Is Jet Li the New "Mummy"?

by | February 5, 2007 | Comments

Guess we’ll just keep hearing newer and juicier "Mummy 3" rumors until Universal sends out an official press release, but here’s what we’ve learned so far: Rob Cohen will be directing, Brendan Fraser and Rachel Weisz might be returning — and has Jet Li been cast as the new villain?

From Mania.com we hear that Mr. Li is most definitely in talks to appear in "The Mummy: Curse of the Dragon," and the general assumption is that he’ll be playing, well, the dragon. Universal is shooting for a summer 2008 release date, so you can expect more concrete info some time soon.

For those with short memory spans, I’ll remind you that 1999’s "The Mummy" grossed about $415 million in worldwide box office, while the 2001 sequel ("The Mummy Returns") pulled in about $433 million around the globe. With numbers like that … more sequels are simply inevitable.
