New Writers (& Director) for "The Mummy 3"

by | January 10, 2007 | Comments

Yep, looks like Universal is finally about to get off its butt and make a third "Mummy" movie. Though not signed yet, Brendan Fraser and Rachel Weisz are expected to return. And wait till you see who they got to writer and direct the sequel!

Yep, "The Mummy 3," only this time Stephen Sommers isn’t directing it. Rob Cohen is! Yep, the guy who did "xXx" and "The Fast and the Furious" must make amends for delivering "Stealth" unto the world, and it looks like he’ll be the one in the director’s chair for this one.

In screenwriting news, it seems that Alfred Gough and Miles Millar will be penning the new follow-up. Fanboys/girls no doubt recognize those names from "Shanghai Noon," "Spider-Man 2," and (of course) "Smallville."

That’s about all we have for this project so far, but rest assured we’ll be talking about "The Mummy 3" a whole bunch by the time it hits theaters.
