It seems like the filmmakers on the upcoming Mortal Kombat movie have a bit of a sense of humor and are adding a character some might not be expecting to see in a feature film.
HN Entertainment has got our hands on some audition sides for the role of Jarek, a member of the crime syndicate Black Dragon, which is led by Kano.
The scene also happens to involve Kano, which could confirm ThatHashtagShow’s information that he would be appearing in the film.
There could be considered spoilers for the movie in here if this scene is directly taken from the script, so you’ve been warned.
It looks like the Jarek part might be more of a cameo but it is still kind of neat that they’re willing to add a character that isn’t particularly liked.
Anyways, here is the scene and Kano seems to be transporting a group of characters, possibly the heroes. Other than possibly Ludi Lin’s Liu Kang, I’m not sure who else could be part of the group.
KANO: There he is now.
JAREK: Kano, you prick. How have you’ve been?
KANO: Jarek, longtime fuckwit.
JAREK: You didn’t tell me you were picking up tourists on the way.
ROLE #3: I just noticed they have matching tattoos, how adorable.
JAREK: Temple is to the north best to go on foot.
ROLE #3: Where are you taking us?
JAREK: Raiden’s temple.
ROLE #3: You said that was north, we’re walking south.
KANO: The fuck is this? You’re setting me up. We’re Black Dragon, mate.
JAREK: I’m Red Dragon now. You got a bounty on your head Kano.
ROLE #3: Whoa, hang on. We want to kill this asshole as much as you do. Just let us walk.
JAREK: Kill ’em all.
[Shocked] Who the fuck are you supposed to be Bruce Lee?
The confirmed inclusion of Black Dragon would also support that assassin character Kabal will indeed be in the film as previously suggested character breakdowns from ThatHashtagShow.
KABAL: Male. 25-35. An evil assassin of Outworld, he is outfitted in a black armored vest and trench coat. His entire head is covered by a scarred black respirator. His signature weapons are two razor-sharp hook swords.
The cast reportedly for Mortal Kombat looks like this.
- Ludi Lin as Liu Kang
- Joe Taslim as Sub-Zero
- Tadanobu Asano as Raiden
- Mehcad Brooks as Jax
- Sisi Stringer as Melina
According to ThatHashtagShow, the studio is keen on casting Joel Edgerton (Warrior, Zero Dark Thirty) in the role of Kano.
Filming will be mainly taking place at Adelaide Studios in South Australia.
Warner Bros. has given Mortal Kombat a release date of March 5th, 2021.
