After months of rumors and denials and more rumors going back to last Thanksgiving,Tom Cruise is officially starring in Universal’s The Mummy
The reboot/remake/etc. of the classic 1932 Boris Karloff horror movie, which itself was rebooted into an enormously successful fantasy action franchise starring Brendan Fraser and Rachel Weisz in 1999, is supposed to be the start of what Universal hopes will be its connected universe mythology involving their classic monsters library. The film, produced by Chris Morgan and Sean Daniel, directed by Alex Kurtzman and written by Jon Spaihts, will presumably be the first in an ongoing series of action-centric horror/fantasy films that will theoretically be the equivalent of Walt Disney DIS +1.08% Marvel Cinematic Universe and/or Warner Bros./Time Warner TWX +1.45% Inc.’s DC Comics movie world.
