Uncharted actor Tati Gabrielle is slated to join Mortal Kombat 2 as Jade


Another big name seems to be gearing up to join the cast of mortal kombat 2this time Tati Gabrielle, who is supposed to play Jade.

this comes from the hollywood reporter, who said that Gabrielle is currently in “final negotiations” to join the cast of the 2021 Mortal Kombat sequel. Apparently, she’s signing on to play Jade, an assassin and friend of Kitana’s, who was absent from the first film. . Jade also joined the series in the second Mortal Kombat game, as well as Kitana, so it’s possible the latter will make her debut in the sequel as well.

Gabrielle is probably best known for Netflix’s Chilling Adventures of Sabrina, but she’s also starred in The Owl House, You, and last year’s film adaptation of Uncharted, making it her second appearance in a video game-turned-film. She’s not the only newcomer to the Mortal Kombat movies, as it was reported earlier this month that Dredd and The Boys actor Karl Urban would be joining Mortal Kombat 2 as the iconic Johnny Cage.

In fact, Cage was teased at the end of Mortal Kombat in a post-credits scene, since every big movie has to have one these days, so news about the character’s casting isn’t particularly surprising.

The sequel film will apparently be directed by Simon McQuoid, who also directed the 2021 film. Jeremy Slate (Moon Knight, The Umbrella Academy) is penning the script and the film is being produced by Atomic Monster’s James Wan, Broken Road Productions’ Todd Garner, Simon McQuoid and E. Bennett Walsh.

At the moment, Mortal Kombat doesn’t have a specific release date or even a release window, so who knows when we’ll get to see these two in action. But obviously, as casting progresses, things are still early days, and it’s quite possible that the current writers’ strike is affecting development, so don’t expect it to be right around the corner.

Netherrealm Studios also recently revealed that it’s rebooting the games with the newly announced Mortal Kombat 1 (yes, it’s called that on purpose).
