Aquaman co-writer James Wan (Annabelle Comes Home, The Conjuring 3) will produce, while Australian commercial director Simon McQuoid makes his feature-length directorial debut. It's the first piece of casting news to be announced for the flick, which begins production later this year. The Mortal Kombat movie really is moving ahead, and it's already found its Sub-Zero. If his name isn't familiar to you, then you've probably at least seen Taslim on the big screen, as he's appeared in the likes of Star Trek Beyond and Fast & Furious 6.

Sub-Zero was one of the original characters featured in the Midway game, which debuted in 1992 with a story focusing on the monk Liu Kang working to save Earth from an evil sorcerer.

Filmmakers - who include James Wan, serving as a producer this time around - will have plenty of material to work with, considering the game's longevity. He also stars in Cinemax's 1800s-set TV series Warrior.

Pre-production on the MK reboot will begin this month, with cameras set to roll later this year in Adelaide, Australia.

Not much is known about the upcoming Mortal Kombat film, but it should be interesting to see if it'll focus more on the two deadly enemies. He also is well-versed in a variety of other styles, including pencak silat, wushu, and taekwondo, so in a way he would fit the role of the iconic Mortal Kombat character.

Anderson may have been hoping in vain to capitalize on the explosive popularity of the Mortal Kombat video game franchise in the mid-'90s, but with regard to the reboot, the time is definitely right.

"Mortal Kombat" will be the franchise's third live-action adaptation, following 1995's "Mortal Kombat" and "Mortal Kombat: Annihilation" in 1997.
