Mortal Kombat Reboot Character Details Emerge

Crack your knuckles and choose your best fighter, because we're about to head back into the combat action of the Mortal Kombat franchise. Producer James Wan and New Line Cinema were previously closing in on a director for their Mortal Kombat reboot film, and now we have more details about the cast of the film thanks to the arrival of official character breakdowns.

According to The Hashtag Show, the new film is set to star a new character named Cole Turner as its lead. Cole is a struggling boxer from Philadelphia who gets more than he bargained for when he signs up to take part in a martial arts tournament across dimensions.
