Maria Bello Talks Mummy 3

by | September 12, 2007 | Comments

While promoting The Jane Austen Book Club at the Toronto International Film Festival, Maria Bello talked to reporters about her role in The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor.

As it turns out, all the rumors regarding Bello taking over the role of Evelyn O’Connell from Rachel Weisz were accurate: When she was asked why she’d dyed her hair dark brown, Bello replied, “It’s for Mummy 3, and I love it,” before providing a few details about her character’s evolution. As Sci Fi Wire quotes Bello:

“She has the same name, but she’s a very different character than Rachel played…she’s a bad-ass action chick. I had to train a lot. I had to do wushu, a martial-art form, some kickboxing, swordfighting, rifle training for a couple of months before we even started shooting. It’s the role of my dreams. It is just a blast.”

Bello and her Mummy 3 co-stars, Brendan Fraser and Jet Li, are scheduled to spend two months shooting in China. The film is slated for an August 1, 2008 opening.
