Joe Taslim Photos, News and Videos

Mortal Kombat

Joe Taslim will star as Sub-Zero in the upcoming Mortal Kombat movie reboot. Taslim has a solid action pedigree to back up his casting, parlaying his previous experience on the Indonesian national Judo team into a role in 2011 cult favorite martial arts movie "The Raid" (also known as "The Raid: Redemption"). Now, we're curious about two things: will this new movie version of Sub-Zero be featured with the faceguard or not, and who will his archrival Scorpion be portrayed by? As for the story, the script is being penned by Greg Russo, and is reportedly going to follow a Philadelphia boxer who enters the Mortal Kombat tournament, which determines the fate of the world.

James Wan has made a name for himself with the Saw franchise, original horror series like The Conjuring and Insidious, and more recently, his take on DC Comics' Aquaman.

The Mortal Kombat movie reboot will film in Australia later this year on a production budget of £38 million. He also is well-versed in a variety of other styles, including pencak silat, wushu, and taekwondo, so in a way he would fit the role of the iconic Mortal Kombat character. Larry Kasanoff, E. Bennett Walsh, Michael Clear, and Sean Robins will executive produce.

The video game has been turned into a movie in 1995 by Paul W.S. Anderson. Taslim is best known for his work and appearances in Fast and Furious 6 and The Raid.

If you were wondering if this Mortal Kombat movie would be a continuation of the last one that was released (Mortal Kombat Annihilation released in 1997) then I can tell you that its not.

Developer NetherRealm Studios released the latest entry in the video game series, Mortal Kombat 11, for PlayStation 4, PC, Nintendo Switch, and Xbox One in April.
