The Mummy is set to return for a reboot, according to Director Len Wisemen. he is preparing to bring back the movie to a new scary way. The stars Rachel Weisz and Brendan Fraser did star in the original 1999 movie and the sequel in 2001.
He tells Deadline.com,
”When I first heard Universal was relaunching this, that is the image that popped into my head, the period tale, the old monster, but when (the producers) pitched it, there was a great new take and approach, and a very different mummy as well. It’s a darker twist on the material, a scarier version.
“One of the things that interested me with this mummy is, he’s still in essence a man. They haven’t turned his brain into a monster brain. He still has a personality and is very cunning and calculating. He’s a true character in any form, and in creature form, even if he is that staggering creature, it becomes more important that he’s a thinking, calculating person.”
The new movie is due to hit cinemas in 2014.
