SCI FI Wire talked to Al Gough, who is co-writing the third “Mummy” film with partner Miles Millar for director Rob Cohen and Universal Pictures. Gough revealed that the story will involve the grown son of Rick (Brendan Fraser) and Evie (Rachel Weisz). You’ll be seeing a new mummy as well.
“We figured out a really good family story with Rick and Evie, and [their son] Alex is now grown up. So it’s really interesting.” Alex was played as a young boy in 2001’s The Mummy Returns by Freddie Boath.
He added that Fraser and Weisz are in talks to return. They are expected to start shooting this summer for a summer 2008 release. Visit the link above for more of the interview.
