3 new Mummy movies ?

According to a "Moviehole" Insider,  Stephen Sommers is getting close to fixing on the direction of "The Mummy 3".

"Fehr proved he's got what it takes to kick a bit of butt, as we just saw in the Resident Evil sequel. Admittedly, Brendan Fraser's star's dropped considerably since the last film anyway, so having a lesser name carry the film mightn't matter so much, especially since Sommers wants storyline and special effects to be the star anyway. I think there's some talk about Fehr, yeah - and I don't think anyone would complain about it, he's good".

Fehr would rejoin series star Arnold Vosloo, who's almost a certainty to step into the shoes of The Mummy again. He even let slip that Stephen Sommers is considering taking the Mummy to more than just one new movie. In an interview last year, Vosloo said: "That's one idea yes. Universal wants Sommers to develop another three more Mummy movies in total I believe, so one of them will almost certaintly have the Mummy invading 50's London or something."

Another insider said, that Steven Sommers' plans for both a "Van Helsing" sequel and spin-off TV series have been canceled, because of the movie's poor B.O reception.
