Last week, fans got their first look at The Mummy star Sofia Boutella with set photos as production continues. Filming has been under way since late April, when we got our first look at Tom Cruise and his co-star Annabelle Wallis. As production continues, we have even more photos of Tom Cruise and Annabelle Wallis who are seen springing into action.
The photos surfaced on various Twitter pages, featuring Tom Cruise and Annabelle Wallis going on the run from unseen enemies. There is very little we know about the scene itself, except both actors are seen running from someone, or something. It's certainly possible that both stars were running from Sofia Boutella's title character, but we don't know for certain.
Thought safely entombed in a crypt deep beneath the unforgiving desert, an ancient queen (Sofia Boutella}) whose destiny was unjustly taken from her, is awakened in our current day, bringing with her malevolence grown over millennia and terrors that defy human comprehension. From the sweeping sands of the Middle East through hidden labyrinths under modern-day London, The Mummy brings a surprising intensity and balance of wonder and thrills in an imaginative new take that ushers in a new world of gods and monsters.
Tom Cruise is reportedly playing a special forces soldier who teams with an archaeologist (Annabelle Wallis), although those character details have yet to be confirmed. Sofia Boutella, who had a breakthrough role in last year's Kingsman: The Secret Service, is playing the Mummy. The supporting cast includes Jurassic World and New Girl star Jake Johnson signed on for a role in March, which was specifically written for him. The actor will play a member of the military with ties to Tom Cruise's unnamed character. There have been rumors that Russell Crowe's character could have his own spinoff. There have previously been reports that the movie centers on Navy SEALS in Iraq, but that was never confirmed.
Alex Kurtzman is directing the Mummy Reboot, working from a script by Jon Spaihts, with Chris Morgan and Sean Daniel producing this action-adventure thriller. This movie follows 2014's Dracula Untold, which ended with a prologue that brought its vampire into present day as part of this sprawling cinematic universe. The studio is also developing The Invisible Man, which will star Johnny Depp, along with Van Helsing, The Bride of Frankenstein and The Wolfman. stay tuned for more updates on Universal Pictures Mummy Reboot as production continues in the U.K. Until then, check out these new set photos below.
