It seems that Universal is moving full steam ahead with its planned Cinematic Universe of its classic monsters, with just yesterday, Angelina Jolie being rumored for the role of Frankenstein’s Bride. It now seems that there’s another actor who may just be joining her.
According to Variety, Mission Impossible actor, Tom Cruise is apparently in negotiations for Universals reboot of The Mummy. Cruise was previously rumored to be starring in a new film featuring classic monster hunter Van Helsing – could this be the same role he’s playing in The Mummy? Acting as a Coulson-esque character to create a tighter continuity between films?
The film is set to be directed by Alex Kurtzman, who is also producing along with Chris Morgan. The same pair is also overseeing the development of other films in the franchise. The film is currently set for a 2017 release.
