Over two years later and it now looks like the movie is looking for a bit of a speed-up. It is being rumored that Joel Edgerton (Warrior, Bright) is being courted for the role of Kano.

Greg Russo, who is writing the new Mortal Kombat movie, has told fans on Twitter that the film will be definitely R-rated and it will have the one element that the video games are known for...fatalities!

“Since it’s already been stated by other members of the team, I’m gonna put this one to bed. MK WILL be R-Rated and for the first time EVER, FATALITIES will FINALLY be on the big screen (and no I’m not gonna say which ones) You’ll just have to wait for the movie & see!!! ;)”

This is going to sound crazy, but they did say Lewis Tan is in an undisclosed role. Why do I have this very weird feeling/vibe he is going to be announced as Johnny Cage? Who do you all think Tan will be playing?

Maybe John Cena would be up for the role?, would like to see the shortlist of names they have for this part.
