Alex Kurtzman and Chris Morgan are producing the film, and are also in charge of creating a series of Avengers-style interconnected movies, based around the stable of Universal monsters. Sophia Boutella is also onboard to play The Mummy herself. Wallis meanwhile will be the female lead, who is a scientist, but there’s no news on who Johnson will be.
Although Universal is keeping its cards close to its chest, it’s believed this reboot will be set in the modern day. It’s also promised that it will be a horror movie, although mixed with action, adventure and probably a PG-13 certificate. Expect it in cinemas June 2017.
