The Mummy III: Dear God no!

It would have been daft not to make a sequel to the original 1999 The Mummy film. So they did; but it was shit! However for some bizarre reason the studio has greenlighted at least a script for a third Mummy film and it appears that the new Mummy villain will be Chinese.

The desiccated remains of China's first uber-Emperor Qin Shihuang… Wang wants to take over the world by releasing his army of warriors who were cursed and turned into terracotta statues a few millennia ago."

Stephen Sommers is not writing apparently, it'll be Alfred Gough and Miles Millar, the creators of Smallville. There's no confirmation that Brendan Fraser and Rachel Weisz are involved with the film, but their parts are written.

Huzzah!
Gough and Millar wrote Spider-Man 2, and have written the script for Iron Man, which means that this at it's worst will still be better than DOOM at it's best.

@ Sith Apologist: Enough already.

@ Mark: That's assuming they don't get Ewe Boll or somone equally as talented to Direct! But I do hope it's good enough to eradicate the memory of The Mummy Returns, like Batmin Begins did to Batman and Robin.
