We now have a couple of names to add to the growing cast of New Line’s upcoming Mortal Kombat reboot.
According to Variety, Chin Han (The Dark Knight, Captain America: The Winter Soldier) and Hiroyuki Sanada (Avengers: Endgame) have joined the cast as villains Shang Tsung and Scorpion respectively.
New Line continues to ramp up its pre-production on its “Mortal Kombat” reboot, tapping Chin Han to play Shang Tsung and Hiroyuki Sanada to play Scorpion.
Scorpion is a huge fan-favorite and seemed a given, as his icy counterpart Sub-Zero was one of first characters to get cast, with actor Joe Taslim attached to the role.
Yesterday, we learned that Jessica McNamee, Lewis Tan, and Josh Lawson had been cast via the Hollywood Reporter.
Production is set to begin soon in South Australia, and the film has currently been dated for release on March 5, 2021.
