Yesterday we shared news of a cast list for the upcoming Mortal Kombat movie franchise reboot. People were very quick to point out that major Mortal Kombat characters like Sub-Zero and Johnny Cage were nowhere to be seen. Following the release of that news, producer Todd Garner and writer Greg Russo had the following to say.
Nothing is happening with the movie at this time, so all news is premature. Sorry!— Todd Garner (@Todd_Garner) July 10, 2018
And... DEEP BREATH, everyone. 1) This is NOT the full list of characters. 2) This is BASED off an older version of the script and lastly 3) 全蠍人 & 絶対零度 Forever ;) https://t.co/xN7ROFA4wm— Greg Russo (@WriterRusso) July 10, 2018
Thanks! An insane amount of love & care has already gone into the project. As I guy who used to rule the arcade machine (Kitana all day), it's in VERY good hands. Hopefully we get to make it soon...— Greg Russo (@WriterRusso) July 10, 2018
In other words, there's a lot more going on behind the scenes with the film than we know. More characters will be included, and it appears that the movie is at a standstill for right now. Let's hope things start progressing in the near future.
