If aspects of The Mummy production have seemed quiet, it’s most likely because filming has shifted from the streets of Oxford to the historical film studio we know as Shepperton Studios.
Shepperton Studios, also referred to as Pinewood, is the location most famous for housing films like Avengers: Age of Ultron, Doctor Strange, and 2017’s Beauty and the Beast. Interestingly, Shepperton was also used for Stephen Sommers’ 1999 The Mummy and 2014’s Guardians of the Galaxy, which make-up artist Lizzie Georgiou (2017’s The Mummy) worked on.
While filming takes place at Pinewood, we’ll probably see less of cast members like Tom Cruise and Annabelle Wallis. But with San Diego Comic Con three months away, I’d expect to see a first look at the film soon enough.
