Universal Pictures was first in talks with Len Wiseman (Total Recall) to direct its upcoming "The Mummy" reboot. But last July, the helmer dropped out. The studio quickly brought on "Mamma" director Andy Muschetti. And now comes word that he has dropped out as well. We know from Wiseman's old comments that Universal was developing a darker, scarier version of "The Mummy" that would still appeal to all audiences. The studio eventually decided to go into a more family-friendly direction, something that Muschetti doesn't want to be part of. The original trilogy grossed a whopping $1.25 billion at the worldwide box office. The reboot will include completely different characters and the story will take place in the modern age. »
