‘Mummy’ Reboot to Follow Navy SEALs in Iraq?

Universal Pictures has been developing an Untitled Mummy Reboot for quite some time, and back in July, the studio confirmed that this project will be the first in a sprawling, inter-connected franchise that will bring back new versions of the studio’s classic monsters, such as Frankenstein, Dracula and many more. An end credit sequence in this month’s Dracula Untold helped set up this monster-centric universe, but the Untitled Mummy Reboot will launch the franchise in 2016.

Today, Superhero Movies News reportedly got their hands on the new script for this Mummy Reboot, and have revealed the reboot’s spoiler-free opening scene, set in modern day, which you can check out below.

“The story follows Navy Seal Tyler Colt and his mission in the Iraqi desert to find a group of terrorists hiding out in a bunker. To him and his teams surprise the terrorists within the bunker turn out be nothing more then some grave robbers who have all magically died. Upon entering the bunker Tyler and his team also succumb to some mystical forces out of their control. They soon realize the bunker they have infiltrated is actually a centuries old tomb. Mayhem erupts as all the Navy seal members start turning on one another and are captivated by the forces within the tomb. Tyler is the only one to make it all the way deep within the tomb alive to find an Black Iron Sarcophagus. It’s marked with Egyptian symbols like the Ankh and Eye of Horus. Here Tyler is entranced by the forces to open up and release what is inside. But after placing his hand onto the sarcophagus he is immediately stabbed in the palm with a star shaped symbol. From then on his mind is cursed with visions of Ashurbanipal, King of Assyria…..The Mummy.”

The site also reports that the script includes other characters such as archaeologist Jenny Halsley, mysterious billionaire Lorenzo Montanari and Malik, the leader of a group known as the Temple Brothers. These details tie into the end credits scene in Dracula Untold, where Luke Evans‘ title character is seen in a modern-day market.

Of course, it hasn’t been confirmed if these details are accurate or not, and it isn’t known if these details come from the most recent version of the script, or an earlier draft. Alex Kurtzman signed on to direct back in July, from a script that was originally written by Jon Spaihts, with Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci providing revisions.

Alex Kurtzman and Chris Morgan (Fast & Furious 7) are overseeing this monster franchise for Universal, which will also likely include The Invisible Man, The Wolf Man and Van Helsing, although no other titles have been officially confirmed.

What do you think about these plot details? Are you excited to see all of these Universal Pictures monsters connected to each other in one big franchise? Chime in with your thoughts below.

Untitled Mummy Reboot comes to theaters June 24th, 2016. The film is directed by Alex Kurtzman.

Talk about making major moves. After slinging some bars during the BET Cypher, King Los’ stock has been steadily rising. Baltimore rapper announced during his interview with Ebro in the Morning that he placed his John Hancock on a deal with RCA Records/88 Classic.

With the Baltimore rapper switching teams in terms of labels, apparently, there’s no love lost between him and his former boss Puff Daddy. In fact, to make things even more interesting, Puff will take on the responsibility of crafting together King Los’ debut album. In addition to signing with RCA, King Los will also bring over his record label After Platinum Entertainment.

J Grand, SVP of A&R and Marketing at RCA spoke highly of the newly acquired spitter in a press release entailing the rapper’s signing.

“King Los is ‘the greatest rapper on the planet,’ or so he says. I happen to completely agree,” said J Grand. Los echoed Grand’s sentiment by labeling his signing as “history in the making.”

Check out his first track as a member of RCA records here. Expect Los’ debut to be out 2015.

Julianne Moore & Ellen Page Were Banned From Filming At A Catholic School Because Their Film Is About A Lesbian Couple!

Well this is super disappointing to hear about!

Ellen Page and Julianne Moore are currently shooting a powerful film titled Freeheld, where they play a lesbian couple pretty much fighting for basic human rights.

Well, when looking for a location to shoot a particular scene, the scouts found Salesian High School in the New York area, which is a Catholic school, that could pass as a town hall.

Sounds perfect, right?

[ Photos: Celebs Who Are Out & Proud! ]

Well, after initially approving the shoot to happen on the school’s grounds, the principal John Flaherty let one of the films producers, Michael Shamberg, know that they had changed their minds.

Michael explained:

‘They turned us down because of the subject matter. The school has approved other shoots in the past. The mayor personally came to the set and greeted us and introduced his teenage daughters to Julianne. Clearly, there are a lot of different attitudes in the area.’

WOW! Well, that’s certainly infuriating to know.

He explained his defense in an email back to the principal, stating his case.

Michael said:

‘[The film is] not about gay marriage, nor are the women attempting to get married. It is about recognizing the dignity of a woman who was a brave civil servant. I believe the theme of the movie is what Pope Francis recognized just yesterday when he called for the Church to welcome and accept gay people.’

Well, the principal said he would pass along the email to the school’s president, Father John Serio, but after that they didn’t hear anything.

Radio silence.

One of the producers on the film, Kelly Bush, explained their frustration with the incident.

She said:

Freeheld captures the inequality and bigotry that one couple faced while coping with cancer and the end of life. That our film was denied access to a location because of the subject matter — a same-sex couple fighting for their legal rights — illustrates just how important it is that this story be told.’

However, the criticisms didn’t end there.

Ellen even took to her Twitter to call out the high school on their bigotry and discrimination against the film and it’s subject matter.

She tweeted:

Preach it, Ellen! It’s sad we have to live in a world like this…

But people will only change when they want to! Sigh.

Taylor Swift Reveals Her Biggest Fear On ‘The Ellen Degeneres Show’: Watch

She's Totally Serious

Taylor Swift stopped by The Ellen Degeneres Show today (October 23) to discuss some interesting, non-music related topics — like her bizarre fear of sea urchins. The “Welcome To New York” songstress revealed to the talk show host that she’s scared of the ocean creatures: “They’re like a grenade. They’re sitting there waiting to completely injure you.” She then goes into hilariously extensive detail as to why everyone should be afraid of them, to the audience’s amusement. 

Swift was recently appointed as music advisor for The Voice, where she gets to spend a lot of time with the show’s judges. Watch the singer talk about Adam Levine‘s weakness after the jump!
