Nail In The Coffin Of Mummy Franchise

As folk wondered if Brendan Fraser and Rachel Weisz would return for Rob Cohen's Mummy 3, some clown was scribing a story about their kid; that goofy little shit from the god-awful The Mummy Returns is now grown up and it seems that the third installment is his very own sequel.

According to sources, the third Mummy movie will focus on Alex O'Connell, Rick and Evelyn's son so Universal doesn't have to pay the stars and can just fling a Bruckheimer-esque amount money at the CGI -- because they know the story will be so fuckin' weak.

Alfred Gough and Miles Millar (Smallville) have penned the latest script (I hope they get paid a Bruckheimer-load for ending their careers); of which a few pages were leaked and is how everyone knows how turgid this will be.

Bizarrely, Cohen (who previously made the excrement The Skulls yes, but can make celluloid masterpieces Stealth, xXx and Dragonheart if he tries) recently announced that both Jet Li and Michelle Yeoh would be appearing in his Mummy. The new hero hasn't been chosen yet, but apparently the twerp's supposed to be in his early twenties.
