We’ve mostly stopped posting Asian-Hollywood news now that there is so much of it over the past couple of years, but long-time Cfensi favorite Ludi Lin always has a special place here. He’s been recently cast as Liu Kang in a James Wan-produced Mortal Kombat film adaptation set for a March 5, 2021, release.
I’m not sure how big of a role he’ll have but hopefully at least it’ll show his face to make up for how much toilet water he had to drink in Aquaman.
Full cast announced so far:
- Ludi Lin (Power Rangers) as Liu Kang
- Hiroyuki Sanada (Avengers: Endgame) as Scorpion,
- Ng Chin Han (Ghost in the Shell) as Shang Tsun
- Joe Taslim (Star Trek Beyond) as Sub-Zero
- Jessica McNamee (The Meg) as Sonya Blade
- Josh Lawson (Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues) as Kano
- Mehcad Brooks (Supergirl) as Jax
- Tadanobu Asano (Thor trilogy) as Raiden
- Lewis Tan (Wu Assassins) as an unknown leading character.
- Max Huang (CZ 12) as Kung Lao
The casting is great.
