Rob Cohen has announced on the official Mummy blog that shooting has now ended on the third instalment of The Mummy series.
This film hasn’t got much coverage on screenrant, I’m not sure if Vic and Heath have a particular axe to grind with the franchise or if they’re just more interested in bigger movies coming up. Maybe Iron Man, but I could be wrong :-D
As Mr Cohen, says; “After 91 days of shooting and 2,021 shots, The Mummy: Tomb of The Dragon Emperor has wrapped“.
The Mummy: Tomb of The Dragon Emperor it just rolls off the tongue, doesn’t it?
I really like the first Mummy film, and I thought that the sequel, the imaginatively titled The Mummy Returns was pretty good. The first half was great fun, the second half was a bit lame, and don’t even get me started on The Scorpian King’s CGI.
This film has been under the radar, which is very strange considering the bucklet loads of money the first two films made.
I’m hoping that Cohen can resurrect this series, and the simple decision to get rid of the kid and place him in his early twenties is a great start.
New Mummy facts:
The Mummy: Tomb of The Dragon Emperor takes place in Asia, and instead of Arnold Vosloo as The Mummy, this time we have have Jet Li.
Rachel Weisz won an Oscar, she won’t be back. Instead we have Maria Bello.
