The Mummy Reboot: Tom Cruise in Talks to Star

Tom Cruise and Sofia Boutella Confirmed For The Mummy


Seems to me that to be Dr. Jekel/Mr. Hyde, all Russel Crowe would have to do is act naturally lol. That’s a property that could use a reboot. The most recent incarnation of it I recall was the wonky BBC version and that could stand to be overwritten IMO. The Mummy, OTOH, isn’t…what’s wrong with the Brendan Fraser version (and what ever happened to him?)

Maybe Paul Feig should’ve made a better movie if he’s tired of the haters? The trailers really do look worse than SNL skits (their Scalp Team Six was funnier than this trailer). I kinda feel sorry for Thor getting cast in this.
