UMU reports the latest news regarding “The Mummy.”
A month ago, Universal Monsters Universe learned that filming had resumed on Alex Kurtzman’s The Mummy. While we were initially unclear on the nature of whether or not The Mummy had entered reshoots, we were able to confirm with one of our sources close to production that they “would call it additional shoot..”
While principal photography wrapped in September 2, 2016, additional shooting took place between February and March of 2017. While we only have official confirmation that additional shooting took place on The Mummy, we know that Sofia Boutella was present for filming.
In regards to more news on The Mummy front, Annabelle Wallis and Sofia Boutella were present in New York City this past week from Monday, March 6th to Thursday, March 9th for photoshoots. You could expect to see these sometime in May.
This week also saw makeup artist Danielle Harding post a Throwback Thursday picture of herself in Namibia, while filming The Mummy. Ms. Harding is just another one of the many cast and crew members that has supported UMU since the start of principal photography. If you’re on Instagram, we recommend giving her a follow. Don’t expect any spoilers, though, and please don’t bother asking her either.
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 tomb deep beneath the unforgiving desert, an ancient princess (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. The film opens June 9, 2017.
