No Mummy for Mama DirectorAnd another one bites the dust. First it was Len Wiseman who left Universal’s proposed reboot of The Mummy and now word has come that Mama director Andres Muschietti has exited the film. Looks like this is one project that’s poised to unravel.

Fittingly enough, The Wrap, reports that Muschetti left the project due to creative differences.

Jon Spaihts wrote the current draft of the script, which reimagined The Mummy franchise in modern day with new characters not seen in previous iterations and a protagonist imbued with a human personality.

Explains the site, when Len Wiseman was previously attached to direct, he indicated that producers Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci were envisioning a darker, scarier take on the Mummy mythology that would still appeal to all audiences. Apparently, the project has changed direction, as Muschetti wanted to deliver a darker take rather than the four-quadrant, more family-friendly action-adventure blockbuster that Universal now has in mind.

Yeah, because the CGI Yetis making football gestures played so well the last time. Thanks for nothing.

    “producers Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci were envisioning a darker, scarier take on the Mummy mythology”

    Sure they were. I bet the comment stems from a mistranslation of “Kurtzman and Orci’s ideas for the movie were horrifying.”
