Earlier this year, it was revealed that director Len Wiseman would be having a crack at a reboot of The Mummy franchise. Now, Len has opened up about his take on The Mummy, claiming that it has absolutely nothing to do with the Brendan Fraser films and will instead be a modern-day take on the character.

Wiseman told Movie Web, “There was scepticism. The difference between the two, if The Mummy is to be the next movie for me, is that The Mummy is a completely different film. It is a modern day take. It doesn't have anything to do with the Brendan Fraser films, and it is not a remake of any kind.”
 
He added, “The Mummy is one of Universal's long-standing, iconic characters, well before the Brendan Fraser movies... This is such a different thing. What was attractive to me...There is still a script to be written, and all of that....But the pitch was to go with a much different tone.”

Len continued, “It was a Mummy like I'd never heard of before. It's nothing like what you would expect, at all, oddly. I was picturing Egypt, and the sand swept settings. The Mummy wrappings. When I heard what they were wanting to actually do with it, it was shocking.”
 
Len Wiseman also went on to say how his version of The Mummy would not be anywhere near as action packed as the Brendan Fraser films and will instead be an epic horror based in modern-day America. Universal are currently hoping to get The Mummy released sometime in 2014.
