Set in the present day, “The Mummy” is directed by Alex Kurtzman and written by Christopher McQuarrie and Jon Spaihts. The action film will center around an ancient princess who is awakened from her crypt beneath the desert, bringing with her malevolence grown over millennia, and terrors that defy human comprehension. Russell Crowe, Courtney B. Vance, Sofia Boutella, Annabelle Wallis and Jake Johnson co-star.

This new reboot is designed to be the first feature in a Universal Monsters cinematic world that will also include standalone Wolf Man, Van Helsing, Creature from the Black Lagoon, Bride of Frankenstein and Invisible Man films over the next several years.
