The Mummy gets rebooted

And the details aren’t under wraps! 😉 Okay, that pun was lame, but even though no one could call Brendan Fraser’s The Mummy movies high class entertainment, they were enjoyable and fun (though less so with each sequel.) They also gave us the Scorpion King spinoff and its various sequels and prequels and whatnot, including the latest entry, The Scorpion King 3: Battle for Redemption, which came out earlier this year. So will a reboot trash the once proud Scorpion King franchise? Or will they continue to be pumped out as long as they make money as well. Two universes living as one.

Prometheus writer Jon Spaihts will take care of the script and Sean Daniel will produce. If his name sounds familiar, it’s because he produced the prior The Mummy films. It sounds like they want to make a giant adventure and not a Twilight ripoff, which is good. It’s also good that Universal still has some faith in their monster movie catalog after the recent failure of The Wolfman.
