Talk on Warner Brothers long-in-development Mortal Kombat reboot movie has been minimal at best. James Wan (Aquaman, Insidious) came aboard to produce the project under his Atomic Monster banner. He brought in first time feature film director Simon Mcquoid to helm the project after Mortal Kombat: Legacy director Kevin Tancharoen (Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D) left the film over creative differences in 2013.
Now our friends over at That Hashtag Show has revealed new plot details on the project including a slew of c character breakdowns. The film will focus on a brand new character Cole Turner who is thrust into this fantastical tournament. However, the breakdown mentions a few interesting tidbits. Like the studio is looking to make Lord Raiden a teenager. As well they have no mention of Johnny Cage, Scorpion or Sub-Zero. Fan-favorites Liu Kang and Jax will be making an appearance.
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.
Female. 12. Cole’s scrappy, determined, and wise-beyond-her-years daughter.
Female. 60s. Cole’s understanding, discerning mother-in-law who houses Emily and is her primary guardian.
Female. 30-35. Cole’s judgmental sister-in-law, who believes Cole to be a selfish, bad father. She lives with Sophia and Emily.
Supporting Lead Male. 30s. The large, rugged Australian ex-special forces turned merc-for-hire. He is arrogant and impetuous but a tremendous fighter.
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.
Male. 14. The immortal thunder God and protector of the Earth realm, who leads and trains the Earth team in the Underworld.
