Ah cheers. He's an actor too which is why I wasn't sure if he was double billed for it with the driving or not.

Week 11 Ends...

As Week 11 comes to a close and Week 12 is nearer, we did witness the cast and crew eat a Thanksgiving meal. This is very special for fans because many of the cast and crew members are not from America. However, one American who was not feasting with them was Mehcad Brooks who took to Instagram to post a politically-motivated anti-Thanksgiving triad, asking fans to donate to several organizations who provide food for Indigenous people (formerly referred to as "Native Americans") along with many factoids about the continued struggles of these people (I guess he's never heard of food stamps or government-sanctioned reservations).

Todd Gardner gave a speech before the meal, explaining to his many foreign guests the watered-down version to the meaning of Thanksgiving (that it exists to give thanks) before thanking the cast and crew and acknowledging how happy everyone has been on set.

Judging by her age it seems she might be playing Emily? (Cole’s daughter)

Very probable, she's the ONLY MAIN under 18 character...

BTW - I missed all of yesterday... did I miss anything anyone posted? So far Namee posted training videos and Mehcad sucking in helium and bragging about his role in MK.

Week 12 Updates:

As we begin Week 12, we continue to see training videos, this time pushups from Jessica Namee and Mehcad sucks helium and gives us his opinion on this movie. TBH if you miss it, you're not missing anything. He appears stoned out of his mind, says there are explosions and that this is the first movie he's been the most manly. (If you check out the gossip sites on him you'll see he was speculated to be gay for years until photos surfaced with him with a woman).

Leo Santangelo posted a weird video of him basically saying he lives out of his car and freshening up for his next gig. Let's hope this was his choice (he called himself a gypsy) as many martial artists experienced homeless in their lives.

However, the most major announcement to come (and thanks to the guys above who reported it) has been the casting of a 12 year old Asian-Australian to play an unannounced (at least from what little we get in the freebie article) role. Her name is Matilda Kimber and she'd been keeping this secret for a while, likely responding to the June/July casting call for major speaking roles.An official announcement is here:

https://www.adelaidenow.com.au/search-results?q=kombat

She is speculated to play the role of Emily, who will be the daughter of Lewis Tan's character, Cole (It's not Turner anymore, at least in the 11/18 draft).

Week 12 Updates Continue...

We just learned it is Todd Gardner (producer)'s birthday today.

Mehcad Brooks says this is his last week of filming...

So I am suspecting the final fight started filming about last week and into the end of the production...

I may miss the actual photo so I took a screenshot ... but Lewis Tan just posted a photo of him wearing a New MK hat! Eeek, so excited!

Joe Taslim's daughter is seen wearing another hat sideways or backwards and on the reverse side it showed a smaller MK dragon with the words MK written out. This could also be the panavision hat Joe wears alot so nevertheless it's all interesting merch.

Week 12 Updates:

Elissa and Max are seen in a car together. Sounds like maybe they are either just being drove or going home. Time will tell when they post again.

Wouldn't that be possible work with Scorpion given Hiroyuki hasn't been seen on set or in Australia yet?

For those not in the know:

James Wan has been noticably absent from Mortal Kombat as he left to begin production on his horror film, Malignant. It appears Malignant is coming to a wrap about the same time as Mortal Kombat.

Hopefully Wan has kept tabs with this project. So much of it already reeks of Wan. Apparently he served as producer during development and preproduction, helping to select the director and approving cast and crew.
