The Mummy gets a reboot

Len Wiseman to direct The Mummy reboot
[source: collider]
Things are moving rather quickly on Universal’s reboot of The Mummy.  It was announced back in May that Star Trek screenwriters/prolific producers Roberto Orci and Alex Kurtzman would be developing reboots of both The Mummy and Van Helsing, with Tom Cruise attached to star in the latter.  In subsequent interviews Kurtzman hinted at approaching the reboots with a darker tone than their original counterparts, and sure enough, Underworld and Total Recall director Len Wiseman is now being lined up to take the helm of The Mummy.

The script for the Mummy reboot is being written by Prometheus co-writer Jon Spaihts, and Wiseman tells Deadline that he connected with the project’s darker take:

“When I first heard Universal was relaunching this, that is the image that popped into my head, the period tale, the old monster, but when Bob and Alex pitched it, there was a great new take and approach, and a very different mummy as well. It’s a darker twist on the material, a scarier version.” [hit the jump to continue]

Rurouni Kenshin in negotiations for Philippine release

Well yesterday there was buzz over the news that the movie is in negotiations to be released in the Philippines, but not by Warner Philippines; but by Pioneer films instead (they distributed movies like Sadako 3D, The Hunger Games, locally). News first broke out of the facebook page MOVIE PUNCH which is said to be the facebook trade name for Pioneer Films.

For now, we wait if the negotiations will go smoothly; and if indeed it will be reeased here, and on when the release date would be. MOVIE PUNCH's admin posted on its facebook site:
"We are posting this for feedbacks before we really negotiate with the production since this film is quite expensive, we are making sure na hindi naman kmi malulugi nito, (we are making sure that we do not loss profits here). (We) will update on this page once na confirm na, thanks guys for your comments regarding this film, we will seriously study this development."
