Multiple Asian actors have been cast for the highly anticipated reboot of “Mortal Kombat.”
The upcoming film, based on the popular fighting game franchise of the same name, will be produced by “Aquaman” and “Furious 7” director James Wan. The film will be helmed by Simon McQuoid, who will make his directorial debut.
The roster of fighters and the actors who will play them have officially been announced by Warner Bros. and New Line Cinema.
“The Raid” star Joe Taslim, who appeared in “Fast & Furious 6” and “Star Trek Beyond,” was the first actor to be cast in the film back in July. He will be playing Sub-Zero.
On Tuesday, it was announced that “Thor: Ragnarok” actor Tadanobu Asano will be playing Raiden, Max Huang will take on the role of Kung Lao, Ng Chin Han will be Shang Tsung, and Hiroyuki Sanada will play Scorpion.
Many people might not know this, but despite our large and loyal following which we are immensely grateful for, NextShark is still a small bootstrapped startup that runs on no outside funding or loans.
Everything you see today is built on the backs of warriors who have sacrificed opportunities to help give Asians all over the world a bigger voice.
However, we still face many trials and tribulations in our industry, from figuring out the most sustainable business model for independent media companies to facing the current COVID-19 pandemic decimating advertising revenues across the board.
We hope you consider making a contribution so we can continue to provide you with quality content that informs, educates and inspires the Asian community.
Even a $1 contribution goes a long way. Thank you for everyone’s support. We love you all and can’t appreciate you guys enough.
