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?

Brendan Fraser Rachel Weisz The Mummy Reboot Not Dark Enough

Screenwriter Alex Kurtzman has a few entrees on his plate but thankfully doesn't mind speaking with his mouth full!!

Apparently, the studios who asked Kurtzman and his writing partner Robert Orci to draft scripts for reboots of The Mummy and Van Helsing, want them to dig deep and channel their inner darkness!

The Mummy Is Getting A Reboot

The Mummy reboot

Has it been five years already? Then it's time for another reboot!

Universal has decided it's time to utilize one of the oldest monsters in the book and is rebooting The Mummy, which was last seen in theaters in 2008.

Although the producer of the last three films is returning, the latest interpretation is said to be "dark" in comparison. Considering the guy who co-wrote Prometheus is writing the screenplay, we have no doubt the movie will have a very distinct vision from its fluffy predecessors.

Are U excited for Hollywood to unwrap another Mummy movie?

The Mummy/Glory Screenwriter Kevin Jarre Passes Away

Filed under: Film FlickersR.I.P.Sad Sad

screenwriter kevin jarre passes away

Hollywood has lost a very talented screenwriter WAY before his time.

Screenwriter Kevin Jarre has passed away at 56-years-old from unexpected heart failure.

Jarre's screenwriting credits include Tombstone and Glory. He was also a co-writer/executive producer on Stephen Sommers' The Mummy.

Kevin Jarre's adoptive father was legendary Lawrence of Arabia/Ghost composer Maurice Jarre, who passed away two years ago.

Our thoughts go out to Jarre's family, friends, and peers during this very difficult time.

To this day, Glory is still shown in history classrooms. Kevin's work will be remembered.
