Jet Li to Play Mummy in Mummy 3

Prepare to witness the wrath of Jet Li and a terracotta when the son of Rick and Evelyn O'Connell unearths more than he bargained for in The Mummy 3. According to Stax at IGN, Jet Li will star in the upcoming Mummy sequel which will focus on the child of the adventurers from the first film.

When I first read there was going to be a new Mummy movie, I was a little concerned. I didn't like the second one as much as the first. In fact, I was becoming wary of all the Universal horror remakes after Van Helsing, but getting Jet Li to star in a movie directed by the director of Dragon: The Bruce Lee Story is enough geek-nip to overcome any fears I might have.

We're talking Jet Li here!! And Mummies!! And terracotta warriors!! And the Forbidden City!!

Hat tip to Anne Thompson of the Hollywood Reporter.

All we need are Ninjas, Pirates, Dinosaurs, and Giant Robots to make a film completely invincible to any criticism. Ooh, ooh, and cowboys...zombies...

Just so long as there are no mummy-pygmies...
