most famous video games in the world.
