Now less than five minutes ago, I found out that there is going to be a third Mummy movie (4th if you count Scorpion King, which I dont technically consider a Mummy movie). Now I enjoy all three Mummy movies, as flawed as they are. In fact, they might be some of my favorite movies I've ever seen.
So naturally, I was excited to find out about a third Mummy. So I went to IMDB to find out more. There I found out two things UNBELIEVABLY wrong with this movie. The first being that the movie will NOT take place in Egypt. Come on Hollywood, Egypt worked perfectly in the first two Mummy movies, why do you have to take it somewhere else?
After this, I found out that the movie would take place in China, and my hopes were lightened. China is always a cool place to have a setting. And throwing in Egypt mythology with Chinese Samurais and other stuff could be very cool and could work if it's done right.
Then I found out the second thing wrong with this senario: Arnold Vosloo will not be in the third Mummy movie. No, they arent getting a new actor to play Imhotep, they are COMPLETELY excluding Imhotep from the third movie. Thats right, THEY ARE MAKING A MUMMY MOVIE WITHOUT THE ORIGNAL MUMMY!
I'll give you a moment to let this sink in........
Ok, now that Hollywood has ruined something dear to my heart, this movie better be great. It probably wont be, but if it does end up great by some miracle, I can forgive all of the above things. Until then, The Mummy series is dead to me.
