New names confirmed in Mortal Kombat: Rebirth

 
While the new game of Mortal Kombat is not released, Warner continues to confirm more names to the web-series Mortal Kombat: Rebirth. The reinvention of MK began with a video test, which the director wanted to show that Warner was possible to make a new movie in style.

The director did not get the movie, but Jeri Ryan has already secured as Sonya Blade in the series. Now, Warner confirms Michael Jai White back in the role of Jax, and the relatively unknown Darren Shahlavi as Kano. Shahlavi figured as a Persian in 300 and as a member of SWAT in Watchmen. His biggest role was highlighted as the villain Twister boxer in Ip Man 2. At least, it is guaranteed that he knows how to fight.

Filming has already started in Vancouver. Missing only the names of Sub-Zero and Scorpion. It is likely that the same actor who did the undead back in Rebirth.
The first season of nine episodes, will air on April 19th, same time of the launch of the new game.

  2. Films made from games rarely seem to be any good, I wonder if the same will apply to a TV series.

  13. I freaking love Darren Shahlavi! He is perfect as Kane, but for some reason I think he would make just as perfect Quan Chi.
