The Mummy 4 in Mexico?
Looks like there could be a fourth Mummy film after all and Rob Cohen is talking it up at every opportunity. I first heard it when he commented on the possibility of a xXx sequel with Vin Diesel, well now he's talking about locations for the new films as well as what he would explore in it.
The question is will it be successful enough to ensure another one is made.
Now you should be aware that as part of this story there's a big spoiler. So what I'll do is talk about the location aspects of the sequel first and then I'll go into the spoiler territory so that you can read as much as possible about it without spoiling the story.
In comments he makes through Cinema Blend he says:
"If we want to go to Mexico or we want to go to Peru, we can because there’s a cultural truth there of the mummies and these beautiful cultures."
Now, spoiler territory, and this could be huge I think, so if you don't like spoilers the time to look away is now.
You see there's a big reveal about the ending of the film, and while it feels completely Indiana Jones-esque, it does offer some interesting things for future films and also a big surprise in that the franchise isn't being geared just to be handed off to Alex O'Connell, played by Luke Ford.
Cohen reveals that near the end of the film Rick, played by Brendan Fraser, drinks from a pool of immortality:
"Rick is now immortal. I’d love to explore how that plays out for him"
Now that does surprise me, I really thought that this film was gearing up for a handover to the son, but it seems it opens all sorts of possibilities, the biggest one being the return of the entire gang for a fourth film, although Mexico? I guess if they've moved it once they can ove it again.
