The character breakdowns for the upcoming Mortal Kombat movie have finally made their way online and it looks like the documents shed some light on the new and returning characters in Warner Brother's new Mortal Kombat reboot.
That Hashtag Show has just recently managed to get its hands on the character breakdowns for the Warner Brother's upcoming reboot of Mortal Kombat, and it looks like we'll be getting a number of established characters like Liu Kang, Johnny Cage, Sonya Blade, as well as a series of new characters too.
The character breakdown has descriptions for Cole Turner, Kano, Sonya Blade, Lord Raiden, Mileena, Jackson Bridges, Liu Kang, Kung Lao, Shang Tsung, Drahmin, Kabal, Nitara, Reiko, The Overseer, Emily, Sophia, and Jess.
Check out the descriptions down below here:

Supporting Lead Male. 30s. The large, rugged Australian ex-special forces turned merc-for-hire. He is arrogant and impetuous but a tremendous fighter.

Based on the character breakdowns it looks like Warner Brothers and New Line are making a few significant changes to the reboot. While the original Mortal Kombat live-action movie focused on tournament games, it looks like the story of the reboot is going to focus on a new character named Cole Turner, a widowed boxer who's struggling to take care of his young daughter. The film also includes Coles mother-in-law, sister-in-law, and daughter, characters that may provide some familial conflict for the upcoming Mortal Kombat reboot.
The Mortal Kombat reboot doesn't have a release date just yet, but we'll update everyone as soon as we get word.
