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.
"You know why the departures and the arrivals at LAX are on separate levels? So the 30,000 heartbreakers that come here each month don't notice the 30,000 that are leaving with their hearts broken."
The Mummy 1 and 2 was one of my favorite. I would like to see this new take of the franchise.

About Van Helsing - Tom Cruise is starring and producing. This doesn't sound good.
Kurtzman and Orci’s 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....

‘Van Helsing’ Co-Writer Eric Heisserer Teases His Explicitly Non-Superhero Take on the Character
"I don’t like the idea that we’re infusing our public and our pop culture with the idea that only super people can solve the world’s problems. I like the idea of the everyday hero stepping up to the plate and getting things fixed.”
