Michael Jai White Confirms Movie Role Return - No Legacy

12/04/2012 :: Posted at 11:26 PM by Mick-Lucifer
Legacy Star Not Returning to Series 2 - Will Return as Jax in Feature Film!

In the latest Mortal Kombat: Legacy casting twist, Michael Jai White has confirmed he will not be returning to the digitally released series -- but will reprise his role for the upcoming feature film!

White made an immediate impact headlining the series as man of action, Jackson "Jax" Briggs. Along with Legacy co-stars; Jeri Ryan, Ian Anthony Dale and Matt Mullins -- he was an early adopter for the series, appearing in Kevin Tancharoen's buzz building showreel: Rebirth. He featured prominently in the record breaking first two episodes, battling Darren Shahlavi's Kano.

Updates regarding the feature release have been scarce, but a budget of $40-50 million was recently revealed by producer, Lance Sloan. Jax was confirmed for a role in script teasers posted in June, with a showdown against Kabal an apparent feature.

The second series of Legacy has undergone significant casting shake-ups, shedding several featured actors from the first run, in exchange for some surprising familiar names. Cary-Hiroyuki Tagawa was part of a major announcement yesterday from Warner Brothers; returning to the role he made famous two decades ago in the first feature film - Shang Tsung. Mark Dacascos (Kung Lao) and Casper Van Dien (Johnny Cage) added further name recognition. Filming began November 28, for a Second Quarter 2013 release.

Special thanks to MKOmmunity user Sweetre15 not only for forwarding the tweet, but also coaxing it out of the star! News from the series is coming fast and thick. Stay up-to-date and discuss all the buzz in the Media & Merchandise forum!
