Hollywood actor Brendan Fraser has confirmed that he will not be starring in the new The Mummy reboot, planned by Universal. Brendan says that he has not been contacted about appearing in the movie, although he would love to even just cameo in the movie.
Fraser explained, "I wasn't approached. I would certainly entertain the idea, and I know for sure that I will be there on opening day to get a good seat. Unless they call me for some in-joke, nudge-nudge, wink-wink reason to walk an actor through a cameo in the background a la Hitchcock or something. I don't even know if it's necessary, but how do I feel about that? I'm supportive of it."
He added, "I think it's going to be great. It's good source material. So many films based on The Mummy were made even before that. I don't think for a minute that Steve Sommers (writer and director of the new film) and the current company were the ones who really brought it to interest or prominence. Those characters were around in the cabinet of Universal monsters and have been for almost 100-years now."
So far, The Mummy reboot is in the very early stages of development and it could be sometime before we find out who will be starring in the lead roles for the movie. It has already been revealed that The Mummy reboot will be a lot darker than those before it, which should make for interesting viewing.
