More creative differences, as director Andy Muschietti departs Universal's reboot of The Mummy...

Universal has high hopes for its latest reboot of The Mummy franchise, which is currently scheduled to land in cinemas in 2016. But it's hit a problem. The studio had hired the director of Mama, Andy Muschietti, to helm the new Mummy film, and Muschietti himself passed on a project called Bird Box to make the movie. However, he's now quit The Mummy, with The Wrap reporting "creative differences" as the reason why.

Bird Box is still a possibility for Muschietti, a director Universal remains keen to work with. But the search is on for a new Mummy director. Len Wiseman had also been attached to the project at one stage, but he's long since moved on too.

Muschietti's departure from The Mummy is described as "amicable". More news on the film as we get it.
