Earlier this year, we learned that Universal was rebooting The Mummy franchise with Jon Spaihts (Prometheus) to write the screenplay, and Roberto Orci and Alex Kurtzman on board to produce.  In September, director Len Wiseman (Total Recall) joined the project, and now he has provided some brief details on how his movie will differ from the recent Brendan Fraser flicks.  The character originally found popularity on the screen in 1932 when it was played by the legendary Boris Karloff. Hit the jump for more.  The Mummy reboot is set for a possible 2014 release. Speaking to Movieweb, Wiseman provided a brief description of what the new version of The Mummy would be: "It's horror. Its epic. It's more of a modern day version of what would happen if we came across a mummy in our world today. It is pretty fascinating." Oh no!  The Mummy is using the Internet!  Kill it! Kill It With Technology! »
