Back in 2016, Megan Fox revealed she wanted to play Kitana in a Mortal Kombat movie. That said, it sounds like she will not be playing the Edenian princess in upcoming 2021 reboot. At the moment of publishing, the actress playing Kitana has not been revealed, but again, it won’t be Megan Fox. According to producer on the reboot, Todd Garner, the movie made sure to only cast acting talent that can actually fight. In other words, if you were worried the movie was planning on casting a big celebrity or two just to get some of that sweet starpower, well, unless that a-list celebrity can fight that won’t be happening.
As for Megan Fox, when a Mortal Kombat fan expressed interest in seeing the Tennessee born actress play the franchise’s most well known female character, Garner suggested she couldn’t have been cast in the role since her fighting skills wouldn’t be up to snuff. Now, I have no clue what kinda fighting skills Megan Fox possesses — I do know she’s a wonderful actress — but apparently whatever fighting chops she does have aren’t good enough.
