Pre-production continues on New Line’s incoming sequel to its surprisingly well-received adaptation Mortal Kombat — The sequel to the 2021 movie is currently in the casting process, with recent reports suggesting Tati Gabrielle is in final talks to pick up the mantle of the Edenian assassin, Jade.

TV and fantasy fans will recognize Gabrielle from her recurring roles in various TV series. Gabrielle played Prudence of The Weird Sisters in Netflix’ The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina, as well as librarian Marienne Bellamy in the acclaimed psychological thriller series You. For video game fans, Gabrielle may be most recognizable from her turn as the villainous mercenary Jo Braddock, who made life difficult for Tom Holland and Mark Wahlberg in Sony Pictures’ Uncharted.

Gabrielle is a great fit for Jade, who made her debut in 1993’s Mortal Kombat II as a hidden character, before becoming a roster mainstay. One of the most popular of the kult kharacters, Jade is typified by her love and loyalty of Princess Kitana, whom she is charged with bodyguarding, and utilizes a mythic Bojutsu staff and boomerang in battle. A master of stealth and assassination, Jade is able to move swiftly in the shadows, practically unseen, before striking with deadly efficiency.

Mortal Kombat 2 is expected to commence shooting this summer. Seeing somewhat more recognizable names such as Gabrielle and Karl Urban show up in casting is perhaps a testament to the original film’s financial success, clearly allowing New Line to throw a little more cash at this sequel and take a few more gambles on its theatrical success.

Mortal Kombat 2 is not to be confused with Mortal Kombat II. Nor is it the sequel to upcoming video game Mortal Kombat 1, nor the original 1995 Mortal Kombat movie.
