Maria Bello Says Mummy 4 is Coming

While talking with MTV, Maria Bello, who replaces Rachel Weisz in the upcoming “Mummy 3: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor”, says that she is already signed for a whole series of new “Mummy” films, and she’s sure “Mummy 4″ is on its way very soon. And you know, for a woman usually known for more indie fare, she sure seems enthusiastic about getting tied up with a commercial franchise. I guess the money must be good.

Bello admits to having so much fun, in fact, that she’s looking forward to three more “Mummy” movies, confessing that she’s already signed on for a whole trilogy of sequels.

“I don’t know when, but it’s going,” she said. “[There will] absolutely be ‘The Mummy 4.’ ”

The box office for “Mummy 3″ should be good, given the fanbase of the franchise, so she’s probably right. I wouldn’t be surprised to hear the fourth installment announced after the film’s first weekend opening.

Here’s Maria with MTV:

      I think that rob cohen sucks as a director for making the mummy movie go allover the world he should go back to egypt for imhoteps second return and make like a wierd clash between both of the mummys he really needs to get rachel back she had a better personality in the film but maria bello is really bad in the mummy 3 and she doesn’t portray the character of evie in the film very well,so she needs to stop daydreamng like shes the best in the mummy series and they need to get rachel back to make the movies better.

    She turned it down because the script was crap and the director was too lazy/wanted money faster so he hired a less talented actress with no charisma in her role rather than improve the quality of the film to keep Rachel.

    If she'd taken it, it would only make her resume look worse. So why?

    I think they are terrible without her though. Rob Cohen is an idiot. I'm glad they are bringing back Sommers to direct the Fourth but the Mummy series will never recover from losing Rachel.
