The Raid: Redemption’s Joe Taslim cast as Sub Zero for New Mortal Kombat
A new Mortal Kombat is currently. In the works and we get our first official casting announcement with The Raid Redemption star Joe Taslim playing the ice ninja Sub Zero.
There’s no word tet on which Sub Zero the actor would be playing as according to Mortal Kombat canon, there were two people who went by the monicker. The first one, Bi-Han, was in the first Mortal Kombat and was subsequently killed by Scorpion in between Mortal Kombat 1 and Mortal Kombat 2.
The second Sub Zero, Kuai Liang, has taken over since then. In fact he’s one of the good guys from this year’s Mortal Kombat 11.
The adaptation is being produced by Wan through New Line Cinema, a subsidiary of Warner Bros. The screenplay is written by Greg Russo and marks the feature directorial debut of Simon McQuoid.
