Many More Mummy Movies May Be Made

Ford, Bello livin' it up on the gravy train.

Have you had enough of the Mummy films yet? We hope not, because it seems like more of them — perhaps many more — are on their way.

Last week, Australia’s Herald Sun published an interview with Luke Ford, who stars in this year’s The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor, about the possibility that Universal might be eyeing him to head up his own adventures:

There was talk at one point they might do a spin off series with Alex O’Connell, depending on the success of this film…they’re picking me up to be in the franchise, not necessarily taking over it. I’d definitely like to be part of that series if they ask me again.

Now, MTV Movies reports that Ford’s co-star, Maria Bello, has “already signed on for a whole trilogy of sequels,” and views further installments as a certainty:

I don’t know when, but it’s going…[There will] absolutely be “The Mummy 4.”

For what it’s worth, the third Mummy — the first for Bello, who’s taking over for Rachel Weisz — is her favorite: she tells MTV that although she likes the first two movies in the series, she loves Tomb of the Dragon Emperor. Of course, it’s tough to beat the thrill of close combat with an invisible foe:

In the beginning of the movie I do a sword fight with an invisible mummy. I had to be on wires and do sword work. It took days to do, and it was so much fun. I would do flips on the wire and I’d land down and be like a little kid.
