We all know Monolith Productions have been working for an unnannounced project for almost two years and it seem quite logical this will be Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor 2, but we have hadn’t an official announcement yet. Today we found a clue which made us believe that the sequel of the critical acclaimed game is nearly to be announced. On famous stunt Lauren Mary Kim‘s Curriculum Vitae we found Shadow of Mordor 2 in the last line of Motion Capture section. Kim is a stunt worked for numerous AAA film project like Fast & Furious 7, Transformers 4, Suicide Squad and Daredevil (tv-series). She also worked for various videogames CGI trailer, like Bioshock Infinite, Batman Arkham Knight, Assassin’s Cred Unity, God of War Ascension, the upcoming Mafia III and… Shadow of Mordor 2. Looking at her physical aspect and stunt abilities she could play the Lithariel role.
The line specifically states “Shadows of Mordor 2 – Stunts/Acting – Blur” in Motion Capture section. Blur Studio is one of the most famous and most valued CGI team for movie projects (Deadpool) and many videogames trailer in CGI (Batman Arkham Knight, Dishonored 2, The Division, etc.), so if Lauren Mary Kim really worked for Shadow of Mordor 2, it’s quite sure Warner Bros. will show us a CGI announcement trailer, maybe during E3 2016. Here is Kim’s MoCap Reel 2015.
Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor is an open world action-adventure game developed by Monolith Productions and published by Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment.
