Tom Cruise Is In Talks To Star In A Remake Of The Mummy — Which May Be The Start Of An Avengers-Style Universe Of Monster Movies?!

no title

Not every studio is hopping on the superhero movie bandwagon!

It's been reported that to help launch its new era of monster films, Universal is rebooting The Mummy!

And according to Variety, Tom Cruise is in talks to star in the leading role!

Last summer, the studio assembled a team of Star Trek producer Alex Kurtzman and Furious 7 writer Chris Morgan to develop a multi-film universe where Universal's classic monster movie library can be resurrected!

The studio is trying to develop a Marvel or DC Comics style universe for its famous characters — but instead of Iron Man and Thor, it will be Dracula, Frankenstein's monster, and The Wolf Man!

So basically, Universal's answer to The Avengers films is the cast of Hotel Transylvania? LOLz!

As for The Mummy reboot, Cruise will reportedly play a major part in development of the revival. The plot is still under wraps (get it?) other than that it will be set in present day, not like the previous Brendan Fraser-led installments!

Are YOU excited for classic movie monsters to make their way back to the big screen?

We can't wait for Star Trek Beyond to hit theaters next summer — but now it looks like we have even more Star Trek to look forward to!

It's been reported that the sci-fi classic is heading back to television for a straight-to-series order at CBS!

Alex Kurtzman, who co-wrote 2009's Star Trek and 2013's Star Trek Into Darkness, is developing a new take on the series slated to premiere in January 2017!

The reboot will introduce new characters adventuring to never-before-seen worlds and new civilizations to explore dramatic themes that have been a staple of the series since it began in 1966!

So, it doesn't sound like this will follow the alternative universe set up in 2009's franchise revival, but an entirely new universe — though it's too early to rule out crossover completely!

After the pilot, all episodes of Star Trek will air on CBS All Access, the network's digital VOD and live streaming service!

The cross-platform streaming service is available for $5.99 a month, and contains thousands of episodes from past and present CBS shows — including all previous Star Trek series!

Will this revival series live long and prosper on the streaming service??
