Len Wiseman To Direct ‘THE MUMMY’ Reboot

Deadline has reported that director Len Wiseman has been picked to reboot Universal’s THE MUMMY and that Wiseman will work from Jon Spaihts‘ (Prometheus) script with a 2014 release date being eyed.

Here’s what Wiseman had to say;

“When I first heard Universal was relaunching this, that is the image that popped into my head, the period tale, the old monster, but when Bob and Alex pitched it, there was a great new take and approach, and a very different mummy as well. It’s a darker twist on the material, a scarier version.”

The Mummy is being produced by Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci through their Universal-based K/O Paper Products with former partners Sean Daniel and Jim Jacks.

This is like a killer dream team coming together for this darker reboot! Doubters beware, I have a feeling this could be huge!
