Universal's Reboot Of The Mummy Loses Its Director
Posted by Joseph Lee on 05.06.2014

The Wrap reports that director Andy Muschetti (Mama has left Universal's reboot of The Mummy over creative differences. The current draft of the script was written by Jon Spaihts, which is set in modern times with new characters and a protagonist "imbued with a human personality".

Sean Daniel will produce with Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci, who recently split up for future projects, although this is unrelated to Muschetti's departure. Len Wiseman was previosuly attached to the film and said that Kurtzman and Orci were planning a darker and scarier version that would still "appeal to all audiences". Muschetti also wanted a darker take but Universal now has a more family-friendly action-adventure version planned.

Muschetti was previously forced to leave the adaptation of Josh Malerman's novel Bird Box (for Scott Stuber's Bluegrass Films) when he was set to direct The Mummy. It's unknown if he will return to Bird Box, but Universal is considering him for other big films. His last film, Mama, starred Jessica Chastain and earned $147 million worldwide.

Universal has been trying to create new versions of their classic monsters. They released The Wolfman in 2010 and will release Dracula Untold in October.
