Hollywood has a history of terrible video game movies, but that hasn\u2019t stopped them from trying time and time again. This time, New Line is pushing forward with their Mortal Kombat reboot, and they\u2019ve found someone to play the ice ninja Sub-Zero.\r\n\r\nAccording to The Hollywood Reporter, the film has cast Joe Taslim (The Raid) to play Sub-Zero. If you\u2019ve played the game, you know that Sub-Zero famously has a brother from the same clan with the same powers. It\u2019s unclear which character Taslim is playing in Mortal Kombat, but I have no doubt they\u2019re going to be making good use of his martial arts skills.\r\n\r\nTaslim is the one playing the cop in this scene:\r\n\r\nhttps:\/\/www.youtube.com\/watch?v=RP9Npihq1KQ\r\n\r\nSo far, Taslim is the first person to be officially cast in the film, so I have a feeling Sub-Zero is going to be the protagonist. Then again, Liu Kang has always been considered as the hero of this franchise, so I bet they still want him in this movie. With Sub-Zero though, it\u2019s a given that his rival Scorpion has to be in the movie as well.\r\n\r\nMortal Kombat is being produced by James Wan (Aquaman) and is being directed by veteran commercial director Simon McQuioid. We don\u2019t have an official plot for the film yet, but we do know that the script comes from Greg Russo. It\u2019s likely there could still be some changes as the pre-production process goes.\r\n\r\nWe don\u2019t know when New Line is ready to officially unveil their Mortal Kombat movie, but hopefully we get something before the year ends. My guess is SDCC 2019 later this month.
