We’ve been reporting for a while that Tom Cruise was attached to Universal’s new The Mummy movie and now it’s all paid off.
Yes, Cruise has officially signed on for the reboot as is Kingsman’s Sofia Boutella who will play the Mummy (as we reported here) itself in the movie directed by Alex Kurtzman.
On top of all that, the movie will arrive in cinemas on June 9th, 2017, marking the second in Universal’s new monsters shared universe which kicked off last year with Dracula Untold.
That’s all we have for now… but we’ll be following it closely.
Is Tom Cruise a suitable replacement for Brendan Frazer? Let us know.
