Last week, we reported that Brendan Frasier is set to reprise his role as the Foreign Legion soldier Rick O'Connell, featured in the Universal franchise The Mummy.

The script, written by Alfred Gough and Miles Millar (Smallville) re-imagines the character in another epic adventure. The studio has made an offer to Joe Johnston, (Jurassic Park III) to direct the film being readied to begin shooting early next year. reports that Rachel Weisz mentioned a few words about her possible involvement in the project: "I know there's a new script but I haven't read it yet. Nothing's definite yet and should the film be done, it's probably going to happen next summer. And if so, I would definitely like to be in it"
