SOMMERS DIRECTING MUMMY 3 AFTER ALL?
This is hilarious. Leading up to the release of his ambitious special effects blockbuster ?Van Helsing?, earlier in the year, Director Stephen Sommers let it be known that he was essentially ?beyond? doing another ?Mummy? movie. Instead, he was looking forward to doing more in the ?Helsing? world, in particular, a heavily-publicised TV series, that never happened.
Now, according to Coming Soon, Sommers seems might be enticed to swallow his pride and return to the Brendan Fraser starring series that he made his name on. Universal reportedly want him to get going on a ?Mummy 3? as soon as possible, and until they?ve got their sequel, it sounds like they?re not going to let him anywhere near the ?Flash Gordon? remake he wants to do ? not surprising after the millions the troupe lost on ?Van Helsing? - also set-up at the studio.
