Universal Pictures’ Dark Universe will kick off with the release of The Mummy, the latest reboot of the 1932 horror classic. Of course, this will be the second remake of the film, with the first having starred Brendan Fraser as the heroic lead who takes on the classic movie monster. Although Fraser will not be involved in the latest version of The Mummy, the actor did express his support for the film and his appreciation for his fans during an interview with Access Hollywood.
When asked about the fan calls for Fraser to be involved in the latest Mummy film, the actor stated that the film will still be appealing to audiences:
“I know very little about the actual project itself, but I know it’s going to be great for an audience, because they were always there for that thrilling popcorn movie feeling and adventure. I’m grateful for all of the support over the years.”

Thought safely entombed in a tomb deep beneath the unforgiving desert, an ancient princess whose destiny was unjustly taken from her is awakened in our current day, bringing with her malevolence grown over millennia and terrors that defy human comprehension. From the sweeping sands of the Middle East through hidden labyrinths under modern-day London, The Mummy brings a surprising intensity and balance of wonder and thrills in an imaginative new take that ushers in a new world of gods and monsters.
Directed by Alex Kurtzman, the film stars Tom Cruise, Sofia Boutella, Annabelle Wallis, Jake Johnson, Courtney B. Vance, and Russell Crowe.
The Mummy will be released in theaters on June 9, 2017.
