Mortal Kombat Co-Creator Tweets Kenshi Fantasy Casting

11/01/2014 :: Posted at 07:19 PM by Mick-Lucifer
Ed Boon Kenshi Casting Call a New Hint for Mortal Kombat X?

Universal Pictures' 2013 martial arts fantasy 47 Ronin may have come and gone with devastatingly little fanfare -- but it seems its samurai star Keanu Reeves has caught the eye of Ed Boon. The Mortal Kombat franchise co-creator tweeted his fantasy kombat kasting, endorsing the actor as a "great" option for Kenshi.


"You know who would be great to play as Kenshi in an 3rd Mortal Kombat movie?..." - @noobde

This hasn't been the only Kenshi reference coming from the Mortal Kombat X Creative Director's feed, of late.

A behind-the-scenes photo from the motion capture studio seemed to point a fairly blatant, telekinetic finger in the direction of Kenshi's return inclusion. We'd comfortably hazard a guess now is as good time as any to read double meaning into Boon's tweets: a November reveal - a reasonable possibility.

Much as a sword-wielding, samurai-fighting Keanu Reeves might be an MKX clue of convenience -- the casting suggestion isn't without its merit! It was downright impossible to escape Keanu/Kenshi fan casting as early as 2003, thanks largely to the global release of trilogy finale: The Matrix Revolutions.

A bloodied, blindfolded Reeves [pictured right] drew instant comparisons to 2002 Deadly Alliance newcomer: "Blind" Kenshi. He'd even developed a Wi-Fi pseudo telekinesis to support the coincidence!

We won't make too much of Boon's intended endorsement, but with Warner Brothers announcing expansions that include a new live-action Mortal Kombat webseries - the prospects of a feature film are ready for fresh discussion.

Of course, you know what else Warner Brothers owns, don't you? The Matrix trilogy. A guest character as belated celebration for the 15th anniversary of the first film, perhaps?...
