Another Reboot: The Mummy Remake Announced!


Hollywood is loving the reboots/remakes right now. Here comes a reboot of the remake of The Mummy!

Universal Pictures is setting Len Wiseman (Total Recall reboot, Die Hard 4.0, Underworld: Evolution) to direct The Mummy, the reboot of a franchise whose most recent incarnation grossed $1.25 billion over three films. It seems Wiseman is the go-to guy for sequels and remakes judging by his current directorial CV…

Jon Spaihts (Prometheus) is writing the script and the studio is said to be eyeing a potential summer 2014 release, so things are moving quickly, with Universal apparently eager to ramp back up one of its most venerable franchises.

According to statements by Wiseman to American press, the new flick will put the bandaged badie into a modern-day context, offering a “darker take on the material, a scarier version”.

I don’t know whether to run for the hills or to start making the days off on my calendar… thoughts?

Sian's love for movies spawned from having a tight mother whose generosity stretched only to hiring movies once a week for entertainment. As a pre-teen Sian spent more pocket money then she earned on cinema tickets and thus sought a job at the cinema. Over the next decade she rose to be one of the greats in her backwater, six-screen cinema complex, zooming through the ranks from candy bar wench with upselling superpowers, to pasty projectionist, to a manager rocking a pencil skirt. Sian went on to study Journalism at university though feels her popcorn shovelling days were far more educational
