James Wan is still keen on redoing Mortal Kombat and now a new report at That Hashtag Show indicates Joel Edgerton is being sought for Australian ex-special forces turned mercenary Kano.
Australian director Simon McQuoid helms and Greg Russo pens the new take with Russo taking to Twitter this week to confirm he recently finished his latest draft of the script.
However, he also indicates Warners still has yet to give the project a green light and a meeting with the studio shortly will determine that. The hope appears to be to begin shooting in Australia later this year.
Apparently this movie will not be as dark as the web series which featured Michael Jai White.
