Why???? The Mummy Returns was so bad that I never bothered with The Scorpion King. Why should I bother with this???

it makes no sense 2 make a third, all the ends were tied up and should be left tied up and this film should never to see the light of day, esp. with out Sommers. Come on Hollywood where is all the inspiration new films not more sequels

It remains to be seen, but if Fraser is the only star to return and Sommers isn't directing (not that I think he's that good anyway), this could fall into a straight to video low budget disaster....  Bad idea all round.

Dorothy: How can you talk if you haven't got a brain?
Scarecrow: I don't know... But some people without brains do an awful lot of talking... don't they?
Dorothy: Yes, I guess you're right.

Maybe they had Breadan Fraser's Character go on an unmummy related adventure. I would watch it

The Mummy.
The Mummy Returns.
The Mummy Forever?

Which of course means we get unfortunate mess of a film that will be The Mummy and Robin before going back several years later for the an awesome prequel The Mummy Begins.

Rachel Weisz probably won't be returning for The Mummy 3 and then the next story: Rachel Weisz is a Smart Person. Do you did that on purpose Empire!

The Mummy remain Sommers' sole good movie.

I like Brendan Fraser, but it'll be pointless to just rehash Imhotep once more and I'd be surprised if Weisz returned.

Stephen Sommers directed a great B monster movie 'Deep Rising'

im lookin forward to this! Fraiser is a great actor (just watch his eps of scrubs for proof! i cried like a child when he died!) and im not so sure about wiez turning it down! Didnt she recently get booed at her latest film? Shes done a risk movie now its maybe time to do something safe! Maybe they could do a film with Fraiser's character exploring with his son! (altho not the annoying kid from returns!) but surely they need some kind of mummy related villian for this too actually work as the mummy three? And just so you all know THANK GOD SOMMERS ISNT GETTING WORK ANYMORE! VAN HELSING WAS SHIT, BUT IT COULD HAVE BEEN FANTASTIC IF NOT FOR SOMMERS INVOLVEMENT IN THE WHOLE BLOODY TRAINWRECK OF A FILM!

Yeah doesn't sound to good. Didnt like The Muummy movies that much anyway and the only piece of work Sommers did that I am fond of is Van Helsing and thats only because its so bad its good!

I loved the Mummy movies, and if you watch the second one it's an object lesson in how to do a proper summer blockbuster, it has humour and story and a big action sequence about once every 10 minutes. Too bad Sommers aint gonna be back, I heard he might have been working on a remake of Jason and the Argonauts?

I liked The Mummy and I enjoy Smallville so a combination of the both should be good. However, my only complaint would be that Smallville is sometimes very linear, whereas the Mummy 1 & 2 never had this problem, lets hope that this is the case for the closing chapter, rather than a dry predicatable kids film (a 15 cert would be nice).

I'll admit we don't need a new Mummy movie at all, actually we didn't need The Mummy Returns. Does this mean I'll give The Mummy 3 a miss? No! Of course I'll watch it. I loved both of the movies and they were what cinema desperately needs, light entertainment. Pirates did it well and The Mummy as well. With Indiana 4 seemingly taking forever we might as well go for the alternatives. It'll be pure pop corn entertainment. :(

i'm a little less than enthusiastic about this one. but, having said that i enjoyed (and own actually) both previous mummies. so, i won't say this is a waste of time coz it's not, it's not needed, but if it turns out alright it'll be worth going 2 see it.

I can understand them wanting to cash in on a third but like the article says.  Brendan Fraser is not the big star people thought he'd be after the Mummy films also its been 7 or 8 years since the last one.  Maybe i'd go and c this but i dunno...i personally liked the other films.

Maybe, just maybe, Sean Connery could play his father. He'll run away from boulders and such and... ah nevermind, it'll never work. Quite frankly I can see this film going the same way as every other '3rd in the series!' movie lately. Over bloated, over the top with SFX, lacking in plot(s), full of holes and leaving you wondering why they haven't stopped already. I won't believe this film will be worth watching until it comes out, hopefully it'll prove me wrong and be a great romp, more than likely it'll crash and burn as far as quality goes, but still cash in.


A writer lives, at best, in a state of astonishment. Beneath any feeling he has of the good or the evil of the world lies a deeper one of wonder at it all. To transmit that feeling, he writes.
