The Mummy 4 – Sequel Plans31.07.08 # Sequel # 179 Comments
“I don’t know when, but it’s going. [There will] absolutely be The Mummy 4.” So says Maria Bello, who plays the new (and improved?) Evelyn in Tomb of the Dragon Emperor.
Bello says she’s looking forward to three more Mummy movies, revealing she’s already signed on for the Mummy 4, 5 and 6. Luke Ford, who plays son Alex, is also signed for three more. Of course, it all depends on the gross of the latest instalment.
The Mummy has become increasingly globe-trotting. With the third movie set firmly in the Far East, the question is where will The Mummy 4 head off to next? Bello wants it to “take place in the Amazon”, while director Rob Cohen says “We now have it clear that the Mummy franchise can travel. If we want to go to Mexico or we want to go to Peru, we can because there’s a cultural truth there of the mummies and these beautiful cultures… The Aztec culture had a lot of mummies. I think that somehow that might make the basis of a good story.”
Where would you like The Mummy 4 to be set? In Mayan culture? Perhaps voodoo themed? Back in Egypt?
There is also an, unsubstantiated, rumour that the Alex character is being geared up to replace his father Rick (Brendan Fraser) as the main focus of the series.
Should Alex take over the franchise and leave parents Rick and Evey at home?
