Mummy Money

As previously reported here - months ago - Rachel Weisz will not be returning to the Mummy franchise in part 3. And not as previously reported here, Brendan Fraser will be.

Essentially, both Fraser and Weisz found the script rather lacklustre. Fraser was eventually seduced, however, by an incredibly lucrative deal - and Weisz may well have been too, had she been offered one. The glass ceiling is alive and well in Hollywood, and Rachel Weisz's nose is smuched against the glass.

Rob Cohen is directing, and he's hardly either visionary or consummate technician. This is likely to be quite a terrible film.
