Kate Beckinsale: Len Wiseman to Direct 'Mummy' Reboot!

Kate Beckinsale: Len Wiseman to Direct 'Mummy' Reboot!

Kate Beckinsale leaves Salon Benjamin with a friend on Wednesday (October 3) in West Hollywood, Calif.

The 39-year-old actress’ husband Len Wiseman is set to direct a reboot of The Mummy franchise!

“When I first heard Universal was relaunching this, that is the image that popped into my head, the period tale, the old monster, but when Bob [Orci] and Alex [Kurtzman] pitched it, there was a great new take and approach, and a very different mummy as well,” Len told Deadline of the film’s modern-day approach. “It’s a darker twist on the material, a scarier version.”

We hope there is a part for Kate in the film!

I’m sure they have cool ideas and I may even like the new movie. but really? Reboot is for 30year old movies not this still btw awesome movie!! Unless they’re just taking the idea but not recreating the same characters that we love. Cause no one could replace Brendan or Rachel.

# 2

What’s going on with her hair , why is it always so PERFECT ?

# 3

She will get a part for sure since she only played in her husband’s movies!!

# 4

yeah okay. she looks good like always. strange how the topic is on a director. so dunno about the reboot. they usually suck if the actors don’t deliver the same characters. now howto do brendon and rachel? for real. ;)

@Keri: It’s fake. Pretty much everyone hairdresser knows it.

# 9

She’s very pretty. But yeah, it’s obvious she will have a part since she always appears in her hubby’s movies. Also, why are they rebooting this franchise….or any franchise for that matter? Isn’t there any damn ORIGINALITY left in Hollywood nowadays?? Can’t they invent a new franchise plot ? Are they going to reboot everything that had success in the last decade ? No clever writer in there?? Maybe I should go to Hollywood and propose what comes from my imagination??

Let me guess, Kate will star in the project?

Beautiful hair!

She’s full of herself

The movies with Rachel and Brendan were already bad (I don’t say that, the critics say it), so I highly doubt Len Wiseman can do it better.

people leave Kate alone , her husband keeps casting her in these SCIFI flicks , I wish someone would give her a comedy script that is straight comedy no nudity so it has a G rating , she is funny to talk to , the script writers today suck , thats why the Industries having contests , they are looking for fresh ideas and good scripts
