After joining the project back in March, with filming lasting for just over four months, Annabelle Wallis has now wrapped up her time on Universal’s upcoming “The Mummy.”
From all of us at Universal Monsters Universe, we’d like to extend our very best to Annabelle Wallis as she’s completed filming on The Mummy. From Day 1 of her delving into the “eerily delightful world of monsters” on April 5, 2016 to her last day on September 2nd, 2016.
It’s been interesting following pre-production and principal photography for The Mummy as the film has presented a few surprises in regards to casting, and a seemingly sliding wrap date. As we originally reported, The Mummy finished principal photography on August 13th while in Namibia. While this was partially true, filming was extended for nearly three more weeks with cast and crew returning to London. It is here where Sofia Boutella (The Mummy) wrapped up her role on Alex Kurtzman’s upcoming film for good. As to the nature of what the work was, it is unclear at this time, however it seems as if it wasn’t anything to do with main photography on the film. Yet the biggest surprise would come when we learned and confirmed through multiple sources that production would head to France for a short time. What was the production of The Mummy doing in Bordeaux? What we can confirm is that Annabelle Wallis was in France and that she wrapped this week on Friday, September 2nd.

“A wrap on The Mummy. An absolute honor working with everyone involved. What an incredible journey we’ve only just begun.”
It has been an amazing journey for Ms. Wallis as she’s not only the main female lead opposite Sofia Boutella and Tom Cruise, but also a part of the first film in Universal’s upcoming Monsters Universe of films.
As always, stay tuned to Universal Monsters Universe for the latest on The Mummy.
“Tom Cruise headlines a spectacular, all-new cinematic version of the legend that has fascinated cultures all over the world since the dawn of civilization: The Mummy.
Thought safely entombed in a crypt deep beneath the unforgiving desert, an ancient queen (Sofia Boutella of Kingsman: The Secret Service and Star Trek Beyond) whose destiny was unjustly taken from her is awakened in our current day, bringing with her malevolence grown over millennia and terrors that defy human comprehension.
From the sweeping sands of the Middle East through hidden labyrinths under modern-day London, The Mummy brings a surprising intensity and balance of wonder and thrills in an imaginative new take that ushers in a new world of gods and monsters.”
The Mummy is directed by Alex Kurtzman, from a script by Jon Spaihts, Dylan Kussman, and Christopher McQuarrie. The film stars Tom Cruise, Annabelle Wallis, Jake Johnson, Marwan Kenzari, Courtney B. Vance, Russell Crowe and Sofia Boutella as the iconic creature now revealed to be an ancient queen. The film opens June 9, 2017.
