Matilda Kimber, the young kid who will play an unannounced major kid character aka likely Emily , has released story archives of her own MK coverage. It does appear there are more locations that I did ignore thinking they were just trips (the winery is one). It's worth seeing - I'm not sure if she is dressed in character when she mentions the look (she's dressed in wintery emo ghetto clothes) but you can see her journey.

Finished a long time ago?

Be interesting to see his role then given half the cast weren't in Adelaide or finished training until 7 weeks ago, and there were no images, no mentions of him while he was in Australia..

I wanted to mention a month ago I asked Russo about Scorpion and he said his story will be done justice, it seems they are keeping it very secret or Scorpions role is very small, there have been zero updates about him. I feel like they will use Hiroyuki Sanada for the human Hanzo scenes and a double for the Scorpion fighting scenes where you can't see his face with the mask so he doesn't really have to be on set much time.

Rest assured- there are a lot of deviations from the MK universe as we know it. Do I agree with them? As a MK fan, absolutely not. But I wasn't the one hired to write this film. And let's face it, there are so many inconsistencies and plot holes in the MK universe, that, bottom line, they just need to pick one story and stick to it. If this film fails, we are back to square one. I'm tired of all of these square ones myself.

Joe Taslim shared a photo with Scorpion (who I swore already left) in it posing with a boy, who also photographed Joe. I'm not sure if it's Joe's son or someone else.

SiSi shared a couple videos as did Tan.

There have been a lot of photos released today from many people. Tara Macken said this was her last training session with SiFu today.

We are nearing the end...

That's Hiero Joe Taslim who is Joe's son.

Could tell Scorpion would be back. If they are finishing up filming over the next 7 days or so, you'd get principal cast back for additional shots, new scenes (script would be evolving during filming very likely even if minimal elements), as well as re-shooting.

Easier to think while everything is set up "We need to do this again", or "maybe we should try this", rather than pack everything up and do re-shoots 3 months later when the set is dismantled, the cast and MUA / Stunts / Fx team are on another site, etc.

You are going off a script from 13 months ago.. there's a good chance that even if 90% is the same, that last 10% could be some impactful differences

No, no chance of any major changes that soon to preproduction. Prepro started at the beginning of the year and then casting followed.

When they are done filming they usually go home. We'll see how this cast/crew does. For this production, where one major spoiler could break or make the film, they could be doing what they do with reality TV stars who get eliminated and make them stay on set until the whole production wraps.

Week 12 Updates:

Joe Taslim reports he has one more week left.

SiSi reports this was her last day of filming but she will remain in SA (and she is driving, presumably from the beach hotel they were staying at. No word if production occurs on a beach, it wasn't in the 11/18 script).

Josh Lawson is busy editing one of his projects. His status is unknown.

Nothing new from Lewis Tan.

Nothing new from Ludi Lin.

Chin Han took a selfie at the beach yesterday.

Max Huang had a photo taken while he was training at night.

Tara Macken has went home.

No other updates on anyone else including Mehcad (who appears to be still at the beach location) and Namee other than she's honoring something to do with her country.

Nothing new from Raiden.

Nothing new from Matilda.

Any one else find it suspicious that these two photos were released from SiSi at the same time? Could this be the direction for Mileena's costume in this film?
