Not that it’s ever been in much question, but a little official information never hurts.
Variety announced this morning that Brendan Fraser has just signed the deal to return to his role as Rick O’Connell in the upcoming Rob Cohen-helmed Mummy 3. A bit suprising is the word that Rachel Weisz, who played his wife Evelyn, will not be coming back on board. But then, she has other work lined up…
For those not following along, The Mummy 3 will be set in China and feature a whole new villain, this time out to be played by Jet Li, with the focus being placed more on the O’Connell’s eldest son. The script, penned by “Smallville” creators Miles Millar and Alfred Gough, will need another pass through to write out the Evelyn character; betcha anything they kill her off to prevent this from happening again with The Mummy 4.
