Production has begun again on the “Mortal Kombat” sequel with actor Karl Urban today posting an Instagram photo of himself alongside several other cast members outside film set trailers along with the caption: “We’re back baby! MK 2. Let’s go!! Love this cast.”

Filming on this follow-up to 2021’s “Mortal Kombat” game-to-film adaptation is taking place in Queensland, Australia with New Line Cinema and Warner Bros. Pictures backing the project.

The project began shooting back in late June but was halted after just a few days due to the actor’s strike. Now it’s back to work with shooting getting underway just days after the strike was lifted.

Simon McQuoid directs the new film from a screenplay written by “Moon Knight” head writer Jeremy Slater. Almost all the main cast from the first film are back, including scene-stealer Josh Lawson as Kano despite his apparent on-screen death.

Also back are Hiroyuki Sanada as Hanzo Hasashi/Scorpion, Joe Taslim as Bi-Han/Sub-Zero, Lewis Tan as Cole Young, Jessica McNamee as Sonya Blade, Tadanobu Asano as Lord Raiden, Mehcad Brooks as Jax, Ludi Lin as Liu Kang, Max Huang as Kung Lao, and Chin Han as Shang Tsung.

They will be joined by Urban as Johnny Cage, Adeline Rudolph as Kitana, Tati Gabrielle as Jade, CJ. Bloomfield as Baraka, Martyn Ford as Emperor Shao Kahn, Damon Herriman as Quan Chi, Desmond Chiam as Edenian King Jerrod and Ana Thu Nguyen as Queen Sindel.

James Wan, Michael Clear, Todd Garner, and E. Bennet Walsh produce.
