Directors be bloggin', yo.

We’ve still got nearly a year to wait for The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor — but if you’re itching for an update on the sequel’s production, director Rob Cohen is more than happy to oblige.

Thanks to a report posted at Movieweb yesterday, we were alerted to a new entry in Cohen’s blog, which shares a few details from the set, including the following:

Tomorrow begins the big ten-day count-down to finishing the first half of the shoot, our sojourn here in Montreal. We then move to the desert north of Beijing to shoot the epic ending battle where the Terra Cotta Army takes the field once more. There are over 700 visual effects shots in the film and a good percentage of them will take place in the last twenty minutes of the movie.

I am still on schedule, which is as much a miracle to me as to the studio brass. There have been many days of elation and many moments of pain but, overall, it has been a shoot of smooth flow and meticulous detail. I’ve been editing behind myself because in a large VFX movie like this, I have to turn over sequences to Digital Domain and Rhythm & Hues, our two VFX houses, before the whole film is cut, or shot for that matter, just to make the delivery date in early July.

Yes, he did say “Terra Cotta Army.” From the film’s synopsis:

Rob Cohen (XXX) directs this sequel that fast forwards the archaeological action of THE MUMMY RETURNS to 1946. Rick (Brendan Fraser) and Evelyn (Maria Bello in the role originated by Rachel Weisz) may have retired to England, and their now-grown son (Luke Ford) is following in their footsteps. But it’s the resurrection of China’s ten-thousand-strong terra cotta army that brings the adventuring couple back into the action.
