Tom Cruise in in early negotiations to help bring the The Mummy franchise back from the dead.
We loved the Brendan Fraser “Mummy” movies but Universal wants to start a classic monster cinematic universe so they are resurrecting it.
Reports say that unlike the old franchise, the reboot will set in present times. However, like the old one, it’ll still be action-adventure filled than scary.
According to sources, The Mummy franchise reboot will be the first set. Alex Kurtzman will direct while Jon Spaihts is writing the script. It has a March 24, 2017 release date.
Update: According to Deadline, Universal and Tom Cruise are currently not working on a deal for The Mummy reboot.
