Universal has been looking at putting forth yet another version of the old classic horror monster, the Mummy, the latest in a long tradition of Hollywood attempting to make new money from old products. It’s gone through a couple of incarnations in the form of multiple scripts and now it looks as if the project will need a new director as well.
Len Wiseman was set to direct the reboot, but has now gone bye-bye, instead choosing to focus on his upcoming Sleepy Hollow series. This has caused a bit of chaos, of course, since the plan was to release the new Mummy sometime in 2014. Now, if they want to keep that kind of a schedule, they’ll need a new director, and fast.
What do the Nerd Readers think? A new “darker” Mummy movie? Or just let the poor guy have another decade of rest?
Thanks to /film for the heads-up.
