Fraser to Reprise Mummy Role

Source: TMZ.com

September 8, 2006

 

 

TMZ.com has learned that Universal Pictures has signed Brendan Fraser to reprise his role of Rick O'Connell in a third installment of "The Mummy" franchise. The movie is being readied to begin shooting early next year, says the site.

 

The studio has apparently made an offer to Joe Johnston (Hidalgo, Jurassic Park III) to direct. Stephen Sommers wrote and directed the first two films. "Smallville" creators Alfred Gough and Miles Millar are penning the new film.

 

The site says that the project will be a reimagining of the first two films, so we'll have to see whether Rachel Weisz, John Hannah, Arnold Vosloo or Oded Fehr will be back as well.

 

Ok, what does 'reimaging' mean?

I'll see this if this time the Mummy is played by Brendan Fraser's career. The whole world becomes terrified when it looks like his career is going to be resurrected, but then they all go see a sh*tty movie called The Mummy Returns Yet Again and they realize there was nothing to be afraid of after all. The resurrection was just a false alarm.

 

It would be metafiction at it's most metafabulous.
