It has been a little while since we have heard anything about Alex Kurtzman 's upcoming reboot of THE MUMMY for Universal.

When you think of old and wise, you can't do much better than Sir Ben Kingsley . So, when the perfect voice needed to be chosen for the black panther Bagheera, director Jon Favreau went for the man who was not The Mandarin. Kingsley joins the already stellar cast that includes Idris Elba as Shere Khan, Scarlett Johansson as Kaa, and Lupita Nyong'o as Rakcha, Mowgli's wolf mother....

Awesome Art We've Found Around The Net: Dracula, Looper, Super Mario, X-Men

Some cliche somewhere said that 'a picture is worth a thousand words.' This has proven to be the case for me and especially when it comes to fan art.

In this column I will showcase the kick-ass...

Insidious: Chapter 3 finds a director and The Mummy reboot loses one

One project gains a director while another loses one; so goes the crazy world that is Hollywood. Movies are always in a constant state of flux as filmmakers leave and join projects about as often as athletes switch teams. Sometimes, the change is for the better result in the franchise and on some occasions it can foresee doom. Take these announcements for what you will. On the...

After Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu dropped out of Warner Bros' live action take on THE JUNGLE BOOK, the film has been looking for someone to step behind the camera. The person they selected is none other than Ron Howard . Howard is an interesting selection if only because it seemed his plate was full with his IN THE HEART OF THE SEA, the recently announced drug movie MENA, and his long...

Orci and Kurtzman are planning a Marvel-esque cinematic world featuring Van Helsing, The Wolfman, The Mummy, and more

When Roberto Orci and Alex Kurtzman came on board to produce Universal's latest versions of VAN HELSING and THE MUMMY, it was assumed their track record as producers and writers of genre films and television shows was the reason. It now turns out that the studio is looking to make something a little bigger in scope than just mere retreads. In an interview with IGN , Orci shared...

Stephen Sommers' languishing Odd Thomas starring Anton Yelchin to be released in 2014

After some legal tug of war it appears that the languishing in limbo fantasy crime thriller ODD THOMAS from director Stephen Sommers (THE MUMMY) is finally going to grace the big (or small) screen. Image Entertainment has acquired the film for release sometime in the first quarter of 2014 (no specific date is set as of yet). “Director Stephen Sommers ’s spectacular style...

From Mama to The Mummy: Andres Muschietti may direct Universal's franchise reboot

When THE MUMMY reboot was announced, we were skeptical. When Roberto Orci and Alex Kurtzman were announced as producers, we got nervous. When Len Wiseman was named director, we flipped the f*ck out. We needed a change from the Stephen Sommers CGI-fest, not another mid-level director trying to make a mediocre monster movie. Well, at least Wiseman dropped out , but who could come...
