Jet Li is in talks to play the villainous title character in Universal Pictures’ The Mummy 3, being directed by Rob Cohen. Alfred Gough and Miles Millar wrote the script.
Plot details of the script are being kept under wraps, says The Hollywood Reporter. However, it is known that the action is set in China, with Li’s story beginning in ancient times before moving to a post-World War II setting. It is also known that one sequence involves the famous terra-cotta warriors, the collection of 6,000 men and their horses that were originally constructed to protect the tomb of an emperor.
Stephen Sommers and Bob Ducsay along with Sean Daniel and Jim Jacks are producing.
