Writer Greg Russo has confirmed via his Twitter that this casting call was confirmed to at one stage in development be true. However, he says that it was an early draft.

If any of this bulls*** remains then the new movie will suck.


____ ____ ____ ____ ____ ____

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

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.

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.

RAIN
Male. 16-21. Disgraced outworld royalty that serves as Mileena's homosexual friend, adopted son, and confidant. He is to dress in flamboyant purple colors - may crossdress.

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

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.

EMILY
Female. 12. Cole’s scrappy, determined, and wise-beyond-her-years daughter.

SOPHIA
Female. 60s. Cole’s understanding, discerning mother-in-law who houses Emily and is her primary guardian.

No Scorpion No Sub-Zero...

Let's hope they didn't go with this. Because as it stands this Cast Breakdown IS The WORST Possible Thing that could have happened to MK.

I'm all for some creative freedom using the MK license, but this just looks awful!

First impressions are everything and this doesn't look like it'd represent MK properly.

How many movies stick with the original draft? This isn't happening.

Also having Mileena but Kitana not being mentioned is a red flag.

This movie will bomb. They need to find a legal way to remove Larry Kasonoff from production.

Imagine the theme song!

"KANO, RAIDEN, LIU KANG, COLE TURNER, COLE TURNER'S 12 YEAR OLD DAUGHTER, COLE TURNER'S DISSAPROVING SISTER IN LAW, SONYA BLADE - MORTAL KOMBAAAAT!!!"

Based on the time lines and children this movie is just an abomination of stupidity and idiotic ideas that basically is the epitome of what ruins game to movie attempts!
