Len Wiseman’s ‘The Mummy’ is Set in Modern Day America

Chris Savage

During our time we have seen an absolute slew of Mummy films come and go, some good, some bad and some just down right ugly. So you guys probably know that Len Wiseman has a Mummy flick of his own in the works, but I’m sure you’re wondering which direction it will take? Well, our friends over at MovieWeb caught up with the director and he gave us a little insight as to how this one will play out.

Wiseman told the site; “There was skepticism. The difference between the two, if ‘The Mummy’ is to be the next movie for me, is that ‘The Mummy’ is a completely different film. It is a modern day take. It doesn’t have anything to do with the Brendan Fraser films, and it is not a remake of any kind… the pitch was to go with a much different tone. It was a Mummy like I’d never heard of before. Its nothing like what you would expect, at all, oddly. I was picturing Egypt, and the sand swept settings. The mummy wrappings. When I heard what they were wanting to actually do with it, it was shocking.” He then went on to add, “It’s horror. Its epic. It’s more of a modern day version of what would happen if we came across a mummy in our world today. It is pretty fascinating.”

So there you have it. Whats do you guys think about this one? Excited?

        I would love an adaptation of Anne Rice’s The Mummy, it is a great mummy story.
        This movie sounds alright from the very short description, I will follow to see how it comes along.
