In his production blog for “Mummy 3: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor”, director Rob Cohen is practically giddy as he reports that Jet Li has arrived at the film’s Montreal set and is ready to shoot his scenes. That’s all fine and well, but I’m more excited that Cohen has posted three images from the movie — or, actually, two images and one behind-the-scenes. The first image is of Brendan Frasier as Rick O’Connell and the second is of Maria Bello as Evie O’Connell, while the third features actresses Michelle Yeoh and Isabella Leong enjoying some down time on the set, which looks suspiciously like a cave or “tomb”.
In the Far East, trouble-seeking father-and-son duo Rick (Fraser) and Alex O’Connell (Ford) unearth the mummy of the first Emperor of Qin (Li) — a shape-shifting entity who was cursed by a wizard (Yeoh) centuries ago.
Don’t expect Jet and the Dragon Emperor until August 2008.
