Len Wiseman To Reboot The Mummy

Len Wiseman Wrapping Up Deal To Helm Universal Reboot Of ‘The Mummy’

The film is being produced by Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci through their Universal-based K/O Paper Products, alongside former partners Sean Daniel and Jim Jacks. Latter two produced the version launched by Steve Sommers which starred Brendan Fraser and Rachel Weisz.
