We reported last year that Universal will be remaking all of their classic monster movies. Plans are already in place for a ‘Creature from the Black Lagoon‘ remake, but also an adaption of ‘The Mummy’. ‘The Mummy’ is set to be released on March 23, 2017 and will be direct by Alex Kurtzman, with the screen play written by Jon Spaihts, who worked on the movie ‘Prometheus’.
The original ‘The Mummy’ movie was released in 1932 in black and white and starred Boris Karloff. In 1999 another version of ‘The Mummy’ was released, directed by Stephen Sommers and starring Brandon Frazier, which ended in a four movie franchise. In both the original and 1999 movie the Mummy stalks a beautiful woman, who he thinks is the reincarnation of his lost love. There is no word yet if the new version will follow the same story. Universal has made the statement that the new movie will be both action packed and scary.
