Rob Cohen’s New Mummy Update

ON

The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor director Rob Cohen has announced on his official Blog for the movie that, not only is he in heavy post-production for the film, his wife just gave birth to triplets as well! Congrats to you sir. Here’s a bit on the movie’s status:

I have shown the film to the exec’s at Universal and they are through-the-roof ecstatic. We screened a few weeks ago for all the relevant department heads (home video, distribution, foreign, p.r., marketing, etc.) and the reaction was unanimous. It’s running around 1 hr. 53 minutes and, daily as we hone, it’s taking its final shape. The studio has been very collaborative and supportive. You know they love it when they ask you if you need any more money to enhance the visual effects budget!!! Are there more shots that I want to do but didn’t have the money to do?!!! Of course, the answer is yes; there is never enough to entertain the audience in any film. That kind of support from Chairmen Marc Shmuger and David Linde, President Donna Langley, and V.P.’s Jeff Kirschenbaum and Erik Baiers is rare in Hollywood so I am very pleased all the way around.

Lots more at the link above, where he also mentions that the teaser trailer will debut on his Blog soon.
