The Mummy will rise again

Prometheus writer set to handle Universal’s reboot.

Universal is breathing new life into The Mummy.

Variety reports that the studio has hired Jon Spaihts, the original screenwriter of Prometheus, to script the franchise reboot for producer Sean Daniel, who also produced the past Mummy pics.

“I see it as the sort of opportunity I had with Prometheus: to go back to a franchise’s roots in dark, scary source material, and simultaneously open it up to an epic scale we haven’t seen before,” Spaihts told the trade.
