It looks like Universal’s The Mummy reboot is coming unraveled.
Mama director Andy Muschetti has exited The Mummy due to creative differences, TheWrap reports.
Jon Spaihts wrote the current draft of the script, which reimagined The Mummy franchise in modern day with new characters not seen in previous iterations and a protagonist imbued with a human personality.
Explains the site, when Len Wiseman was previously attached to direct The Mummy, he indicated that Kurtzman and Orci were envisioning a darker, scarier take on the Mummy mythology that would still appeal to all audiences. Apparently, the project has changed direction, as Muschetti wanted to deliver a darker take rather than the four-quadrant, more family-friendly action-adventure blockbuster that Universal now has in mind.
