The Mummy is returning again

with 8 comments

Looks like The Mummy 3 has been all but officially confirmed to be making a return to the big-screen.

Apparently, Brendan Fraser is going to get a massive deal out of it, and I supposed I’m OK with that, as long as it’s not crazy ridiculous. He’s a funny guy, and did good in the other two installments. However, they are not going to have Rachel Weisz back…apparently she’s dropped out of contract negotiations.

In my opinion it might be a little weird without Weisz, but Jet Li, who I thought was retiring from film all together, is going to take over for Arnold Vosloo as the baddie….

It’ll be interesting to see what Miles Millar and Alfred Gough can do with this one, considering their success with Smallville. I think this has potential, and I supposes I can go ahead and start my “Summer Blockbusters of 2008” list….

::EDIT::

So there’s more commetary up at FirstShowing.net…..The news of Weisz dropping out of Mummy 3 may confirm that she is headed towards being cast in Sin City 2….honestly, I think she could have gotten a better contract for Mummy, plus, it will probably make a lot more money. I’m disappointed that the author of the article at FirstShowing is saying they think the movie will be horrible and won’t cover it for awhile…At least give it a chance……seriously.

  1. Interesting news. I liked Weisz in that role. Do you know of any actresses who are trying out for the part?

  2. Not sure there are any. I think they go on to say they are just going to write her out somehow.

  3. Judging by what i have heard about how bad Mummy 3 is going to be, Rachel did the right thing.

    The article also explains why Rachel walked away from the film.

  8. I’m sad Rachel isn’t returning and I hope this movie doesn’t suck because I loved the first two.
