Facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedintumblrmail

James Wan is producing a new film based on the Mortal Kombat video games with his Atomic Monster production company. Simon Mcquoid is directing from a script by Greg Russo. We last saw the films Mortal Kombat in 1995 and Mortal Kombat: Annihilation in 1997.

It looks like the main character, Cole Turner, is new to Mortal Kombat, but there will be lots of familiar faces. It also seems that Raiden will be a 14 yeard old kid!

The Hashtag Show had these character descriptions:

  • COLE TURNER
    Lead Male. 30s. A brand new character to the MK franchise. Cole is a struggling and widowed boxer who cares more about his young daughter than anything. He is incredibly determined and refuses to quit in the face of fantastical adversity.
  • KANO
    Supporting Lead Male. 30s. The large, rugged Australian ex-special forces turned merc-for-hire. He is arrogant and impetuous but a tremendous fighter.
  • SONYA BLADE
    Supporting Lead Female. 30s. The beautiful, brainy blonde writer who chases the prophecy of Mortal Kombat. She recruits Cole and fights bravely and selflessly for a team she can only be a true part of once she earns a medallion in combat.
  • JIN/LORD RAIDEN
    Male. 14. The immortal thunder God and protector of the Earth realm, who leads and trains the Earth team in the Underworld.
  • MILEENA
    Female. 25-35. A drop dead gorgeous woman that is part of the Outworld side. She wears a sheer gown over thigh-high boots and a revealing one-piece, with a veil that covers her nose and mouth.
  • JACKSON “JAX” BRIDGES
    Male. 30-40. “Jax” is a strapping mercenary/military officer who loses both of his hands in an attack and then joins Sonya and Cole to fight the Outworld.
  • LIU KANG
    Male. 20-35. A fire throwing ninja warrior who is a talented Earth realm champion.
  • KUNG LAO
    Male. 25-35. The mute warrior monk brother of Liu Kang, who yields an all powerful boomerang hat.
  • SHANG TSUNG
    Male. No age specified. The great sorcerer of Outworld, whose presence is a storm cloud of dark energy. His ever-changing roulette of faces unfurls an evil smile.
  • DRAHMIN
    Male. 25-35. An Oni devil mask over his face, his body is composed of twisted sinewy skin, a heavy spiked club replaces one arm.
  • KABAL
    Male. 25-35. An evil assassin of Outworld, he is outfitted in a black armored vest and trench coat. His entire head is covered by a scarred black respirator. His signature weapons are two razor-sharp hook swords.
  • NITARA
    Female. 25-35. A black-haired vampire of Outworld. Two massive leathery batwings protrude from her bare shoulders. Fresh blood drips from her fangs.
  • REIKO
    Male. 25-40. An armor-clad Outworld General with white glowing eyes. He drags a massive war hammer with him.
  • THE OVERSEER
    Male. Late 80’s. The overseer of the clock tower and the training grounds that house the Earth realm warriors, he is laughably old.
