Sources report that Universal Studios are on the hunt for a big movie star to anchor the film. Tom Cruise is allegedly Universal's top choice. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Universal is yet to comment. There are no updates from Cruise' camp either.
The Mummy is only one of the many films Universal is looking to remake in hopes of creating a cinematic universe that involves characters like Dracula, Frankenstein and Van Helsing, to name a few.
Meanwhile, Cruise is looking forward to shooting the sixth installment of Mission Impossible and has upcoming films including Mena and Jack Reacher: Never Go Back.
