Since the successful launch of Mortal Kombat 11 in April of this year, the fighting game franchise continues to hit new strides as it gets closer to its 27th anniversary.
The same can also be said for New Line Cinema’s reboot of the Paul W.S. Anderson directed 1995 movie — the crew has just cast Joe Taslim for the role of Sub Zero. He is best known for his debut as an actor and martial artist in the hit 2011 film from Indonesia, The Raid.
Produced by James Wan (Aquaman and The Conjuring) it will also be the film debut of commercial director Simon McQuoid. The film is currently set to start shooting later this year in the southern area of Australia.
