Len Wiseman to direct The Mummy reboot
The Mummy is getting the reboot treatment, and Total Recall director Len Wiseman looks like he's landed the job...
Director Len Wiseman certainly doesn't pick projects to make his life a great deal easier. He was the man, after all, who helmed the PG-13 rated Die Hard sequel, and this year we also saw his remake of Total Recall. And he's lining up another remake next, it appears, as it's being reported that Wiseman is Universal's choice to reboot The Mummy franchise.
The idea first surfaced a few months ago, when Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci became attached to produce the movie. The appointment of a director suggests that the project is pushing ahead sooner than may have been thought, too, with a 2014 release now targeted. Prometheus co-writer Jon Spaihts has penned the screenplay.
