Underworld and Total Recall director Len Wiseman has revealed that his reboot of The Mummy won't be a period piece like the last three entries in the Universal franchise.
Speaking to Movieweb, Wiseman said, "The difference between the two, if The Mummy is to be the next movie for me, is that The Mummy is a completely different film. It is a modern day take. It doesn't have anything to do with the Brendan Fraser films, and it is not a remake of any kind."
The director added, "It's horror. Its epic. It's more of a modern day version of what would happen if we came across a mummy in our world today. It is pretty fascinating."
Jon Spaihts (Prometheus) is scripting for producers Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci (Star Trek, Transformers) and Mummy series veterans Sean Daniels and Jim Jacks.
