“Doom Patrol” star Brendan Fraser says he’d most certainly be up for the challenge of doing another sequel to his ’90s horror classic “The Mummy” if Universal came calling.
“Absolutely! Working with Rachel, it’s Rachel f’in Weisz. She’s wonderful, you know, if you’re really impressed with talent and good humor. A belly laugh that could break a window. I mean, come on. It’s Rachel Weisz, she’s lovely. And believe everything. She got stuck with all the exposition in that show. Which is good, that means all the talking. I was just the guy like, ‘Hurry up, let’s go, come on! That thing is gonna go bang!’ It worked out.”
Fraser isn’t stupid though, he knows it’d be a challenge to put together.
“Just gotta say, I know how hard it is to make that movie. I tried to do it three times, and the essential ingredient is fun. You gotta remember to have fun. So if there’s a fun way to approach it again, I’m all in.”
After Fraser’s “Mummy” trilogy Universal cast Tom Cruise in the ill-fated reboot “The Mummy” – considering it’s performance at the box office, don’t be surprised if Universal hasn’t considered a Fraser-led “Mummy 4” in recent times.
