Len Wiseman has just left the reboot of The Mummy over scheduling issues. Although this is a setback for the film it is still moving full steam ahead. Producers Sean Daniels, Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci will begin searching for a new director immediately.
Wiseman previously indicated that Kurtzman and Orci were envisioning a darker, scarier take on the “Mummy” mythology that would still appeal to all audiences. Though The Mummy character is a monster, the reboot is expected to provide him with a human personality.
We have been hearing murmurs about the movie for awhile now and they have said it will be a “modern day version of what would happen if we came across a mummy in our world today. ” An interesting concept but we will have to see how it comes off. Stay tuned for more.
