Nathan Drake & Johnny Cage One In The Same?

Not Linden Ashby, who played Johnny Cage in the 1995 Mortal Kombat film. No, the guy in the viral Mortal Kombat film that recently popped up online.

The actor who was Johnny Cage in the viral clip is Matt Mullins. He's not only an actor, but an accomplished martial artist. He's a black belt in shorei-ryu karate. For the past ten years, Mullins has been performing "Xtreme Martial Arts", which he describes as a more visual style of the sport.

i never thought id see the day when id be interested in seeing a mortal kombat movie but this film might be it

Ares84PS33053d ago

I really loved that movie. I still think it's the best game to movie adaptation.

The_Devil_Hunter3053d ago

Totally agree to that man, that movie is hands down the best game movie out there, I enjoy it even as of today.

Prince of Persia is the best film based on a game

""I have been doing mocap for the last 10 years and have worked on tons of different games," adds Mullins. Like? Like the first Uncharted. He did all the running, jumping, shooting, punching and climbing for Uncharted protagonist Nathan Drake."

"That's right, Nathan Drake via Johnny Cage is fighting Baraka in this viral clip. And he gets his head lopped off."

Ah yes, the prime example of flawless, relevant, important journalism that is contributed by kotaku. /s

I know this is not going to happen, but imagine an action flick with Michael Jai White, Scott Adkins, Tony Jaa, Jean Claude Vann Damme (yes, THE 49 year old JCVD. You know, the one that made Universal Soldier 3. I dont care what you think, that movie was hot and JCVD still got it.), Donnie Yen, and Jason Statham. Fuck it, add the two french guys from District B13 and we got one hell of a movie!

It's always been my dream to do motion capture . . . too bad I'm Jewish.


na2ru13053d ago

Jews are among the most successful. Why can't you do mocap

DA_SHREDDER3053d ago

This movie has Win written all over it. Holy cow.

Double Toasted3053d ago

Too bad most people are missing out on a awesome interview...

pody3053d ago (Edited 3053d ago )

Yeah, awesome! I wanted some more info. Thanks!

I really dislike Baraka in this. They totally ruined him. When did Baraka become black, dreadlocks, rings and surgical lumps in his face? And what's with the animalistic behaviour?

Loved Scorpion, Reptile and Sub-Zero though!

^No it doesn't, it isn't the 90s anymore

this will do no more then 4 to 8 Mil first week at

the box office. Nobody cares about MK in 2010, nobody

unknownhero11233053d ago

seeing as there were several articles about the movie teaser and the trailer to the game itself, I say you are wrong.

rezzah3053d ago

wow this article is stupid.
