What's Playing is reporting that a new sequel to The Scorpion King is being lined up called Scorpion King: Rise of the Dead, with Victor Webster (Castle) set to star.

This third installment will be a straight-to-DVD sequel like the second movie, Scorpion King 2: Rise of a Warrior. Here's a brief excerpt from the site's article, which describes the plot:

"Scorpion King: Rise of the Dead will see Mathayus (Webster) taking on impenetrable bad dudes in the wilds of the Northern Tribes in 3000 BC."

Roel Reiné will direct the new movie. Victor Webster beat out Mike O'Hearn for the role. No production schedule was given for the project.
