Despite the fact the “>The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor (review) is being hailed as the absolute dumbest of the trilogy so far (which is really saying something for this particular series), that’s not stopping director Rob Cohen from already discussing plans for Mummy 4.
**Spoiler warning if you’ve not seen The Mummy 3**
Cohen told MTV Movies Blog that, now that Rick O’Connell has drunk from the pool of eternal life, he’s immortal. So of course his next enemy is going to have to be someone really, really big. Or so one would hope. Actually the only thing that was really discussed was that the film would likely be set in Latin America.
“They have a lot of mummies,” Cohen revealed to MTV. ”The Aztec culture had a lot of mummies and some of their mummy designs for the Foundation Army were taken from Mexican mummies that they have found. So I think that somehow that might make the basis of a good story.”
Would it be so hard to make a Mummy movie that wasn’t about mummies? I mean, really, how many pissed off ancient dead guys are there they could fight? Personally I think, since he’s immortal now, they should set the next one in present day or, even better, the future. Fraser wouldn’t have to look old and they could get a whole new cast to join him! And he could fight robots! Couldn’t be any dumber than soccer-kicking yetis…
