- Cameron Diaz was originally set to play Sonya Blade, but she broke her wrist before filming and was replaced by Bridgette Wilson.
Ed Boon, co-creator of the original video game "Mortal Kombat," starred as the voice of Scorpion.
The premise of the film is greatly influenced by Enter the Dragon (1973). Note the three fighters, the transition by way of old style boat to an island, the final battle with the old man.
When the chameleon creature takes over the body of an Outworld statue and rises as a green ninja, you can hear, very quietly, a voice say "Reptile". This is the voice of Shao Kahn, and was sampled directly from Mortal Kombat II (1993) (VG).
Scripted but not filmed was a scene where Shang Tsung allowed the "Kombatants" a night to bury Art Lean and mourn his loss. They buried him the Garden of Statues, underneath the statue of Kung Lao; this is the only place where Kung Lao appears in any of the movies. Also scripted but not filmed was a battle between Sonya Blade (who wins, naturally) and Jade, another of Shang Tsung's bodyguards.
