James Wan’s Mortal Kombat movie has made a significant step by securing the services of Indonesian star, Joe Taslim. The actor and accomplished martial artist will portray the character of Sub-Zero in the film.
Taslim is a fine addition to the film, which is being produced by Wan and directed by veteran commercial director, Simon McQuoid. Mortal Kombat is arguably one of the world’s most iconic video games, so popular that it spun-off two films in the 90s.
Fans of the game will no doubt be looking forward to this new iteration, which should begin production fairly soon in Australia. Taslim has impressively built on his acting credentials following his breakout performance in sleeper-hit The Raid.
Thus far he’s amassed quite an impressive portfolio with acting roles in Fast & Furious 6 and Star Trek Beyond.
