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.

COLE TURNER

SOPHIA

SONYA BLADE

KUNG LAO

Male. 25-35. The mute warrior monk brother of Liu Kang, who yields an all powerful boomerang hat.
