Stephen Sommers’ “The Mummy”, which starred Brendan Fraser and Rachel Weisz spawned two sequels and allowed Sommers to make the misguided “Van Helsing”. Since then, Universal announced it was rebooting “The Mummy” with Len Wiseman (“Total Recall”) at the helm and John Spaihts (“Prometheus”) writing the script. Now comes report that “The Hunger Games” writer Billy Ray will also write a script for the film. The thought is that the two scripts will be combined.
