    Not sure we need a reboot/reimagining of either of them (I thought the Mummy movies were pretty good; didn't see Van Helsing) but I like the writers.

    Poor Stephen Sommers...kicked from the "G.I. Joe" sequel and now they're "re-imagining" two of his most famous movies. As for Orci and Kurtzman, I'm happy for them. Clearly, "Transformers" opened a lot of doors and I'm glad to see them working on other big-budget projects.

    Still, Sommers's "Mummy" was, in my view, a damn good action movie (with a great Indiana Jones-style atmosphere and humor) and it's gonna be tough to top it.

    The Mummy 1 and 2 was one of my favorite. I would like to see this new take of the franchise.

    Hmm strange, a few weeks ago it was announced that the Prometheus screenwriter Jon Spaihts will write the Mummy reboot. Obviously something went wrong. Nevertheless the first Mummy was absolutely brilliant and I can't wait to see what Orci and Kurtzman would do. They are pretty good writers.
    About Van Helsing - Tom Cruise is starring and producing. This doesn't sound good.

    Quote from the article:

    Kurtzman and Orciís K/O Paper Products will develop and produce a modern reimagining of Universal library titles including The Mummy, alongside producer Sean Daniel and writer Jon Spaihts.


    On Sommers: Love Mummy 1&2. Van Helsing (2004)? Eh, I got over my expectations of it (at the time) and enjoy it these days for what it is. GI Joe, not so much.


    On Bob and Alex's stuff: Technically they're going to be re-imagining of re-imaginings aren't they? Just an observation and not a knock, I like the Universal monsters, looking forward to seeing where they go with it.

    As long as they don't go all Scorpion King 3 on us....
