Mortal Kombat 2 Faces Delay as Actors Strike Looms


Filming for Mortal Kombat 2 is facing a significant delay due to the impending SAG-AFTRA actors strike, according to recent reports from Variety.

The movie features returning cast members such as Lewis Tan, Jessica McNamee, and Tadanobu Asano, reprising their roles from the popular video game series. While filming for the sequel began in June, no official release date has been announced yet.

Mortal Kombat 2 Faces Delay as Actors Strike Looms

The looming SAG-AFTRA actors strike is expected to be confirmed today, which means production on Mortal Kombat 2 in Australia is likely to come to a halt. This strike will impact numerous film and television productions involving actors who are part of the SAG-AFTRA guild.

Actors will be prohibited from participating in press promotions for their projects, making it unlikely that the cast of Mortal Kombat 2 will be able to discuss the film in the near future.

With no fixed release date in place, Mortal Kombat 2 could face significant delays depending on the duration of the actors strike. Since filming only began in June, there are still numerous scenes left to be shot for the video game adaptation.

This news may disappoint fans eagerly anticipating the on-screen portrayal of Johnny Cage by The Boys star Karl Urban.

The exact duration of the actors strike remains uncertain, and it is unclear when production on Mortal Kombat 2 will resume. However, it is not the only project affected by the strike.

Both Gladiator 2 and a new Alien TV series will also encounter production challenges due to the strike. Given the imminent nature of the strike, it may take a considerable amount of time before Mortal Kombat 2 can resume filming.
