SOMMERS STEPS DOWN FROM MUMMY 3
Contrary to recent rumours, Stephen Sommers will not be directing 'The Mummy 3'.
I could easily end the news item there, but there's more : it's still happening. (Karloff purists smash tomato puree against their monitors).
Universal and Sommers are planning a third chapter in the Brendan Fraser-starring series, but Sommers is said to be on the lookout for a surrogate - he'll only produce the next chapter.
Brendan Fraser isn't a sure thing either. He's dubious about doing a third chapter. And with hits like 'Monkeybone' and 'Looney Tunes : Back in Action', you can't blame him from wondering whether there's a shinier gem in the offers pile.
In addition to 'Mummy 3', Sommers is also involved in 'Flash Gordon'. He's decided to only produce that too.
