Russell Crowe confirmed for The Mummy

Just last week there were reports that Russell Crowe was in negotiations to star as a Dr. Jekyll-type character in The Mummy starring Tom Cruise. It was said that the role could be more than just a cameo and if successful would open the door for him to star in more films and possibly his own solo feature.

Now, what was a rumor has become a confirmation as Crowe has confirmed that he will be a part of the Monsters Shared Universe that Universal Pictures is currently building. Plus, he says the film is being made to “seriously scare the shit out of you.” More on the story below.

Darren Aronofsky's Noah Starring Russell Crowe Mummy

Shared universes are all the rage, and studios are in the midst of locking in A-list stars for these films, sometimes for multiple pictures. Disney has Star Wars and MCU. Warner Bros has the DCEU. Paramount is starting to build their Hasbro Shared Universe. And Universal Pictures is putting their Shared Monsters Universe into motion.

Tom Cruise will be starring in the reboot of The Mummy, and it appears the film will not be short on star power as there are reports coming in saying that Russell Crowe will be joining him, and could possibly be in more films.

More on the story below.

The first movie to be rebooted in Universal Pictures’ Classic Monsters shared universe, The Mummy, has found its mummy.

It’s being reported that Sofia Boutella, who had a breakout role in the surprise hit Kingsman: The Secret Service and has a role in the upcoming Star Trek Beyond, is in talks to take on the tile role of the reboot.

The Mummy 1932

There’s no doubt whatsoever that many eyes rolled at the news that Universal was going to attempt to turn their classic monsters into a shared universe similar to what Marvel has been doing, beginning with a reboot of The Mummy. But when a name like Tom Cruise comes into the picture, eyebrows will no doubt raise above those previously rolled eyeballs…making for some truly silly faces others will giggle at.

It’s being reported that Cruise has entered into talks for a role in the new Mummy flick, which makes things much more interesting. Who would Cruise play? That’s unclear at the moment…but given that this is a shared universe, you can expect that it would be a multi-picture deal that would see him showing up in other movies that will follow The Mummy centering on Wolf Man, Dracula, and more.

Star Trek

The last time that a new episode of a Star Trek TV series was on the air was over a decade ago when Star Trek: Enterprise ended its fifth and final season.

Whispers of a new TV show have come and gone from time to time, especially after J.J. Abrams successfully rebooted the movie franchise in 2009, but now a new series is officially on the way. It’s being reported that Star Trek movie writer and producer Alex Kurtzman is developing a new take on the beloved franchise for television, which he will also executive produce. But those of you excited about news like this have even more to be excited about: the franchise is already established enough that, instead of waiting for a pilot to be ordered and made and watched to decide if they want to give it a full series, this new show has already been given the full series order. There is, however, a bit of a catch.

The Amazing Spider-Man 2 Trailer Header Image

There is just no end to the Spider-Man franchise rumors. Yesterday, we reported that Sony might be willing to let Marvel use the character in attempts to reestablish him as the lucrative franchise character he was while Sam Raimi was directing. While it is a long shot, it is definitely a move that would benefit both houses, but also should be a huge service to fans.

Now comes a new rumor that Sony is rebooting the franchise yet again, but that it will be a “soft reboot.” There are also murmurings of the Alex Kurtzman-directed Venom being cancelled. Hit the jump to learn more.

Alex Kurtzman Talks Darker Venom Spinoff Movie

Venom

The Venom we saw in Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man 3 wasn’t really the Venom Spider-Man fans wanted to see, but it was as close to seeing the alien symbiote on the big screen as we were going to get. The character is most known for sharing the same abilities as Spider-Man, but also having some distinguishing ones like being able to block Spider-Man’s Spider Sense and limited shapeshifting.

For Alex Kurtzman, we can expect to see a Venom that is much darker than “your friendly neighborhood Spider-Man,” in the upcoming Amazing Spider-Man spinoff film of the same name. Hit the jump to see his comments.

Recently it was announced that Universal was going to reboot their Classic Monsters, and also bring them together similarly to what Marvel did with their superheros in The Avengers.

The ambitious plan is being developed by writers Alex Kurtzman and Chris Morgan, but now it appears at least one of the two wants to get a little more hands-on. It’s being reported that Kurtzman is in final negotiations to direct the first of the rebooted monster flicks, The Mummy, himself.
