"The Mummy" Reboot in Talks with "Mama" Director

Posted: September 14th, 2013 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
"The Mummy" Reboot in Talks with "Mama" DirectorSubmit Comment
Earlier this year, it was revealed that Len Wiseman (Underworld, Total Recall) was set to direct Universal Pictures' reboot of the "Mummy" franchise. But in July, Wiseman decided to drop out.

Now comes word that the studio is in talks with Andres Muschietti to replace him. Muschietti is best known for directing Universal's horror film "Mama," which turned out to be a surprise hit, grossing $146 million worldwide on a budget of only $15 million.

Plot details are being kept a secret, but the movie has been described as an "action-adventure tentpole with horror elements." The plan is to include completely different characters and for the story to take place in the modern age. The original "Mummy" (1932) and Brendan Fraser's films were all set in the 1920s.

makes you wonder why the man who took Total Recall to the rectory and plowed it after a few sips of wine dropped out of this project

At least this is actual movie related news. All I want to read about is future movies and their progress when I come to this site, nothing else.

Loved the mummy back in the day, was so funny, made me laugh...just great fun, my wife said she wanted to do Rachel Weisz in the second one which I would be ok with if I could watch....an I love jet li but even he couldn't save the third film.

I actually think there fun films, but rather than remake why not do something new?

Dumbest idea. Just do a REALLY good 4th film with Fraser. Stop f*cking rebooting this for christs sakes

@pf

Yeah he mentioned it in an interview. Considering how dodgy the TR remake was I am not in good faith on a Wiseman ST remake but we shall see.

^^He's done it several times, now. The comic book dildo joke, the Mama/Mummy news, and the Star Trek game piece. He just takes what we post to use later. Kind of annoying.
