Fraser and Weisz unsure of Mummy 3?
We heard the rumour that Brendan Fraser was attached to The Mummy 3, despite all the plot changes from the series, and that Rachel Weisz was keen to reprise her role. Now we're hearing that he's not yet there, that there's no word on Weisz.
The latest comments he made add some uncertainty to it all, when asked if he was shooting The Mummy 3 next he said:
"I'm still waiting for the call, so we'll see...I haven't talked to Rachel yet, but it's all on the page."
The quote comes from Cinematical.
With Rob Cohen supposedly directing, and the whole Egyptian Mummy storyline dropped to uproot to a different backstory in China, I'm not so sure how strong this could work out. I always thought that a big part of the Mummy films attraction was the Mummy itself and the battle of Umhotep, played by Arnold Vosloo, to bring Anck Su Namun, played by Patricia Velasquez, back to his side which mirrored the love relationship of Rick and Evelyn.
Oh well, what do I know. Maybe it was just the big effects pieces and the wise cracks. Maybe any Mummy will do...isn't that a song from Joseph?
