Jeri Ryan (Star Trek: Voyager, Dracula 2000) took to Twitter confirming that she’ll be reprising her role (from the short film “Mortal Kombat: Rebirth”) of Sonya in Warner Premiere’s Mortal Kombat web series that we first broke the news on Bloody Disgusting January 14.
“Heading to the farmer’s market with the hubs & my girl. Then this evening I head to Vancouver to shoot Mortal Kombat! (NOW it’s official),” she stated, later adding, “just finished reading the whole script for Mortal Kombat. Holy crap… I think u might just love it. Get ready…”
In addition, we were sent the official shooting synopsis: “Shao Kahn and Shang Tsung are obsessed with reigning over various realms (parallel universes) and the winners of Mortal Kombat competitions are granted supreme control over these worlds. The Earthrealm (Earth) is an unconscious participant in this competition and only a few select humans understand the consequences of losing Mortal Kombat and what it will mean to Earth.”
Penned by Tancharoen, Todd Helbing, and Aaron Helbing, star Michael Jai White leads the cast as “Major Jackson ‘Jax’ Briggs. Kevin Tancharoen directs.
