Len Wiseman Talks About the ‘Mummy’ Reboot

Not having any other movies to make, Universal has decided to reboot the Mummy franchise that starred Brendan Fraser; which was itself was a reboot of the classic Universal monster movie.

Directing the re-reboot will be Len Wiseman, the mastermind behind such cinematic classics as Underworld and Total Recall (2012), who told the following to Movie Web about the film:

“There was skepticism. The difference between the two, if The Mummy is to be the next movie for me, is that The Mummy is a completely different film. It is a modern day take. It doesn’t have anything to do with the Brendan Fraser films, and it is not a remake of any kind.

“It’s horror. Its epic. It’s more of a modern day version of what would happen if we came across a mummy in our world today. It is pretty fascinating.”

Wiseman wants his film to be less Raider of the Lost Ark and more a straight up modern horror film.

Do you think he can pull it off?

To be honest, I didn’t hate the first two Fraser Mummy films. They were dumb fun and a nice escape for a couple of hours.

    I think they were a lot more than dumb fun, they were genuinely enjoyable adventure flicks.

    Loved the first Mummy. The mummy returns had issues but i still enjoyed it. No NEED for a reboot but of course Hollywood has no orignal ideas. Not exactly a great director or visonary either but eh. i will wait forit on blu ray/dvd

    The mummy films where a hoot. High fun adventure. What’s not to like? But I too would like a retelling that is more horror like the original.
