Jake Johnson to get tangled in The Mummy, character details unveiled

03.08.2016by: Brennan Klein

More in bonkers casting news for Universals upcoming reboot of THE MUMMY: New Girl star Jake Johnson has signed on to join Tom Cruise, who is playing "a special forces soldier." Johnson will be playing another member of the military in a role written specifically for him.

It's hard to imagine that a funnyman like Johnson was the first choice for a movie like this, but he has been making a splash lately, most notably with his breakaway supporting role in JURASSIC WORLD. However, he's certainly the most unlikely ex-sitcom military member since John Krasinski in 13 HOURS. And ALOHA. You know what? Maybe this is just the new trend.

Cruise and Johnson are joined in the cast by KINGSMAN's Sofia Boutella, who is said to be playing the titular character and ANNABELLE's Annabelle Wallis, who is playing a scientist.

Unwrap THE MUMMY on June 9, 2017. Alex Kurtzman is directing and producing the film, which is part of Universal's massive plan to creature a shared universe with their "Classic Monsters" characters. PROMETHEUS co-writer Jon Spaihts is tapping out the script.

Universal can go shove this Military vs Mummy movie up their ass

Tom Cruise and the lovable baffoon from New Girl (a show that officially ditched its titular character...) against a shitty mummy. It's not even like they are going to be classy about the mummy being female either, you know its going to be ugly for 10 seconds before turning into a half naked chick for eye candy. This movie is another one of those shitfests you can smell coming from a mile away. F4, Ghostbusters and now this.
